“If you want to learn what someone fears of losing, watch what they photograph.” . . First time visiting this cave. It was late afternoon when I arrived and I couldn’t believe I had this place all for myself. I stayed there for an hour, enjoyed the view, and was hoping for someone to come so I can ask them to be my subject but nobody did. lol Thanks to the people who didn’t hesitate on sharing this location to me.

I went a place last weekend and I had fun and stuff oh and took some pictures. The White Sands National Monument was a lot bigger than I expected. There were a lot of people there but walk just over a dune and you felt like you were completely alone. The sound was like a recording studio in between dunes and at the bottom. Maybe that isn’t normal but was definitely noticeable to me. It’s 225 square miles (583 square km) but the dunes looked like they went all the way to the mountains in all directions!

Sometimes I find myself going back to certain locations again and again if I wasn't happy with how my first set of photos came out. This is one such place. I've visited here 3 times for a sunrise now and I think I've finally snagged an image that I'm proud of from it. Sometimes there's too many cloud and sometimes there's not enough. To me it's just a numbers game. The more I'm outside taking photos, the more likely it becomes I'll create an image I'm proud of.

I had such an amazing time in Canada, but I don’t want you all to think I don’t like the USA 🇺🇸. Here is one of my favorite spots ever in America. I’ve actually got plenty of content to share from Canada and the USA and am trying as hard as I can to transition to full time travel. Thanks again to @katrinasjphotos for purchasing a recent print, and also shouting about it in her story. That kindness does not go unnoticed. I hope you enjoy the print, and every little bit helps me to reach my goal so I can keep sharing all of this to you all. If you want this print or others just click the link in my bio. What’s your favorite fall spot, it’s that time of year again? 🍁 @cultureofcreatives @trekkingtoes @totem_made @earth_shotz @moods_in_frame

Have you ever gone somewhere just to want to go back and explore? An adventure to plan another adventure! Loved the drive my wife and I took through Cathedral Valley! But it just gave me ideas to go back for.

HELP! I CANNOT STOP DOING THIS ONE THING... . And that is creating. I can’t stop creating. I see creative opportunities EVERYWHERE and I don’t know how to turn it off. At this moment, I am the photographer. However I did not pull a witch trick and took the picture while I also stood there and I also did not photoshop myself in. I saw a moment and I needed to see it out. . In our little family life, Finn is the main character here. So we are always taking photos of him and his puppy accomplishments. When we travel, that’s the only time we really get to spend time together. Our work schedules are different so every moment we spend together it’s enjoyed thoroughly. And of course as a photographer it’s important to me to capture creative images. It makes my creative soul happy. . So here at this moment we just finished a 5 mile hike and when we looked back Half Dome looked so beautiful. So we sat on this field and just stared out at this grand beauty that is Yosemite. We shared a water bottle, we took deep breaths, we smiled at each other and I didn’t want that moment to end. . So I pulled out the tripod, my @sonyalpha A7iii, my 24 mm lens, the portable shutter release and took this photo. I tried a few test shots with Evan on focus and when it was perfect I walked over and pressed the shutter release. This was actually a horizontal frame which you’ll see on the second photo but I wanted to also show a close up.

✨ J A N U A R Y ✨ • Time for the stories behind the images in my landscape calendar!(Because one calendar isn’t enough, you know.) Hit up the link in my bio and get yours before they disappear. • Winter Morning in Los Cerrillos. • A massive snowstorm rolled through NM the evening before I photographed this scene. Knowing there would be nice fresh snow for snowshoeing, we headed out “stupid early” (i.e., before sunrise) for Cerrillos Hills State Park - because morning light is awesome for photographs, and morning snowshoeing is great, too, right? • Great until you realize it’s THREE DEGREES OUTSIDE! • One of the coldest NM mornings I’ve ever been out in... as we reached the turn for Cerrillos, the early sun was glowing behind the clouds, with that perfect snow on the ground, and I got out of the car to shoot this image. • And oh, was it cold. Three degrees. Oh, and we did make it to Cerrillos Hills and for a nice, and very cold, morning of snowshoeing. • Los Cerrillos, #NewMexico. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. #igersabq #photographyislife #iamnewmexico #snowday #winteriscoming #coldmorning #simplysantafe #visualambassadors #naturalworld #featurenewmexico #calendar #ipulledoverforthis #nmcielos #cloudymorning #igersnm #moodygrams #newmexicotrue #bealpha #travelnm #potd #nmnomad #lifeincolor #nature_perfection #explorecreateshare #placestovisit #amazingearth #landscapephotography #lightlandmag #westbysouthwest

Zabriskie Point is a part of the Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley in Death Valley National Park in California, United States, noted for its erosional landscape. It is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago—long before Death Valley came into existence. ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ #ournaturedays #folktravel #staywander #hikevibes #takemoreadventures #forgeyourownpath #visualofearth #wildernessnation #ventureout #outsideculture #liveadventurously #roamearth #wanderout #modernwild #earthoutdoors #exploreourearth #roadtrippers #adventureanywhere #globewanderer #nationalparkgeek #westbysouthwest #woodlandville #npfans #deathvalleynationalpark #national_park_photography #parkroamers #divine_deserts #splendid_outskirts #be_one_natura #USA_naturehippys

Ask a Fish Head Anything You Want To, They Won't Answer, They Can't Talk (9178) ~~~~~ I went out to the desert with other members of The Mercury Seven, an experimental atmospheric improvisational music group that I play music with, creating videos around Trona and Trona Pinnacles in the Mojave Desert in California. After they left, I stayed behind. After all, I am a night photographer, and the area is night photography heaven. ~~~~~ For several years, I had driven past Fish Rocks. I remembered approximately where it was, but never exactly. And now, I wanted to find it in the dark. I have no idea how, but after driving back and forth a couple of times, I managed to catch a glimpse of it. ~~~~~ “Originally they were called Whale Heads,” explains Margaret Brush, a member of the Searles Valley Historical Society (SVHS).“They date back to 1928. They did not always have teeth, like they do today.” At one point, people painted over the graffiti art to cover it. Two people re-painted the fish faces. They have been there since that time. ~~~~~ This night photo shows the movement of the stars over a long period of time created by the movement of the earth. All of the illumination was done with a hand-held ProtoMachines light painting device during the exposure, and is not a post-processing creation. No pixels were harmed in the creation of this photo. ======== IG, Facebook, 500px, Flickr: kenleephotography ======== Info: Nikon D610, Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8. 2015-12-24 02:39 51 min total "stacked"; each individual photo 3 min f/8 ISO 200. ======== #kenlee #kenleephotography #lightpainting #longexposure #nightphotography #slowshutter #amazing_longexpo #longexphunter #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #supreme_nightshots #ig_astrophotography #super_photolongexpo #nightscaper #MyRRS #ReallyRightStuff #feisol #Nikon #westbysouthwest #travelzoo #desert #trona

Good morning from Colorado! @MattPaynePhoto here for this week's Instagram takeover. I'm sharing some of my favorite Colorado fall color photography with you. This happen to be one of the most magical scenes I've ever photographed - the colors were perfect and the sunset lasted forever. Only in Colorado! This was taken near McClure Pass between Carbondale and Paonia. ⁠ ⁠ #mothernature #naturelovers #nature #instanature #naturephotography #travel #hiking #lifestyle #explore #adventure #choosemountains #coloradoactivities #coloradotography #livewild #yourco #colorado #viewcolorado #naturalcolorado #colorfulcolorado #coloradolife #coloradolove #westbysouthwest #puresw #rockymountains #coloradogram

Dyptich part 2 of 2. Check profile for part 1, or swipe. It's hard not to shoot panoramas at the Grand Canyon. So much scenery in every direction! Yet the scenery is made up of individual rocks and trees, which on their own are nice, but don't compare to the bigger picture. Remember to step back and see the bigger picture of your own life. Just remember to appreciate the individual rocks and trees that you pass along the way. #EscalanteRidge #ImportedFromWisdom . . . . #MindfulWandering #SpiritoftheWest #weliveelevated #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #goatworthy #hike #divine_deserts #mountainhardwear #arizonahiking #explorearizona #wilderness #wanderfolk #travelers #adventurer #naturegram #createyourtrail #getoutside #liveoutdoors #unrulydreamers #arizona #desertlife #MoveOutsideTheExpected #igutah #recreationgov #utahgram #npfans

Part 1 of 2. Check profile to see the other half! You can never truly appreciate the beauty of a spring until you learn to give freely and expect nothing in return. As you share, you replenish the life of others and add to your own life. It also helps to drink lots of water. Here at Big Spring in the Zion Narrows, you don't even need a filter as the water pours straight out of a natural aquifer in the Navajo Sandstone. #ImportedFromWisdom #EscalanteRidge . . . . #werutah #utahunique #utahisrad #createyourtrail #goatworthy #weliveelevated #utahgram #igsouthwest #hiker #igutah #gooutdoors #packforlife #divine_deserts #westbysouthwest #wowutah #gooutside #wanderfolk #travelpic #utahillustrated #xputah #adventurer #nps #nationalparkgeek #utah #wilderness #exploring #zionnationalpark #findyourpark

Since the Earth never stops moving, adventure never ends. This fault line in Box Canyon is the weak point that became the source of the cave I was standing in, and can be seen directly across the canyon. When water carves a canyon, it follows the path of least resistance, which is often along existing fault lines. Just as water shapes weakened landscapes through its strength, we are shaped when we use our strength to work on our own weaknesses. It is the combination of the two that produces growth. #ImportedFromWisdom #EscalanteRidge . . . . #MindfulWandering #SpiritoftheWest #utah #werutah #goatworthy #utahunique #utahillustrated #utahisrad #utahgram #alltrails #xputah #igutah #hiker #wowutah #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #gooutside #explorer #weliveelevated #divine_deserts #travelers #xputah #nationalparkgeek #gooutdoors #adventurliving #wandering

Journal! Do you keep a journal? Writing in a journal on a regular basis helps with planning, ideation, personal development, mental health, and numerous other things. Albert Einstein's journal shows the development of his theories over time and how he learned to challenge his own assumptions and barriers, and those of his fellow scientists. Whether your journal is kept in stone or online, it documents your own story and becomes part of history. There is no right or wrong way; the trick is that you do it. But don't deface historic sites in the process. #EscalanteRidge #MindfulWandering #ImportedFromWisdom . . . . #SpiritoftheWest #utah #wilderness #weRutah #hiker #wowutah #utahunique #utahisrad #divine_deserts #utahgram #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #igutah #utahillustrated #wanderfolk #goexplore #goatworthy #sharetheexperience #wanderer #travelpic #abandoned #abandoned_places #xputah #ruins #urbexworld #gooutside #ancientart

This ocotillo bush has learned to thrive in the constraints of limited water in the desert. How, you ask? The ocotillo only puts out leaves when there is sufficient water present, usually within a few hours of rainfall. It then sheds its leaves when that ground water dries up; the leaves lasting no more than a couple days at times to limit water loss through evapotranspiration. Mother Nature has learned how to maximize growth in any situation, given any constraint. How will you maximize growth in your surroundings? #MindfulWandering #ImportedFromWisdom . . . . #EscalanteRidge #sandiego #southwestern #desertlife #SD #hikes #adventurer #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #explorer #sandiegohiking #gooutside #sandiegoliving #wandering #travelpic #hiker #goatworthy #optoutside #divine_deserts #gooutdoors #hikingday #discover_earth #rawcalifornia #weliveelevated #livetoexplore #wilderness #botany #adventurers @anzaborregoresearch

Your efforts to build something of value can last a lifetime and sometimes longer. Square Tower in Hovenweep National Monument has lasted almost 800 years. Build on a strong foundation though so your efforts don't topple over. Timeless principles are the foundation for a successful life and organization. Principles like humility allow one to receive further knowledge to move forward, because "Humility facilitates the flow of information." -Dr. Chris Fawson #EscalanteRidge #ImportedFromWisdom . . . . #MindfulWandering #ruins #wanderer #utahillustrated #viaadventure #igsouthwest #utahgram #weRutah #weliveelevated #utah #youtah #hikingday #utahunique #travelpics #beUtahful #utahisrad #bestofthebest #visitutah #urbexworld #ancient #lostworld #abandoned #westbysouthwest #explorer #optoutside #naturalutah #wowutah @shingoprize #wandering

Look at the color! The colorful layers that make up the Painted Desert are the result of volcanic ash that interacted with existing material. This is part of the larger Chinle formation that was deposited during the Triassic Period 225 mya, and covers wide swaths of northern Arizona outside of the Grand Canyon. . . . #EscalanteRidge #MindfulWandering #SouloftheWild #painteddesert #petrifiedforest #arizona #geology #nps #westbysouthwest #geography #adventurer #goatworthy #arizonahiking #scenic #igsouthwest #nationalparkgeek #createyourtrail #optoutside #divine_deserts #gooutside #travelers #desert #earthscience #liveyouradventure #wanderer #liveoutdoors #goexplore #hiker
