Humpback whale pectoral fins are incredible. They're what gave humpbacks their Latin name, Megaptera Novaeangliae, meaning "Big Winged New Englander". Each pectoral fin, up to 5 metres in length, holds barnacles. These hitch a ride along, feeding as the humpback travels. They also add a razor sharp edge to the fin, improving the humpback's defences. A single blow from a humpback could kill a killer whale, a juvenile humpbacks's biggest predator. They are also fronted by those bumps, or tubercles. Despite looking like they would slow the animal down, they are a huge benefit. They increase lift, reduce drag and generally improve the motion of the flipper. They're so efficient that the structures have been replicated in modern technology. Designs of items like wind turbine blades, plane wings or boat rudders have incorporated the tubercles to improve performance.

When I hit the backroads, I often think about what life could be like in a more rural setting. One where yours is the only mailbox along the road for miles. One where you trade an active social life for nature’s beauty and open land. Is there such a place where you can easily have both? ✨

It doesn’t matter what time of the night it is, there are always vehicles on the move here. Bellevue Seattle so lit 🔥🧡 . . P.S: Don’t forget to watch the dramatic clouds moving and making the time lapse look so beautiful.

“Starry, starry night, paint your palette blue and grey. Look out on a winter's day. With eyes that know the darkness in my soul. Shadows on the hills, sketch the trees. Catch the breeze and the winter chills. In colors on the snowy linen land. Now I understand, colors changing hue. Morning fields of amber grain. Weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand. The silver thorn of the bloody rose, lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.” Track. Vincent Artist.

The definition of a runner is someone who is running...I know a little simple. But regardless of the simple and clear definition so many people wont call themselves runners. They think they are too slow, they like to walk/run, their body doesn’t look like a runners and the list goes on. But I think it’s as simple as the definition. Anyone and everyone can be a runner! Are you a runner? Do you have any runners in your family? I’m runner (a slow and lazy runner) and I made a list if all the essentials things you should gift the runner in your life!

There are times when we all feel the need to just be away for a while. Go on an adventure and to disconnect from the world. I needed this trip more than anything, to rekindle my creativity and to be out in nature again. It’s hard to be so unique nowadays but i’ve learned the best way is to just be you in your own way 🌊 In Frame: @alexafavorrr

We woke up at 5:30am, hiked more than 16km, over 5 hours just to spend a single hour up there; While 40 years ago some lucky guy was getting paid a decent wage to spend WEEKS up there at a time.

We laughed, we did photos, and we saw a seal....in #lakeoswego in the Willamette River.....A SEAL! Come to find out, after my very wonderful animal research specialist (my wife) checked it out, seals can live in fresh water😮 • • Thank you @emnem12 and @manny.ay for the great time with you and Taylor! It was such a blessing to be up at our old stomping grounds to spend this time with you, hopefully we can get together again soon!!

My baby is 11 years old today. How did time go by so quickly? Isabella loves baking, plays, books, travel, crafts 💕 — and she’s sweet, smart, and loves to be helpful. (Just don’t ask her to clean her room. 🙄) This transition between little kid and teenager (Tween years) isn’t always easy, but I’m very glad she’s mine! Happy Birthday Isabella Bryanne 🎉!

I’m starting to think of goals for 2019 and a new motto for the following year. Things I want to accomplish personally, professionally, and spiritually. Not necessarily in that order. This year my motto has been #doyou I think for the most part I did things that honored my spirit, and said no to certain things I no longer wanted to do, (which I’m still working on) I look forward to the new year. I’m not one for resolutions, but I think I like the idea that I’m a, “work in progress” kind of girl. . . . . . #beautifuldestinations #feelfreefeed #darlingescapes #forgeyourownpath #girlsborntotravel #travelgram #lovetotravel #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #womanwhoexplore #PNWisbeautiful #wearetravelgirls #femmetravel #nomadgirls #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #wintervibes #wanderwashington #nrthwest #thepnwlife #optoutside #gotsnow #waterunderthebridge

I've always found it fascinating how visually unique any given location can be depending on the time of day and time of year you see it. Sometimes you plan ahead to make sure you arrive to catch that perfect light. And other times you just head out whenever you feel like it and are lucky enough to bear witness to the fleeting beauty of the moment. This was one of those days, taken around 2 pm half way across the suspension bridge looking to the left. It was like the forest was still in the process of waking up as the sun had finally freed itself from the clouds. And now free to shine, it slowly began to radiate its warmth onto every branch, lifting the lingering frost into the air, giving us a truly magical snapshot in time. . . . . . #pacificnorthwest #pnw #pnwonderland #explore #rei1440project #hikingadventure #greatoutdoors #optoutside #wander #wanderlust #thatpnwlife #pnwdiscovered #thenwadventure #cascadiaexplored #thegreatpnw #bestofnorthwest #pnwbc #pnwisbeautiful #awakethesoul #roamtheplanet #upperleftusa #canon #teamcanon #pnwcollective #earthpix #vancouver #vancouverbc #vancouvercanada #canada #capilanosuspensionbridge

Despite the fact that they constantly make me feel inferior, from the Ivey league degrees, to the rock climbing gym, and your Ron burgundy-esque stache game, nothing but love for the brothers. How many people do you know who can go from debating bathroom humor to political theory in seconds?! Pretty amazing stuff. Thankfully, I still have them at the important things, like Scattergories, Wii Golf, and running longer than any normal human would ever choose to do. Maybe one day you’ll catch me. (dad jokes too?? 🤦🏼‍♂️)

If I were to host a "go somewhere new I haven't been in the NW" giveaway would you participate? The winner would get a choice of one original artwork or photograph plus a story shoutout and oodles of prestige, and would have to go somewhere I personally haven't been on a weekend I will pick at a future date based on good weather.

I’m dealing with THE WORST JET LAG since coming home oh my gosh. My body still has no clue what continent I’m on. But it worked in my favor today because we switched this couples shoot to a sunrise session to avoid rain and omg the fog was AHMAZINGGG. So fun to meet these two cuties from Java! I’m dying to go to Indonesia after spending the morning with them! I love getting to share the beauty of Oregon with so many cool people from all over the world. 😊 #columbiarivergorge #katyweaverphotography #foggyvibes #moodyvibes #pnwphotographer #couplesphotographer #portlandweddingphotographer #pnwisbeautiful #lookslikefilmweddings #adventureengagement #forestwedding

“When someone asks me why I cry so often, I say ‘for the same reason that I laugh so often...because I’m paying attention.’” - Melton I used to keep myself from crying - in public and in private. This included happy tears, sad tears and angry tears too. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve cried in public, why I was doing it and who was a witness. Crying was/is a weakness to me. People will think that I’m vulnerable, too soft, too emotional - that I am not strong enough. I decided at a young age that I wasn’t going to be those things. Instead, I choose to laugh or altogether avoid the things that weigh too much. This has worked longer than I expected, but only because of how hard I have fought to keep it around. This battle is still happening and I still fight - but I have grown tired. I am still in the act of holding back tears based on who is in the room, because of definitions that I formed as a child. But I’m working on it. I have always fallen for men who are softer than me, I am jealous of my expressive friends and I am consistently asking others to let me into their most private feelings - yet I live in a constant whirlwind of emotions that I don’t know how to show. I’ve recently been chipping away at the dams that I’ve built - and I’m finding that tears aren’t only for sad times but also for the greatest and most positive moments. I used to save my tears for the hate I have for my body, my traumas, my bad days and my too hard to handle life lessons. But now, it just takes a sunset, a well placed wildflower, a deep breath, a scripted one liner, stories from strangers or a look across the room from Craig - and I’m a puddle. And if we’re being honest, MasterChef Junior gets me every time lol. My greatest lesson in life has been to “be present”. By grounding myself to the Now - I feel everything. I can’t help but get teary eyed when I see all that I have, what I have lost, who I am in love with and who I have love for. I am not weak because of my tears, I am supposed to be sensitive towards myself and others, and I am as soft I decide to be. I am stronger because of my vulnerabilities - and so are you.
