Rise early, adventure early, live early. . The world waits for no one; always be ready to get out of a comfort zone and be ready to capture beauty before the world rushes past. . . #tallahassee #florida #lovefl #visittheusa #ihearttally #roadtripusa #teamcanon #canonfanphoto
As night turns into morning, the sky began to light up with the colors of dawn and the fading twinkling stars. Never be unwilling to go, as magical moments are always awaiting on the canvas of the Earth. . . . #lovefl #ihearttally #canonfanphoto #teamcanon #tallahassee #florida #roamflorida #visittheusa
The Sun's final touch on its canvas always creates the masterpiece of the Earth; people may come and go, songs may end, but the beauty of nature will always present itself to those willing to find it. . . #ihearttally #lovefl #tallahassee #florida #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #visittheusa #roamflorida
As the sun dips below the horizon and cotton candy clouds float across the sky, all we can do is wait for the heart of the world to rise again, yes, rise again. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #visittheusa #lovefl #ihearttally #tallahassee #florida #roamflorida
The journey to the destination is half of the destination itself; for the adrenaline setting in and the blinding colors of the sun's final rays make the destination that much more breathtaking. . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #visittheusa #exploregeorgia #atlantatrails #columbusga #Georgia #onlyingeorgia
There are some places that hold a special place in your heart and you cannot wait to get back to. Some places where you always explore another area or find different colors and patterns. This is one of those places. . . #exploregeorgia @exploregeorgia #columbusga #georgia #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #visittheusa #providencecanyon #atlantatrails
As the winter sun slowly set, all the different layers presented themselves, shades of purple mountains in all their majesty rising high above the plains. Find peace in the silence of the wind, the vastness of the world and the setting Sun's canvas. . . Before this road trip, I always pictured Alabama far from my beloved Appalachians, and a state that lacked natural beauty. I could not have been more wrong. With hiking and views that rivaled North Carolina, I must say I am happy to have experienced what Alabama has to offer. . . #sweethomealabama @alabamatravel #hikealabama @hikealabama #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #talladega #alabama #visittheusa #thisisalabama @thisisalabama
Go out to the edge, where no one has gone before. It is there that you'll find peace, beauty, and the delights of creation. . . Getting here was perhaps the scariest thing I have ever done: climbing over frozen rocks, 2,400 ft above the valley floor in 20 degrees. But the sun's wintery light shining on distant peaks and the wind blowing past made it all worth it. . . #sweethomealabama @alabamatravel #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #talladega #alabama @hikealabama #hikealabama #visittheusa #thisisalabama @thisisalabama
Sometimes in order to experience the best of nature, you just have to sit down and take it all in. . . Many thanks to @lpentrack for sitting on these wet rocks! . . #exploregeorgia #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #columbusga #Georgia #wandernorthgeorgia #autumn #waterfall
Blue ridges rise high in the distance as a sea of gold fills the valleys below. Always keep your eyes open for sights like these, because it's the simplest things that give life meaning. . . . #exploregeorgia #columbusga #Georgia #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #wandernorthgeorgia #autumn #visittheusa
You never know what little things do to change scenes from monotonous to truly something special; all it takes is something as simple as a breeze to change a scene dramatically. . . Special thanks to @manders7446 for throwing these leaves up and picking them up all day! . . . #tallahassee #florida #lovefl #ihearttally #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #fsu #visittheusa
In those final few moments of light, everything began to glow orange and red; always be prepared to wait, as the greatest sights are always just waiting to be seen. It's moments like these that take your breath away and make you say wow . . #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #lovefl #ihearttally #tallahassee #florida #autumn #roamflorida
With gently rolling ridges, hints of autumn and high canyon walls, some scenes just demand your attention. . . . #exploregeorgia #providencecanyon #columbus #georgia #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #travels #fsu
Never step down from an awaiting adventure. Never back away from starry nights, rushing waters, or miles of trails, as these are the places where adventure makes the greatest picture. . . #auburn #alabama @auburnopelika #sweethomealabama #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #waterfalls #chewaclastatepark #roadtrip
Let thine light shine as bright as the stars above, for it in the darkest places where the greatest light is found. . . #lovefl #ihearttally #milkyway #tallahassee #florida #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #roamflorida
You can never really grasp at how small you are until you're in the presence of a giant. . . People have asked me if seeing the Milky Way in person is anything like the pictures; And my answer to that is both yes and no. I edit my pictures using a "slash-and-burn" technique, where the lighter (gassy) portions are brightened while the spidery dark middle is darkened to make the whole thing really 'pop.' But If you're in a place dark enough to really see it, to tilt your head back and see that it keeps going, then yes it is just as magical. The longer you look, the more light you see. . . Special thanks to @musikmo for not letting me venture out into the dark alone again! . . . #tallahassee #florida #lovefl #ihearttally #roamflorida #canonfanphoto #teamcanon #milkyway
Find a place away from the crowds, the business of life, and the normal. It's there that you can find yourself. . . "To me the mountain mass lies nobly mute, The whences and the whys I don't dispute. When Nature by and in herself was founded, In purity the earthen sphere she rounded. In summit and in gorge did pleasure seek, And threaded cliff to cliff and peak to peak; Then did she fashion sloping hills at peace And gently down into the vale release." . . #madeintn #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #visitnc @greatsmokynps @visitgatlinburg #greatsmokymountains #findyourpark #Gatlinburg #Tennessee
Be willing to go the extra mile, to take things slow, and gaze up in awe at the wonders of the world. . . The reward after the most gruelling hike I've ever completed. We had 4 miles to climb 3,000 feet, meaning the entire trail was uphill until the cascades. But when we arrived, the small group at the top was welcoming and the warer the coldest I've felt/tasted. Ramsey Cascades (trail) literally took our breath away. . . #madeintn #Gatlinburg #tennessee @visitgatlinburg @greatsmokynps #findyourpark #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #greatsmokymountains #visitnc
