A majestic Pacific Great Blue Heron with a foggy Boundary Bay backdrop. This subspecies of heron is unique to the Pacific Coast, confined in range from Prince William Sound in Alaska south to Puget Sound in Washington, where they live year-round.
Red-tailed hawk,dark phase, on Saturday. I've been putting my new lens to good use photoing raptors over the past two weekends. The light was perfect and the hawk was a stunner. Totally focused, wild eyes and huge. #hawks #redtailedhawksofinstagram #redtailedhawks #raptors #washington #wildlife #birds #birdsofprey #pnw #pnwonderland #wild #westernnature #thenwadventure

Cozy and warm 🧡

Met this beautiful Short-eared Owl along Boundary Bay in the thick fog yesterday. I love their striking yellow eyes outlined in black. Owls out here compete with Northern Harriers for prey, often stealing meals from each other.
Saturdays sunset was incredible! Last time I shot at mystic beach it was low tide, but there was no colour in the sky. So I've been sitting on that photo as a reminder to try again. Luckily Saturday was the day everything aligned. I was trying to get so many different angles that I forgot to stretch before. Stood up after the hour to a major cramp in my leg, from being crouched so long! But it was worth it! More photos from the same night soon! • • #pnwbc #westcoast_exposures #roamtheisland #vancouverisland #sharevi #vanisleco #explorevanisle #explorevi #adventurevisuals #amazingvanisle #tourismvictoriabc #explorevictoria #blogvictoria #victoriabuzz #seekingtheoutdoors #victoria #exploresooke #uvicpix #sharethecoast #unlimitedcanada #lifeincanada #imagesofcanada #tourcanada #explorecanada #ig_underdogz #amazingvanisland #canadaday #moodygrams #wildcanadianyear #mysticbeach
EC Manning Provincial Park, BC⠀ ⠀ There's something quite magical about snowshoeing through the stillness of the park - nothing but the sound of snow underfoot and the occasional whoosh as the crystalline snow falls from the heavy-laden trees.⠀ ⠀ #manningpark#cascadia#explorebc#beautifulbc#bcparks#pnw#snowshoeing#winterwonderland#cascadiaexplored #westernnature #game_of_tones

Hike #3 , Heather Lake.
“Never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As we honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, we want to remind you not only of the challenges ahead, but also how far we have come. This past Wednesday, our #CleanEnergyJobs debut hearing took place in #Salem . With a room overflowing with opposition and climate activists, it’s still difficult to gauge the final outcome of this effort—a decade in the making. In early February, we have the opportunity to encourage our state leaders to adopt our Clean Energy Jobs bill. This bill would put a cap on Oregon’s #ClimatePollution and set prices for each ton of climate pollution emitted by large fossil fuel companies, while also reinvesting proceeds into clean energy solutions such as #wind , #solar , and more. Join the tradition Oregonians have practiced for generations and stand for the water, air and land we love and share. Dr. King mentioned that we must not look the other way when challenges arise - we must continue weather the storm ahead, hold strong for our #environment , and reduce the harmful effects of #ClimateChange as one. Photo from @majeedbadizadegan Selected by @sotauch ---- Each week, will we feature several photos that we believe best represents the true beauty of Oregon. Don’t forget to tag Oregon Environmental Council on your next photo and use the hashtag #ItsYourOregon to be featured on our feed!
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~MLK Jr. ❤️
Evening light on Lincoln Peak on the shoulder of Mt. Baker, a photograph made on a snowshoe trip several friends and I did yesterday. We hiked all day and several hours into the evening, making our way back to our car in darkness by the light of headlamps. If you have never hiked in the dark, you really should try it cuz it's wonderful. #landscapephotography #outdoorphotography #themountainsarecalling #optoutside #westernnature #upperleftusa #pnw #pnwonderland #mtbaker #kulshan #thegreatnorthwest #hikinglife #snowshoe #snowshoeing #greatnorthcollective #wanderwashington #goldenhour #olympuscamera #olympuscameras #em1markii #hikewashington #livewashington #beautifulearth #briskoutdoors

Short hike for number 2.
The fascinating colors of nature 💚
Could only hike the roads basically but I HAD to get outside. Taking it easy is too boring.
