Can you spot the faint glow of a 🌈? 

Taken a couple weeks ago when multiple rainbows hung out around Santa Cruz at sunset. 🌸

Two of my favorite moments from Grand Teton National Park…

A snow-filled landscape, and a fox.

Ever experienced a sunset surf underneath a rainbow? 🌈 

When I say last night’s sunset was one of the coolest sunsets I’ve ever seen… 

I think I counted 4 rainbows across the Santa Cruz sky. I guess a passing storm wanted to show off a bit before it left.✨

Can never get tired of surfing & floral compositions 🌸

Blooms are coming back to the coast and it’s starting to feel spring! Wildflowers are probably my favorite foregrounds to include in photography. I have a feeling the next few weeks will be full of a lot more moments like this shot. 👆

After shooting a few weeks ago at Alabama Hills, I took a look at my archives and found our trip from a few years ago- one of the first times I spent time in the Eastern Sierras as an adult. 

Besides some upgrades to my equipment and fine-tuning of my editing skills, I can clearly see how much my work has progressed in the span of only a few years. I’ve dedicated a lot of time, effort, and passion into this hobby and its honestly one of my greatest joys in life. 

Reminiscing on some of our old road trips and backcountry adventures gets me excited for all the ones to come this year. Backpacking season honestly can’t come quick enough. 🥾

Good Times in the desert with new friends and a GT 🌵

Had an epic time this past weekend exploring Trona Pinnacles with the Onewheel crew. Here are some of my favorite shots from the weekend— 

Between sunset rides around glow cones, late night campfires, some rad new friends, a freakin helicopter and a great location- it’s hard not to have a ton of photos from the long weekend. My gear is still dusty, and I think I’m still pretty dehydrated, but it was a damn good time. 

Shoutout to @austinclaborn for my first helicopter ride. It might only be March, but I know that’ll be a highlight from the year already 🤙
