  • Typically I’d avoid a spot like this on a Saturday. It’s a bucket list destination for many photographers and it’s easy to see why. Natural frames, red rock spires, the La Sal Mountains. This place has it all. Not that I don’t like other photographers... y’all are amazing. I just tend to be a little more solitary, sometimes. It’s a totally different experience for me. But with the fresh snow I couldn’t resist finally coming to see this place. The natural contrast of the snow and rock is amazing. Worth the 4:30 wake up call and not feeling my fingers for a good hour or so. Also, definitely the coldest I’ve ever been while making my morning coffee, ha 🙂 @instagram #WHPSplitScreen

  • 2019 has been amazing so far, no doubt. But there have been surprisingly low points, too. Sometimes you swing, sometimes you miss. Happens to all of us. What’s important is that you take the negative energy and reshape it into something positive. That’s something I’ve been learning to do myself, lately. Maintaining and building motivation, especially in this line of work, in this mobile lifestyle I’ve chosen, is crucial. You have to remember to keep your hopes high. Keep your optimism flowing. Believe in the universe. Look at loss in the rear view. Reflect on it, sure. But don’t turn around. The past is the past, but what lies ahead… that’s up to you

  • Currently in my sleeping bag, watching the snow hit my window. Cozy, tired, happy. Will sleep soundly tonight.. always do when the weather’s like this

  • Seen a lot of photos from Yosemite this week. Makes me miss the place. But, really, I was already missing it. Finally watched @freesolofilm last night. Which certainly didn’t cure my attraction. Perhaps it’s a sign. When your heart speaks, listen, as they say..

  • Winter in Canyon Country, a sight I’ve envisioned for a long time now. Been here, in a dream.. still not convinced this wasn’t one, too

  • Well, I bought a drone. First time owning one. Some observations- the image quality is surprisingly good for such a small camera. It’s incredibly nerve-wracking and very fun to fly. The possible angles are totally insane, from a photography standpoint. Wind is scary. And lastly.. I have no idea what I’m doing. Cheers to learning new things, excited for it. @instagram #WHPalwayslearning #WHPUpToMe

  • Change. The ocean is the master of change. Always moving, never the same. Every morning different. Tides, swells, weather, wildlife. The color, the feeling. Always dancing, unpredictable and impulsive. I love it. Increasingly inspired by the coast.. always on my mind, always in my dreams @instagram #WHPChange #WHPUpToMe

  • Love these red rock castles dotting the landscape out here. I like to think, in each one, there lives a grizzled old hawk- maybe a raven. Perhaps I’ll live up there someday.. would be ok with that.

  • Still haven’t been to the Oregon Coast yet on this trip. It’s the most wonderful place. Probably won’t head that way for awhile, but eventually I’ll have to. Been really enjoying slow travel and really taking everything in. Excited to do the same up there- I’ve only spent a couple of days at a time in that area. But until then.... 🐢

  • Layers of the desert, from the red rock spires to the summit of Mount Tukuhnikivatz.. a peak I read about, prior to my arrival. Learning about these places beforehand, visualizing what they must be like, and eventually seeing them with my own eyes- one of my favorite things.
