First time shooting from here. Long exposures are tough because the bridge actually shakes when big trucks go under! Was hoping for more of a sunset but still turned out pretty good, I think.

November Nights

A favorable forecast coincided with my days off this week so I headed out to the coast for some late fall star gazing.

The sound track for this night sky scene was the rhythm of ocean waves punctuated by the occasional barking sea lion.

It was cold over night but it never got windy so this night out on the wild coast of Olympic National Park was about as good as it could get for late November! ✨✴️✨

What are you passionate about, and why?
We all have such different motivations behind the things we pursue, and I’m curious. What is it that drives you towards your goals?

Did you guys know that @travelinjshots used to work at Yellowstone?! Well, he did!
Anyways, I'm mainly just curious to see if he can identify this neat little pot because I haven't the slightest clue as to which one it is.
Anyone else able to identify this beautiful landscape?

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

Hiking off trail is no easy feat, especially with the bumps, bruises, embedded thorns, and the full body aches afterwards, but aside from those temporary physical ailments, the silence and virginity of the forest, the sound of rushing water, and the challenge to get there is too inviting not to make another attempt.

Black Friday is coming up! Is anyone else going to #optoutside? 
My wife and I visited Yosemite in 2014 on Black Friday. It was the first time we had been to a National Park. Since then we have been to 14 National Parks and looking forward to see many more!

I sat here alone for most of the morning. It was the end of summer and I was driving back home to Seattle after a few months of living on the road. I took the scenic route up Highway 1 through the giant redwoods of California and ended up on the Oregon coast for the night. I hiked down in the dark and sat in the dirt waiting to watch the sunrise. There were no spectacular colors or crazy light, but I was so happy to end my trip in such a beautiful place. .

This is from July of this year.  I went on a one night, solo backpack up on Mt. Hood.  The weather was perfect and the place where I set-up camp was quiet and serene.  I enjoyed exploring the area, listening to the sounds of nature and taking in the views.  There was still an abundance of Indian Paintbrush plants carpeting the trails with their bright, red flowers.  That evening the wind howled on the mountain.  My newly purchased tent withstood the strong gusts, but the noise kept me up for hours.  I didn’t sleep much that night.  However, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

It was our creative Father who gave us our imaginations; the visions we tell in story are often prophetic glimpses into his wondrous realms, and his creative majesty will certainly do ours one better in the world to come... What will _waterfalls_ be like in the new earth? ~ John Eldredge, All Things New

Living to walk forest and mountain paths...here a swift sunrise on Skyline Divide from this July… "Still round the corner there may wait a new road or secret gate and though I oft have passed them by a day will come at last when I shall take the hidden paths that run West of the Moon , East of the Sun" JRR Tolkien . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #upperleftusa #pnw #upperleft #pnwonderland #northcascades #pnwonderland #pnwparadise #thatpnwlife #pnwdiscovered #pnwexplored #pnwanderer #explorewashington #thatpwnlife #livewashington #pnwadventurers #pnwisbeautiful #northwestexplored #naturalwashington #northcascades #upperleft #cascadiaexplored #thenwadventure #washingtontrails #hikewashington #ourpnw #landscapelovers #landscape lovers #landscapehunter #landscapestyles gf #landscape captures

There’s a question on one of the online dating sites that asks “Mountains” or “Beach”. And It’s proven invaluable for weeding out the crazies 🤪
