On this cold and rainy morning I was so close to hitting the snooze button, but when you're waking up in one of the most beautiful national parks, sleeping in isn't an option. Can't believe it's taken me this long to @visitmontana. The mountains and lookouts in Glacier National Park are some of the most beautiful I've ever had the chance to witness, and this sunrise made waking up and rolling out of bed 100% worth it. #montanamoment #sp
A few hundred feet above the ancient city of Petra is where @aaronbhall, @robstrok, and I took a break and enjoyed the morning light before the crowds made their way to the Treasury. After catching a mysterious candlelit glimpse of the city the night before, this lookout was the perfect spot to see one of the New Seven Wonders of the World lit by the sun for the first time. @visitjordan
Never thought when I started taking sunset pics after work on my iphone that years later photography would take me into the deserts of Wadi Rum camping with bedouins and learning about their daily lives. What a wild journey this unpredictable thing called life is. From the deserts of @visitjordan, to the Dead Sea, to the ancient city of Petra, the landscapes across this country change so drastically and provide opportunities to meet people with amazing stories to tell.
The night before the eclipse: We didn't have a plan or place to spend the night. After sunset we stumbled into a campground at midnight, lucked out, and found a vacant spot. The next day we drove into what was supposedly going to be horrific traffic and a crowded gathering of people. Somehow the lake we found was rather quiet and we enjoyed totality with just a few others. Sometimes the most memorable trips are the ones with the least planning.
I wish the moon passed in front of the sun more often because that was a pretty unforgettable experience. From day to night back to day all in a couple minutes. We weren't sure what we were going to get with the haze from the nearby fires but lucked out and got a clear sky. Happy to share this moment with everyone who couldn't make the trip to see it.
