The weather at #GrandCanyon #NationalPark in #Arizona can be as varied as the landscape. Dramatic elevation changes influence air temperature and circulation. Incredible heat is common at the canyon floor in the summer and unexpected thunderstorms can pop up quickly. With such sweeping vistas, storm watching can be a thrilling experience.

While my work these days focuses on conservation and natural history, I started my career in photography shooting kayaking and other outdoor sports. This is a shot from several years ago of Brandon Wells running 100 ft tall Abiqua Falls in Oregon. This was just a few months after our friend @tylerbradt broke his back running this drop with a lot less water. Both Brendan and his brother @toddwellskayak sent it on this day, and they both had pretty sweet lines. Todd ended up getting a little worked on the landing, but came out of it unscathed with a little help from his brother. Brendan and I are working together on a couple projects in China right now, but we are both desperately missing some river running every day, especially as we drive by some great looking rivers swollen with snowmelt and monsoon run-off!

To this day the Upper Missouri Wild and Scenic River in Montana remains relatively unchanged, and its settings vary from riparian vegetation, to the unique and beautiful “White Cliffs”, to the sharply carved and rugged “Badlands”, to the rolling, pine and juniper covered slopes of the “Breaks”. Though the Upper Missouri lacks the stimulating whitewater runs much sought after by thrill seekers it more than makes up for the river runners “fix” with its mesmerizing glimpse of the American west as it once was. For the family who plays together, the Upper Missouri caters to boaters of all degrees, from the beginning novice to the expert paddler to the leisurely motor boat aficionado. Visitors embark into a capacious river corridor that seemingly swallows even the largest groups and are treated to a remoteness not often found in the 21st Century. Optimum periods for boating are May through September with fishing and hunting use replacing leisure boating during the shoulder seasons. With 149 miles of river and several public launch points to choose from, trip lengths may vary from one day to ten days or more.

Well it's been fun Slovenia, but it's time to spend the next 24 hours traveling home to Seattle.
It's been an amazing week of exploring as much of this beautiful country as I could.
I still feel like there is so much more to see though! Hopefully it's not too long before I find myself back here 😊🇸🇮 -
This spot was one of my favorite views in Triglav National Park. As storm clouds rolled above the peaks, a beam of light perfectly shown down on the cabin in the valley. The light on the cabin lasted only seconds but luckily I was already set up to grab this shot.
The marine life over here is in @westernaustralia is second to none. This last month I have been able to interact and photograph so many amazing experiences. I still have so much to share from my recent shark encounter and I appreciate your patience. This beautiful whale shark was photographed at Ningaloo Reef out of Exmouth. @aquatech_imagingsolutions
Kilo's having a meltdown because I drained the pool to put some fresh water in and now the pool steps are too far down and scary. Roofus and P don't seem to understand that they are actually not hippos as most swimming today is taking place under the water. Kilo has an itch, probably from running through the bushes earlier when he took off after a deer... 😠, and Moo just got into the newly cleaned pool head to toe coated in dirt and the water is gross again. Rosie is perfect, Lucky won't stop panting in my face, and Dooders pooped on the bathroom floor (at least she was close). Also, Moo busted the chickens free this morning sneaking into their coop and stealing their food. So at 7 am I was running around in my pj's, chasing chickens and avoiding the rooster (Nugget). Just another day in the land of the misfits 😣 #rescuefamily #misfitassistantneeded
The Hood Show
Alright, here’s my first edit from the 4th of July party overlooking the city residents who put on a firework show for us. I snapped this series during the twilight hours to easily retain a bit of foreground details and keep from blowing out the skyline lights. If you saw my stories, you can see I blended several shots using the “lighten” blend mode in photoshop to get all the fireworks as well as some solid car trails. There weren’t many going off over the neighborhood closest to us but the few that did helped add to the composition. I shot this one straight on to get a direct line of sight down the freeway. The lights on the new Wilshire Grand were a nice touch. I have other comps as the city shows went off….maybe I’ll use them to do a timelapse…who knows :) Shot with the Nikon D750 and Nikkor 70-200.

"We came in peace for all mankind."
Talk about a #TBT that's out of this world! 48 years ago today humanity first landed on the moon. Neil Armstrong took his one small step at 10:56 p.m. ET on July 20, 1969.

Happy Friday everyone. I’m still off on baby bonding time, fortunate enough to be able to take the time off work to spend with my daughter and squeeze in some shooting time. She also just turned 1month. Remember the monthly shots we did for Cole? We will be doing the same for Mia so stay tuned for a few shots of her. Finalized 3 prints this month as well. 2 canvas and 1 metal. One of the canvas prints was a huge 3-piece split 60 x 90 of downtown Los Angeles, the biggest print I’ve fulfilled to date. I’ll see if I can share a snap of that down the road. Make it a great start to your weekend.
