Happy Sunday! Whenever I’m in a crazy basalt amphitheater like this one nerding out on the geology I start to think about how spiritual these places are. I know you guys have felt it like your first time at Abiqua or something. We really need to start a religion that worships and protects these producers of Negative Ions. That’s the type of church I would go to every week. 💦⛪️🙏 #negativeionsociety . . . . #pnwdiscovered #oregonexplored #cascadiaexplored #oregon #pnwisbeautiful #explore #adventure #waterfallsalways #nature #liveoutdoors #upperleftusa #pacificnorthwest #getoutside #pnw #optoutside #sundayfunday #church #longexposure #longexposure_shots #earth_shotz #divine_forest #beautiful #northwestisbest #pnwonderland #pnwcrew #teamcanon #mthood #natgeotravel #jj_oregon

Letting go can be one of the hardest things in the world. But sometimes we have to, to make a stand for ourselves, and know what we deserve.

Day 3 was the most photographed day of the trip. I promise I’ll post from Day 4 tomorrow, but I’ll have to come back to Day 3 a few hundred more times 😬 This is a 25 second exposure of Cobble Beach at Yaquina Head State Recreation Site. I wish you could hear the waves receding across those rounded stones.... . . . . . #oregon #pnw #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #oregonexplored #traveloregon #bestoforegon #optoutside #cascadiaexplored #earthfocus #roadtrip #longexposure #roamtheplanet #wanderlust #longexposure_shots

"...Steadfast, serene, immovable, the same  Year after year, through all the silent night Burns on forevermore that quenchless flame,  Shines on that inextinguishable light! " ... ✒- Longfellow I feel so drawn to lighthouses. Such extraordinary structures, built to withstand the unbridled forces of nature. So necessary for so long. What a sorrowful thing for them to no longer hold their true purpose. I do think some solace can be found in the preservation and history of those that still stand. This beauty is celebrating its 100th year!

Chained to the Past . San Francisco weather has been more Portland than Portland... Seriously, it never stopped raining yesterday! So I went back in the archives and found one of my all-time favorite shots. I tweaked the edit just a bit vs. three years back, but here it is again. It's shots like this that keep bringing me back to this city. . Slide through to see it in wide format, too! . . . #FromUnderTheFedora #pnwonderland #awesomeearth #landscape #pdx #nature #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #moodygrams #earthfocus #watchthisinstagood #pnwisbeautiful #portlandnw #jaw_dropping_shots #ig_captures #visual_awareness #gottalove_a #beautifuldestinations #cascadiaexplored #california #wildcalifornia

Some cloud shadows from Dirty Harry’s Peak. The kind of view that makes you remember how big clouds are, and that they can attack at any time.

One of my favorite waterfalls, treated so badly by some humans. You can see one between the trees in the background. 🤦🏻‍♀️ maybe I should have said more to her, but I was talking to a friend from Cali about how fragile the moss was when she came over. I think she heard, just didn’t care after we moved away. Man I hate people sometimes, ok it’s probably most of the time 🤷🏻‍♀️. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #leavenotrace #leaveitbetter #takeahike #oregonexplored #hikeoregon #respectnature #pnwonderland #pnwisbest #upperleftusa #jj_oregon #cascadiaexplored #intonature #outinoregon #pnwmoods #pnwexplored #pnwadventures #thatoregonlife #radgirlslife #andshesdopetoo #wildernessbabes #herpnwlife #waterfall #pnwwaterfalls

"The Milkyway over Stonehenge" ..... Shooting the milkyway becomes a little easier every time I do it. Shooting it so that I don't hate it is the challenge. As much as I like for my photos to be a single shot it is more important for me to be happy with my photo in the end. This shot is a composition of two shots, one for the sky and one for Stonehenge. As someone told me recently, it is only the photographers that view photos that care about noise, the correct colors, all of the technical stuff that goes with taking photos of the Milky Way. The rest of the people don't really care. Seeing as I only take photos to please me, I am happy now with how this show has turned out. In the end, I am the one who will view this 20 years from now and know if I did the best of my abilities at the time. Needless to say, I am happy with my end results. I hope you like it too. ======= Date: 5-10-19 Time: 1:45 am Camera: Canon 5d Mark III  @canon_photos Lens: Canon 16-24mm F/2.8L II Tri-pod: Manfrotto MK 190XPRO4 Lighting: Yongnuo 600 5500k Led X 3 Filter: none @destination.pnw @washingtonexplored @milkywayshooters @cascadiaexplored @jeff_bell_photos

It's time once again for #FriendFriday. Today I want to talk about a very special person. I met Brittany ( @bleffel ) through Instagram and then we connected in person when I was living in Bend for 3 months in 2018. Brittany inspires me in SO many ways on a daily basis! She is a full-time student, she works full-time and she takes time to advocate for her community at events such as town meetings. What truly inspires me about Brittany is that she is just totally bad-ass and is a true advocate for not only her community, but the environment and nature as a whole. She takes a stance on political issues, she speaks up and puts her voice out there. She takes the time to share what’s currently going on in legislature regarding environmental issues here in the state of Oregon on her Instagram, which I SO appreciate because I wouldn't otherwise necessarily be privy to these things. She has opened my eyes to so many things going on and so many issues that we should all support and help with. Thank you Brittany for being so awesome! It's because of people like you that makes me so excited to live in the Bend community. . . . . #hikeoregon #allaboutadventures #wanderout #adventurelife #hikeon #outdooradventures #hikerlife #pnwisbest #peoplewhohike #oregonhikes #pnwlove #hikingculture #everytrailconnects #exploregon #oregonnw #cascadiaexplored #findyourwild #oregon #traveloregon #herpnwlife #ourpnw #roam247 #killercaptures #hikemoreworryless #adventureenthusiast #pnwdiscovered #destination.pnw Thank you: hike.oregon Your snapshots are magnificent!!

I know I'm biased because it's my beloved home but.. waterfalls in the Gorge are some of the very best. Bold, refined, magical. Have to credit my buddy @7b_kirk for going full-on fearless and amphibious to set the lights for this raging scene.

After seeing over 100 different birds including owlets and a lifer nothing got me more excited than this encounter. It’s a freaking porcupine! I think I might have yelled it out loud when I recognized it but in my mind I said I’m going to stay calm. Before our last day at Malhuer National Wildlife Refuge Jen asked me what else do you want to see before we leave. I jokingly said a badger or porcupine. I need to say more crazy ideas in the future! #photography #nature #wildlife #porcupine #pnw #malheurnationalwildliferefuge #lifermammal #pnwonderland #discoveroregon #photography #teamcanon #cascadiaexplored #oregonexplored
