Anyone remember this shot? It’s been nearly a year since I posted this photo. It’s crazy looking back at how much I’ve learned and how much my editing style has changed and developed this past year. And if you do remember this image, thank you so much for being there with me on my digital media journey and having confidence in my work. It truly means the world!🧡

5 hours of wading through water and river rocks. I regret nothing. By far one of the coolest places I have ever been. #TheNarrows | Zion NP

Sunrise, Mt. Hood Mt. Hood is the highest mountain in Oregon, the US. It’s located about 50 miles (80 km) east of Portland, the capital of Oregon. The U.S.Geological Survey (USGS) characterizes Mt. Hood as “potentially active” volcano, because it is estimated to have 3-7% chance of eruption in the next 30 years. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #oregon #portland #mthood #longexposure #mounthood #oregonexplored #oregonnw #pdx #wilderness #mountain #sunrise #earthshotz #longexpoelite #globalcapture #ig_northamerica #pnwonderland #special_shots #cascadiaexplored #nature_perfection #pnw #pnwlife #ig_world_colors #pnw_moods #westbysouthwest #PNWdiscovered #PNWisbeautiful #PNWparadise #theimaged #ig_unitedstates #jaw_dropping_shots

The hike up to Angels Landing is a mental challenge as much as it is a physical challenge. Some pretty exposed sections with not a lot of walking space continues to push you. But once you get to the top, it’s well worth the 360 views and feeling of accomplishment 🙌🏻 ————— It was also windy in the early morning when we did this, which I’m not sure if that’s normal for here or not 🤷🏻‍♂️, but the higher I hiked up the spine towards the top, the windy it seemed to get. I can handle heights to a degree, but standing on the edge of cliffs or railings makes me nervous, so I wasn’t sure how I would handle this hike. The chains help for security and some peace of mind, but they’re not on every section. I was pretty focused on my footing and where to climb next, which kept me from looking off to the side and psyching myself out lol. Getting to the top wasn’t too bad and it was well worth it! Stunning views and so peaceful. I think coming back down was harder than going up though and you’re kind of forced to look down some of the edges 😬. Anyone wanting to do this hike, I highly recommend getting on the first shuttle because it gets crowded quick!

It never hurts your eyes to look at the bright sight of things..I'm trying to live by that motto for now! . Some of you have asked if I have had my 👁surgery, and I don't want to bore anyone with my tale, but no, I have to wait six more weeks, the eye pressure is still high from all the steroids I had to take for the infection. That really sucks, there goes my fall season. Its been an *annus horribilis* Well, here's one from the B files Have a lovely weekend my friends . . . #nature_perfection #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia_ #earthoutdoors #yosemitenps #westbysouthwest #moods_in_frame #national_park_photography #kings_shots #worldwide_moods #worlds_beautiful_photos #raw_community_member #raw_usa #world_illife

Beautiful destination is the result of a love affair between a wondering traveller and the uncharted road. . P.S. By the time I reached Badland NP, I had already travelled for almost 5 days with an avg of 4-6hrs of sleep in the car 🤪. With cont hiking and driving etc., the physical was getting weary but the excitement of everything going on and upcoming was keeping my spirit top notch. I came to know about the great Badland NP in south Dakota when I visited Bisti badlands in New Mexico few months ago. I never thought I would be traveling this side of the USA in near future. But I kept wondering how a ginormous scale of badlands would look like. They say when you desire something too badly, the universe conspire to have you get it, and I believe in it. As I stood at this view admiring this vast piece of nature's art, I realised that we all need to fall in love with more roads that we haven't travelled.😊🙏

Late Bloomers I’ve been anxious to shoot star trails all summer and finally made it out camping with my camera. It was late August as you can see in my date stamp, but the wildflowers were still in bloom. I was very happy to find columbines, paint brush, and a bunch of other flowers I can’t name. Right after sunset, I set up to capture my foreground. I thought walking up to this patch of columbines would disturb the moth who was resting, but he must’ve been too tired to fly away. He slept on that flower the whole night. The next morning when we retrieved our cameras, he was gone. It’s weird encounters like this that rejuvenate your love for nature, however seemingly small. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ————— Nikon D810 14mm f/2.8-8 1/8-30s ISO 500 August 26 2019 —————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For full resolution photos, my blog, prints and digital downloads, please visit my website: https://www.teelermeeler.com/ (Link in Bio) —————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lighttrails #longexposureart #nightvibes #bestdarkphoto #ColorfulColorado #outtherecolorado #coloradoflower #nightlandscape #Columbineflower #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #milkywaychaser #nightpixels #igworldmilkyway #coloradogram #ColoradoShared #colorado_creative #natureinthesky #longexposureoftheday #nightscapes #longexpohunter #coloradotography #depthsofearth #elitelonexposures #ColoradoShared #coloradogrammers #skywatching #visittelluride #astrophotography #startrailchasers

Lava Tubes, Idaho. Located in Craters of the Moon National Monument, this picture was taken in Indian Caves, one of over 500 caves found in the park. Lava tubes form from low viscosity lava. This always the lava to flow in a stream. These flow start at eruptive vents. Over time cooler hard walls and a roof can form with lava still being transported for miles. These tubes where pretty cool, but the ones in Hawaii are in a class of their own. • • • #lava #lavatubes #cratersofthemoon #nps #nature #photography #nikon #september #travel #geology #idaho #nikond3400 #nikonnofilter #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #earthpix #visitidaho

Took a nice trip to Payson last week. It's nice to go during the week. Less traffic and people. I like to get up here before the temps drop, since I don't do cold weather. I'll be back out here one more time this year when I take some friends to the Tonto Natural Bridge. ✌️ . It's been a year of changes, but the universe has sure shown me that they've been changes for the better. I'm focused solely on myself and my daughter, for now. I'm focused on doing things that I've put off for years. I'm living the life my daughter and I both deserve. I only wish I would've seen the light sooner. Life lessons can be painful lessons. I'm pretty stoked about what lies ahead and I'm very excited to see how the rest of 2019 plays out. 😊 . Be strong enough to let go, but wise enough to wait for what you deserve. 💯 .

"Rain Curtains" Usually reserved for those flying in planes, it was such a unique perspective watching distant rain curtains descend to the ground through rays of sunlight from a 12,633 foot elevation vantage point, the height of Humphreys Peak near Flagstaff, Arizona. I am finding it difficult to imagine a better observation deck to watch the weather in action than at the summit! #ig_arizona #explorearizona #puresw #bnw_oftheworld #westbysouthwest #Arizona #arizonahighwaysmagazine #conquerarizona #sky_collection #visitarizona #arizona_explorers #igsouthwest #igeraz #igsouthwest_bnw #az365 #instagramaz #monsoonaz #ig_stormclouds #azlife #explorearizona_ #sky_brilliance #capturearizona #clouds_of_our_world #sky_sultans #azwx #humphreyspeak #sky_lovers #earth_shotz #cloudpreservation #cloudholic

San Juan Gold Rush You never know what Mother Nature has up her sleeve but it just feels like the colors will be epic this year. Ouray is getting chilly nights and rain in the days. Perfect catalyst to change. The Aspen will feel it. A shot from Gold Hill looking up Camp Bird Valley. U.S. Mountain in the back drop. Captured October of 2018. Headed back up to this location for a different twist. • • • #coloradolive #coloradogram #coloradolove #coloradolife #mountainlife #coloradotography #colorfulcolorado #westbysouthwest #visitcolorado #viewcolorado #ouray #outtherecolorado #keepitwild #telluride #fallcolors #mountainaddict #rockymountains #coloradocameraclub #coloradoliving #mountainlove #coloradoinstagram #coloradical #ilovecolorado

Took a little bit of a break from posting. A little tired of Instagram’s algorithm and how they’re hurting creators. But anyways summer is finally starting to fade away and I am so happy. These past few weeks have been busy and I have more exciting things coming up and new places to see and things to do. But mostly I am excited for winter to come back. The best season of the year. 😍 . . . . . . . #ig_exquisite #fantastic_earth #nature_wizards #landscape_capture #landscape_captures #landscape_hunter #landscape_lover #landscape_lovers #landscape_photography #landscapehunter #landscapelover #landscapelovers #landscapephotography #landscapephotomag #landscapephotos #cascadiaexplored #landscapeslovers   #landscape_specialist #tamronusa #sirui #nationalgeographic   #naturephotography #nature_prefection #ourplanetdaily #tamron #westbysouthwest #nikond750

✨ O C T O B E R ✨ • Have you bought your calendar yet?? Link in my bio... don’t forget... all calendar purchases before 9/30 include a free set of notecards! • Ok, more stories behind the images in my 2020 calendars - we’re all the way to October! • Sunday Stillness. • During its daytime open hours, particularly on a weekend, it can be hard to find a moment of solitude in the Cathedral Basilica - there are almost always people walking through the church, or stopping to sit in a pew for a few minutes. • I’ve made photographs featuring reflections in the baptismal font in the past, but never one that showed the motion of water as it flows through the font. • One Sunday afternoon, I waited until the crowds had died down - though I knew a long exposure would average out any people walking through, I really wanted an empty church for this image, so I couldn’t have anyone sitting in the pews, either. • With just a tiny window of time, as I knew more visitors were walking in behind me, I placed my camera on the font (I often don’t carry a tripod) and made a handful of long exposures - made more difficult by the fact that I was shooting with a very wide (14mm) and fast lens. • Thankfully, some of those shots were good enough to work with. I love the motion of the water, coupled with the reflections of the light streaming into the church, and of course, the view of the sanctuary, too. • Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, #SantaFe , #NewMexico. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. #igersabq #photographyislife #longexposhots #iamnewmexico #churchesoftheworld #visitsantafe #simplysantafe #churchesofinstagram #sonyalphasclub #igsouthwest #purenewmexico #grateful #calendar #nmcielos #nmnomad #igersnm #newmexicotrue #santafeart #bealpha #travelnm #santafenewmexico #artistsoninstagram #potd #catholicchurch #catholiccreatives #church_masters #findbeauty #westbysouthwest

Ghostly twilight fades to black in the shadow of the beast; its belly hungry, growling, consuming forgotten land. Stay a while, it’s about to get wild; fearlessly overtaken with nowhere to run. #roamtheplanet

Death Valley National Park straddles eastern California and Nevada. It’s known for Titus Canyon, with a ghost town and colorful rocks, and Badwater Basin’s salt flats, North America's lowest point. Above, Telescope Peak Trail weaves past pine trees. North of the spiky salt mounds known as the Devil’s Golf Course, rattlesnakes live in Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ #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

Ocotillo and barrel cactus in Palm Canyon at Anza Borrego. Hiked with #sdnhm Canyoneers up to the 1st oasis this morning, but a few of us went on to the 3rd oasis. The fact that there are leaves on the Ocotillo and the spines on the cactus have turned red, show that it has rained recently, as both phenomena occur when there is more water present below.

Perhaps sunsets and sunrises are nature's way to show beauty in balance; when the opposites of night and day are brought in harmony to blanket the land in peace and soothing hues of a distant, omnipresent light. These are glimpses of eternity, ever fleeting, because eternity rolls on, never standing still. Yet these moments give us chance to be still, and know that there is a God. Heaven may pause, but does not dwell on these moments, and neither can we. But their beauty drives us forward, opening and closing the heat of the day, and punctuating the calm of night, marking our cycle of progression. - Picture and poem Copyright Aaron Keller 2016.

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
