what are your favourite waterfalls to go to?. . . Little baby falls hidden in plain site, off a bridge in Lynn Canyon. the bridge was too small for foot traffic and a tripod, and so shaky I took about a million shots give or take 😂. . . #vancitybuzz #pnw_moods #vancouverisawesome #vancityhype #604now #VancityVibe #veryvancouver #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #exploretocreate #canadagram #explorecanada #igersvancouver #vancityscape #insidecanada #enjoycanada #imagesofcanada #explorebc #explorevancouver #narcityvancouver #explorecanada #canadasworld #splendidcanada #gosomewhereawesome #canadaviews #explorevanNS

It's strange to think there was a bear attack right around this area last year, in the busiest part of Vancouver's North Shore. If you have a wildlife encounter story, share it in the comments below. . . It's also strange that I was the first one here in the morning. I think my camera took on more rain than any camera should 😂 . . #vancitybuzz #vancouverisawesome #vancityhype #604now #VancityVibe #veryvancouver #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #canadagram #explorecanada #igersvancouver #vancityscape #lynncanyon #LF10K #insidecanada #enjoycanada #imagesofcanada #explorebc #explorevancouver #narcityvancouver #canadasworld #worldprime #theimaged #ccunderfollowed #thankyoucanada #bcisbeautiful #gosomewhereawesome #canadaviews #createourworld #explorevanNS

I have to give @kayleynelson credit for this composition. she saw the rainfall in the distance and basically said 'you need to shoot that!' on a little saunter to Lighthouse Park. . . I'll say this, the a6000 with no in-body stabilization, and the Rokinon 135 being an all manual lens, getting it stable (even on tripod) can be a challenge. . . #vancitybuzz #vancouverisawesome #vancityhype #604now #VancityVibe #veryvancouver #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #exploretocreate #canadagram #explorecanada #igersvancouver #vancityscape #insidecanada #enjoycanada #imagesofcanada #explorebc #explorevancouver #narcityvancouver #explorecanada #canadasworld #worldprime #earthpix #ig_bliss #splendidcanada #ig_bestpicworldtravel #thankyoucanada #bcisbeautiful #canadaviews #createourworld

Vancouver is a complicated city. One can fall down and be picked up by strangers, while at the same time, be verbally trashed for who we are or what we think. There's no real point to this, just a hope we keep moving in the right direction and be the togetherness we keep trying to portray. . . Mt. Pleasant is a great little spot in Vancouver. It shows the 'little city' side of what is a very large metropolitan area. . . If you're not already entered, I'm doing a print giveaway, open until 11:59pm PST tonight.

Do you ever have a thing, that you know you can do but the anticipation and importance is so built up, it gives you anxiety? I didn't want to work on this image because of the anxiety, and when I was, all I could think of was, 'don't screw it up don't screw it up... redo it. do it again. . . I'm still not sure if I'm 100% happy with it, but nothing ever really is, and posting gives me a feeling of relief. . That's it folks, my masterpiece. This is what I have to beat next time I go out and shoot. . . #mesaarch #canyonlands #gs10k #lifeofadventure #exklusive_shot  #theglobewanderer  #marvelous_shots #createcommune  #exploretocreate  #travelandlife #instagoodmyphoto #worldplaces #beautifuldestinations #earthgallery #awesome_earth #aov #discoverearth #wonderful_places #discoverglobe #fantastic_earth #earthfocus  #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #theoutbound

Travel Tip 74: if you're heading to a beautiful destination, don't stop to take photos a million times before you get there. I was so awestruck when I entered this state park that I did exactly that. The views became exponentially more amazing the further in I got, and by the time so reached this spot I was full on running with my gear against the fleeting sunset to get the shot. . . . #valleyoffire #statepark #nationalparkgeek #pnwphotographer #trappingtones #NVStateParks #depthsofearth #gs10k #ccunderfollowed #travelawesome #landscapephotomag #explorenevada #landscapehunter #ig_landscape #igersvancouver #naturalnevada #naturalunited #DFMI #optoutside #offthebeatenpath #exklusive_shot  #theglobewanderer  #marvelous_shots #visualsoflife  #createcommune  #exploretocreate  #travelandlife #instagoodmyphoto #worldplaces  #bestvacations

The things keeping me above water are my ridiculous obsessions. you were born to do more than pay bills and die. If your passion is an itch that's driving you mad, don't hold back. If you're like me, almost 30 and no idea what your calling in life is going to be, don't stop finding it. . . . #nationalparkgeek #NP10K #canyonlandsnationalpark #chasingsunrise #milkyway  #astrophotography  #milkywaychasers  #nightsky  #natgeospace  #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper  #beautifuldestinations  #astrophoto #gs10k  #universetoday #astro_photography_  #ig_astrophotography #nightscape  #earthofficial  #nightphotography #nightpics  #starrynight  #depthsofearth #nightimages  #fantastic_universe  #stargazing  #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo  #milkywaychasers #longexposure_shots

Talk about meeting your heroes. I met this beauty on a gorgeous Saturday night. I wish I could've stayed forever. . was going to originally use this as a stacked foreground and add a sky, but the rising pinkish milky way in the blue hour has a subtle glow that turned out really well . . #longexposure_shots #worldprime #earthfocus #longexpo_addiction #longexpoelite #ig_bliss #ig_shots_le #amazing_longexpo #Ig_color #ccunderfollowed #igersvancouver #nightscaper #astrography_ #milkywaypics #milkyway #astrophoto #nightscaper #starphotography #starscape #longexpo_additction #udog_sky #landscape_captures #awesomeearth #milkywaychasers #starrynight #longexposure #astro_photography_ #ic_longexpo #fs_longexpo

Taking a big swing into the wild on this one. I follow such amazing image creators and astrophotographers on here that it was intimidating just to experiment with nightscape composites. Foregeound is 1 exposure in the #valleyoffire state park during blue hour milky way is a 5 image stack taken in #joshuatreenationalpark. Everything on Sony a6000 with 50mm 1.8 oss . . . #nationalparkgeek #NP10K #moodytoning #moodygrams #milliondollarvisuals #creativeoptic #way2ill #artofvisuals #travelpassport #theimaged #milkywaychasers #longexposure_shots #fantastic_universe #night_excl #destination_wow #earth_deluxe #hotshotz #worldbestshot #igbest_shotz #longexposureoftheday #visualcreators #creativetones #mightydreamers #ig_bestpicworldtravel #All2Epic #FatalFrames10k

Booted through Death Valley to get here, only to just miss the sunset, alongside another group of photographers. So what did I do? Stay up all night to shoot astro (no camping allowed), have a standoff with a mini scorpion, and caught the sunrise. The colours in the sky weren't so prominent, but the sand was cool and there was no one around. . #deathvalley #sanddunes #sonyalpha #sonyimages #igersvancouver #pixel_ig #landscape_hunter #landscape_lovers #landscapecaptures #landscapeporn #getlost #ig_landscape #trapping_tones #ig_masterpiece #ig_podium #splendid_earth #gramslayers #agameoftones #optoutside #discoverearth #exploretheglobe #nakedplanet #places_wow #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial #natgeo #awesome_earthpix #gs10k

Joshua Tree was a special place. it was the only stop along the way I gave myself more than 1 night to explore. I had just finished up shooting a location, when on the drive out the sky went crazy! . 2500 miles in 7 days 1768 shutter count 4 states, 6 parks, 2 cars, no sleep . Also, I've been told I have no Canadian accent. . #joshuatree #nationalparks #californiadreaming #igersvancouver #sonyalpha #sonyimages #worldprime #theimaged #earthpix #earthfocus #ig_bliss #eclectic_shotz #ig_shotz #earth_shotz #Ig_color #ccunderfollowed #mg5k #playoftones #gs10k #nakedplanet

this isn't a presentable piece, just a phone pic, and I questioned whether to post it. But as I sit here planning the next couple days and waiting for the chafing to subside from yesterday's hike, I wanted to take advantage of the wifi 🤣. America, your internet is FAST!
