Gonna see if this uploads the slowmo shots. Spent the weekend among excellent friends relaxing and camping and sending metal objects downrange at above average speeds. Cheers to the lot of you and to our host that gave us space when our original site didn't pan out as planned. #gooutside #getoutside #camping #getoutdoors #pnw #pnwonderland #trails #washingtonstate #woodland #thisworldexists #thingsdownrange #thisismyboomstick #pewpew #thatpnwlife #northwestisbest #pnwisbeautiful #livenorthwest #upperleft #staywild #thenwadventure #staypnw #keepexploring #forestlife #upperleftusa #photographynature

There's some infinite peace in a tree lined lake 🌲 — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On our last trip to Sechelt, I set my alarm for Sunrise to head out and explore some of our favourite spots while the sun was at a different angle. As fate would have it, this particular morning was dreary & straight up drizzly. I threw on my rain-jacket and headed out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My first stop was a little lake five minutes up the Sunshine Coast highway, one that you'll often see dotted with folks on floating shapes of all different sizes in the summer months, taking in the sun with a brew or two. This morning it was empty, disturbed only by the raindrops that dotted its surface. After a few minutes spent thinking on the lake's edge, I decided to keep driving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I visited a few spots we frequent, and some others we'd yet to explore, and then disappointedly decided to call it a day. The sun was behind a thick puff of clouds, the light (while diffused) seemed harsh, and I needed coffee - the shots just weren't coming easy on this particular morning. Five minutes away from home, I passed by the lake again. This time, it presented differently - the lake's surface, a blade that cut through the roots of the trees surrounding its perimeter. I stopped, took one photo, and this is the result. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've been experimenting with this. On days where I'm shooting for fun, rather than taking 100 photos of the same scene - instead shooting 1 with intention & purpose. This is the first time it's sort of worked out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ◍ ◍ ◍ ◍ ◍ #fujifilm #fujifilm_xseries #vancouver #vancity #beautifulbc #vancitybuzz #hellobc #vancouverisawesome #yvr #vancityhype #britishcolumbia #bc #explorebc #explorecanada #ilovebc #pnwonderland #imagesofcanada #pnwcollective #outsideculture #adventureculture #pnw #campingcollective #thenwadventure #optoutside #greatnorthcollective #thatpnwlife #stayandwander #keepitwild #theoutbound #northwestcreatives

- SILHOUETTE - 🖤 Le silhouette sono fantastiche da usare. Ti permettono di mettere in risalto la forma del soggetto, quando il primo piano non ha molta forza. Fa risaltare al massimo lo sfondo, e permette di creare un senso di mistero. Sono molto facili da fare, bisogina esporre l'immagine per la luce dello sfondo. È importante che lo sfondo sia più luminoso del primo piano. - - @nikonitalia - #silhouette #tutorial #lezioni #nature #landscapephotomag #landscapephotography #landscapemaintenance #landscape #landscaping #ig_color #people #nature_photo #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nature_brilliance #nikonitalia #silhouettes #thenwadventure #describe #description #main_vision #lake #nationalgeographic #awesome_photographers #awesome_earthpix #global_hotshotz #travelphotography #photoshoptutorial #earthmagazine #world_photo

Photo set 2 of the VetEx Mt Hood climb. As I mentioned in yesterdays post, much of the night and early morning hours were spent in a whiteout from the freezing fog, rain, and snow. People tend to either love or hate being in these conditions, with some losing morale due to the zero visibility while others enter a sort of blind autopilot mode with the rhythmic almost robotic procession of moving one foot in front of the other. Step, step, breathe, step, step, breathe... Where do you stand on these conditions? 📸Shot info: | @SonyAlpha A7RII w/Sony 16-35mm F4| |ISO400, 16mm, F4, 1/60s|

Back from vacation and we’re ready to hike! I’m backpacking in the enchantments at the beginning of June (no pups allowed so unfortunately Ash can’t come 😭) but we’re still trying to squeeze in as many trails as possible before then! This is definitely our favorite time of the year🌲🏔

Monday’s can be hit or miss, but today we’re feelin’ good! It’s going to be a busy week but a fun one. Tonight I’m heading to New York City for a couple days for work (a rare opportunity!). Then as soon as I’m back in Washington, Spence will have Marty and the van packed up and ready to go to head out for our Memorial Day Weekend adventure. On top of this, #vanfest registration opens up on Wednesday and #descendonbend is 101 days away!! Let the summer festivities officially begin😎

Growing up I wasn't a big fan of camping. It seems like it was always crazy hot, or it rained - soaking both the tent, and me inside. It's hard to believe that, prior to this recovery weekend, I had spent 3 of the last 4 weekends tent camping in a diverse grouping of Washington locations. Most recently, as part of a 1 night pack packing trip to inner Olympic National Park, and the Enchanted Valley. With a bear canister required, I opted to bring a 2 person MSR tent instead if the standard 3 person Marmot. While the weight isnt a lot different, the MSR packs down smaller. I was originally worried it would feel crowded, but I have to say, it was comfortable and didnt feel that much different than the 3p. With the number of bears in the area (we unfortunately didnt see any, though it seems everyone else did), a ranger greeted us just as we arrived in the chalet area, after a 14 or 15 mile hike in. The direction was that fires are allowed, as long as an existing fire ring was used. Since we got there late, most of the spots near the trail were already taken, which forced us to spend a bit more time looking. It ended up being a blessing, and we found this spot, spacious and completely out of view of the main trail. Firewood was a challenge to find though, and I ended up lugging back a huge piece from the riverbed, but wasnt successful in breaking it down further, so ended up burning the full thing. All in all it was a great trip, and I wanted to stay another night. It wasnt crazy hit, it didnt rain, and the mountain views and solitude were great. . . . . . #wanderwashington #washingtontrails #wanderlust #optoutside #getoutside #neverstopexploring #theNWadventure #pacificnorthwest #pnwlife #PNWonderland #upperleftusa #greatoutdoors #exploremore #wildernessculture #PNWdiscovered #cascadiaexplored #findyourpark #roamtheplanet #northwestisbest #depthsofearth #wildvisuals #hikingculture #pnwadventures #olympicnationalpark #findyourpark #enchantedvalley #quinaultrainforest #backpacking #hikeolympic

One of the benefits of hiking with my teenagers is extra hands to help the littles across tricky spots. . We visited Twin Falls in Snoqualmie and it was BUSY! We spent most of our time lounging by the river. Review coming soon!

#Repost 📷 @zakstonephotography ・・・ #natgeoguidelineschallenge - I shot this photo last June. Hadn’t edited it until last night. If you swipe to the right you will see the RAW unedited photo and my Lightroom only edit. How was @gameofthrones last night for everyone? I was happy and a little let down. But still all 8 seasons, what an amazing story. Fantastic work writing, filming and acting. Can’t wait to see the spinoffs. Happy Monday! - If you didn’t know @natgeo posted an article online with some photos of the Milky Way that were clearly photoshopped. It raised some heads in the photo world. With so much digital assistance with photos it’s hard to tell what’s a real single photo and what’s been blended, stacked, composited or anything done to change the photo other than just simple edits. - - All photos are available for purchase.

Coming soon - we've got a new design and this time it's personal! Nature can be a healer, a refuge, a respite. There is no judgment. In these challenging times with so much uncertainty and negativity, there is a place where politics and agenda mean nothing, where race, gender, financial status are invisible. You needn't go far, and you don't need to go alone - just step out to where the gray meets the green, and listen to the whisper in the wind: Have courage, my friend. (You can find out more about our story at our website - link in bio). • We take our commitment to sustainability seriously, and are always challenging ourselves to be proactive and part of the solution. We have always been committed to 100% eco-friendly products and practices, but even that doesn't feel like enough. The apparel industry is resource heavy, and the most responsible path forward in our minds, is clothing made of 100% recycled materials so that virgin products are not created. To that end, we will be transitioning into clothing made from recycled cotton and recycled plastic (which we've used quite a lot). There are many different ways to be eco-friendly, but for us, a circular economy just feels right. Stay tuned!

Volcanic locations are always off the beaten path and often make you feel like you’re on another planet. If you’ve never been to one I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed🌋 Location: Jordan Craters volcanic field, the youngest of a series of large quaternary basalt fields in the eastern part of Oregon, several miles northwest of Jordan Valley.
