Happy Valentines Day! I'm so happy I'm celebrating with my beautiful girlfriend @annadouangphachanh who has been my adventure partner for the last 3+ years now. I love her so much for a variety of reasons, but for the purposes of this post, I love her for braving cold temperatures, early mornings, long hikes up and down mountains, and of course cold water (like in this photo - she was freezing!) to help get the shot! I can't wait for more adventures with you in the months and years to come!

β€œSmile, it the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart; brings joy and kindness. And, a kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.” Anthony De’Angelo & Washington Irving 🧑 There was nothing that brought more smiles and joy than exploring the canyons while I was on my tour of Arizona last spring. I was in awe of the different shapes created by the walls of antelope canyon. I particularly love this shot of the heart and the memory of a wonderfully happy day it brings. I enjoy reliving this feeling when I see this photo and I love the smile it brings! 🧑 Happy Valentine’s Day! Hopes it’s full of joy, kindness and lots of smiles! #ExploreArizona #VisitArizona #UnrealAZContest #desert #arizonadesert #westbysouthwest #igsouthwest #naturegramy #shotwithpride #natures_marvels #idhikethatcrew #wondermore #allbeauty_addiction #navajo #navajonation #antelopecanyon #canyon #valentinesday2019 #heartshape #heartsinnature #heartshaped #travelusa #bestnatureshot #bewild #wildme #wildernesstones #agameoftones #hikingheart #alltrails #exploremore

So, after I recalibrated my monitor I have been slowly going through photos to see if they actually look like I want them to look. You can see the before of this image a few posts back, along with the story behind it. . This photo from Ironwood is finally exactly how I want it, and I can say I’m officially done and ready to share it with you all. I have also been able to print this and happy to say it is had become my first successful print of the Milky Way!! 🌌 🌌 #arizonasky #unrealazcontest #netgeotravel #arizonacollective #nightphotography #tucsonaz #tucsonarizona #milkywaygalaxy #milkywaychasers

I feel pretty lucky to have been able to row this ditch twice in 2018. The permit holder on my first trip liked to tell us β€œback on the sticks” anytime she felt we were taking our time more than necessary. We all joked a bit about it. Now I’m counting down the weeks until March when I can get back on the sticks again!

There aren’t many things quite as relaxing as the sound of white water and the glow of these canyon walls.

Hey look, the ledge hole. I just put a link in my bio to a carnage compilation of that rapid visible near the bottom of the frame. Fair warning, you might want the volume off if there are kids around.
