Life can run away with us, but it’s important to press “pause” and take a breather every so often. And this time of year, autumn colors provide the perfect excuse.
Happy new week to you all!
I’ve been talking about it for a bit, but this week, I finally followed through on the “two-five” (TWO5) idea. This week, I posted two new photos to Instagram and five new photos to 500px. I am also trying just wildlife photos on Instagram. We’ll see how I like this new focus.
This first image was from our trip to Mesa Verde National Park. We had to take a tour to get down to the actual ruins, but it was totally worth it. These ancient Puebloans lived incredible lives carved out of these cliff faces. Clambering down death-defying drops to access these fortresses and surviving off of corn and seep springs. Wow… You can read all about our full adventures at Cliff Palace and the other ruins right here.
I am still recovering from our incredible trip to Norway, so I didn’t post to Instagram as much as I ordinarily would have. In fact, I pretty much just had the few pictures from Norway!
With such a phenomenally beautiful country, one can hardly take a bad photo, so it’s difficult to rank even just these!
This first one I just find so charming. We camped at many campgrounds during our journey through Norway. And this little guy was chilling by the fence to one of them. I grabbed a tuft of grass and wandered over to him, and he happily accepted my gift. Between this and the on-site trampoline (ah, camping in Norway…), I was all sorts of delighted.
Bryce Canyon’s Sunrise Point is a great vantage from which to shoot the valley below. Click to see my latest “wow” image and read the story behind it.
A stunning view from atop Angels Landing in Zion National Park!
Once more, we find ourselves at Friday! I keep experimenting with new things, and I hope you like it. Please let me know in the comments what you think!
This first one is an image from our trip to Hawaii a couple years back. The contrast of colors here really caught my eye, and this is pretty true to how I actually saw the sky as we were lazing under a tree on a tropical beach… sure sounds more appealing than the constant rain we’re facing now!
This week, I went back to some variety. Alaska, Yosemite.. even a touch of Hawaii and something local. So let’s get to it!
This first image is from my post this week on the endless Alaskan daylight. While I do love my sunshine, it’s a bit disruptive to my circadian rhythm to be deprived of so many hours of darkness. You can read that post here.
Happy Friday, and welcome to almost the last post of the year! I still have one more weekly challenge for this year, but this is the last full week. Do you like these Instagram reviews?
This first image was from our cliffside discovery on the Oregon coast. We were so awed by this day, and I can’t wait to discover similar secrets of the Oregon shoreline.
Some things I’ve learned in the path to pro
