I don’t do much animal or wildlife photography. But on this autumn day that suddenly changed. The day started with a lack of inspiration, bad lighting, and many dead ends.
As we drove deeper into the Sierras, we turned a corner to head up to Twin Lakes. On our way up, the weather turned moody and we saw this horse from a distance galloping along.
I quickly got out of the car to take this photo (from a distance) with my zoom lens. After taking the photo, I stood for a moment to take it all in.
A day that started rough ended with joy, gratitude, and inspiration. Thanks to this stunning animal.
A stormy helicopter ride above the Rockies in Alberta. When I stare at this picture, it makes me wonder what the first pilots felt like flying over this range. I imagine a pilot in the early half of the 1900s flying over and being amazed at the thought of flying like a bird amongst the clouds staring down at these massive peaks.
Winter ❄️ in LA. Took the 1-hour drive up the mountains of Los Angeles and landed in a winter wonderland. This is one of the many reasons I love living here. The access to scenes like this and so many more places within a day (or less) drive.
Some places just leave you in awe. This place in particular has been on my mind for weeks after my initial visit.
It will be added to the list of places I think of when I meditate and also a place I hope to return to.
We spent nearly 2 hours here swinging into the fresh warm water and swimming with the most unique specifies of fish.
A peaceful moment. I wish I could hang on to them longer. But I guess that's what makes them so special. We spent nearly 3 hours in this cenote. Probably longer than anyone else that passed through. We took in the fresh jungle air, swam, meditated, and met some cool people along the way.
Late afternoon kayaking session in a cenote river. I couldn’t believe the clarity and color of the water. But I was most impressed by mangrove forest hugging/floating on the water as we made our way upstream.
Dreams were made in Mexico this past week. Saw my good friends get married in Tulum and was able to explore gems like this one with my loved ones. I've been DREAMING of seeing this place for years. And the saying is true, pictures don't do it justice. I could spend years adventuring through the Yucatan's hidden gems.
I ruined my lens by taking this shot. Was it worth it? Yes. The lens was switched out under insurance, but the picture is here forever. And although it isn’t the sharpest picture, I think it captures the essence of us swimming in tropical waters during a tropical rainstorm.
