"You were born to do more than just pay bills and die" - @chasingsunrise . Words I live by these days. While it's easy to fall into the day-to-day trap of routine, creativity, passion and a yearning for living are most important. . . This is a blend/composite with the foreground in Valley of Fire State Park and the sky shot in Joshua Tree National Park. The foreground was a pano stitch of about 12 images. The sky was a 2 panel mosaic stitch, each compiled of 5 x 180s tracked exposures median stacked. . . Skywatchers Star Adventurer, a6000, Sony 50/1.8, Sirui tripod, and a rental Yaris with expensive insurance. . . . #igersvancouver #longexpo_addiction #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #milkywayshooters #astrophotography #gs10k #agameof10k #natgeospace #nightscaper #nationalparksgeek #joshuatreenps #amazing_longexpo #ig_shots_le #rsa_night

Now that the holidays are almost wrapped up, how about a photo of a hazy golden hour sunset with the tide rolling in? . . Holidays are tough for everyone. I find that even the things I love feel meaningless to me more and more often because I'm letting depression and thoughts of suicide take over. Years of trying to DIY it I'm finally trying out proper treatment and have recently opened up to my so of 8 years about it. If you feel like giving up or are having a hard time please talk to someone, dm me or get help. I've even found r/depression on Reddit a great place to vent anonymously. . . #igersvancouver #worldprime #theimaged #earthpix #ig_bliss #ccunderfollowed #ig_underdogz #ig_bestpicworldtravel #openexposure #gosomewhereawesome #createourworld #longexposure_shots #longexpo_addiction #longexpoelite #ig_bliss #ig_shots_le #amazing_longexpo #eclectic_shotz #ig_shotz #earth_shotz #Ig_color

For years I've wanted to capture the Milky Way from a plane window. Unfortunately the core of the MW is in hibernation (and I'm facing North). Well today, I can confidently say, 'close enough'. . . The 2nd shot was a happy accident, thanks to turbulance. . . each were 8s iso6400 f2 on a6000/rokinon 12/2 jammed up against the window covered (not very well) by a hoodie. the warmer tones in the sky are mostly light leak from the cabin hitting the window so in an attempt cover it up I jammed the white balance in the cool direction . . . #nightscaper #milkyway_nightscapes #universetoday #milkywaychasers #universe_dope #natgeospace #nightphotography_exclusive #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #amazing_longexpo #astrophotography #longexposurephotography #nightshooters #nightsky #astro_photography_ #starrynight #ic_longexpo #ig_shotz_le #rsa_night #yyz #yvr #igersvancouver

My first attempt of the North America Nebula. Full spectrum, unmodified sony a6000, rokinon 135/f2, Skywatcher SA mount, and a richety picnic table. . . It was a ridiculously cloudy night and only a few frames were clear. If anyone has shot dslr astro before and have feedback I'd love to hear it. . . #vancitybuzz #vancouverisawesome #vancityhype #604now #VancityVibe #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #exploretocreate #canadagram #explorecanada #igersvancouver #narcityvancouver #bcisbeautiful #longexposure_shots #longexpo_addiction #astro_photography_ #astrography_ #deepspace #milkywaychasers #nightscaper #deepspace #deepspacenine

The exchange for our kick ass health care, are clouds on every night you want to shoot astro. After a skunked out session of shooting astro last night, I was too stubborn to go home empty handed. Here's a long exposure on the dock at Porteau Cove. . . 510s, Iso 800, f5.0 wb auto, a6000 rokinon 12/2 . . . #gs10k #longexposure_shots #vancitybuzz #vancouverisawesome #vancityhype #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #canadagram #explorecanada #igersvancouver #insidecanada #enjoycanada #imagesofcanada #explorebc #narcityvancouver #explorecanada #canadasworld #worldprime #theimaged #earthpix #ig_bliss #ccunderfollowed #splendidcanada #ig_bestpicworldtravel #exploresquamish #openexposure #thankyoucanada #bcisbeautiful #canadaviews

I've never posted anything on here straight out of the camera before; uncropped, no post processing, no filters (never used one before anyway), not even a lens profile. . . . This isn't the first time I've gone out to capture something that didn't pan out, and then snap something I end up liking at the last second before packing it in. . . . #redditphotography #grittyside #nse_urban #frametality #urbanaisle #vancitybuzz #vancouverisawesome #citykillerz #vancityhype #604now #VancityVibe #veryvancouver #streetshared #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #igersvancouver #explorevancouver #narcityvancouver #theimaged #streets_vision #fatalframes10k #createourworld #redditITAP

As we wrap up summer, we find that there are two kinds of people; the ones who are excited for change, fall colours, snow, sweater weather, brisk mornings, skiing, seasonal coffee, stouts and dark ale... and.... what was I talking about again? . #kootrocks . . . #veryvancouver #dailyhivevan #vancityfeature #exploretocreate #canadagram #explorecanada #igersvancouver #insidecanada #enjoycanada #imagesofcanada #explorebc #narcityvancouver #explorecanada #canadasworld #worldprime #earthpix #ig_bliss #splendidcanada #ig_bestpicworldtravel #thankyoucanada #bcisbeautiful #gosomewhereawesome #canadaviews #createourworld #yeskootrocks #ourmoodydays #folkscenery
