Here's a challenge. How about actually getting outside and doing something beneficial this Earth Day Weekend instead of just posting about it on social media? There are plenty of volunteer opportunities with for example your local park services. Get out there, plant a tree, pick up litter, repair a trail or educate a child πŸŒ΄β›ΊπŸ”₯🌊 πŸ“· Checking an oilboom that protects a vast RAMSAR area. * * * * * #parkranger #optoutside #departedoutdoors #wildernessculture #getoutside #paddlelife #adventurelife #explore #exploremore #kcco #chiveon #Curacao #islandlife #caribbean #nature #natureismyplayground #werehikers #gopro #exploreyournation #onlytheoutdoors #everytrailconnects #outdoorsman #getoutsideandplay #ilivewhereyouvacation #mynature #wekeepitwild #rei1440project #ilivewhereyouvacation #peoplewhohike #rightnowincuracao

I've been wanting to shoot at this location since the very moment I discovered it. Honestly... I'm embarrassed to say how long ago that was... One way or another things never really worked out. Lack of time, skewed priorities and sometimes simply the vibes of whomever was available to shoot with just never synced. The pool of people willing to hike out and then patiently pose and wait for the right light, those perfect rays, and that specific shade of gold is not really big either. All of this deff lead to some creation frustration... I bet most artists are familiar with that feeling... That one project... Cooking away on the back burner... You know what you want... But the ingredients just aren't coming together... That is... till @lotjevb_ and I made it happen. It was definitely a fun, relaxing day. 🌀️ #hammocktime! * * * * * #parkranger #outsidelifestyle #departedoutdoors #wildernessculture #getoutside #hiking #adventurelife #explore #exploremore #kcco #chiveon #Curacao #islandlife #caribbean #nature #natureismyplayground #exploreyournation #onlytheoutdoors #everytrailconnects #getoutsideandplay #ilivewhereyouvacation #rei1440project #werehikers #ilivewhereyouvacation #findyourpark #peoplewhohike #rightnowincuracao #hammocklife #hammocking #korsoubigup

Let's be honest... How many of you take the time to enjoy a full sunrise when able? Many people no longer have this privilege, especially considering the fact that many live in cities with obstructed horizons. When was the last time you had a front row seat to enjoy all the phases? The blueish pre-glow? The sun slowly inching its way up through the sky? Call it nihilism, but we have to accept that we only have an X amount of time on this blue planet. An X amount of time means and X amount of moments... So when you can and are able... Get out there and enjoy the gifts that most people take for granted. And do your best to share these moments with loved ones... #hammocktime! * * * * * #parkranger #outsidelifestyle #departedoutdoors #wildernessculture #getoutside # #adventurelife #explore #exploremore #kcco #chiveon #Curacao #islandlife #caribbean #nature #natureismyplayground #exploreyournation #onlytheoutdoors #everytrailconnects #landcruiser #getoutsideandplay #fj75 #ilivewhereyouvacation #rei1440project #overlanding #ilivewhereyouvacation #findyourpark #peoplewhohike #rightnowincuracao #hammocklife #hammocking

And now we're here! #HammockTime. βˆ†=Continued from previous post!=βˆ† ~Making trails, route setting and the sustainable placement of amenities are the colors on a Park Ranger's palette.~ It is with this palette that we try to paint an attractive portrait that will hopefully lure more people to #optoutside. The thing is, that like Art, people have varied tastes in what attracts them to Nature. As the artists it's our job to cater to these tastes in a sustainable manner. Why you may ask? Because in the end, people will only conserve what they Love, they will only Love what they Understand, and they will only Understand what they are Taught. It's a given, that providing Experiences, is one of the best tools that a teacher has in their tool bag. And here I show you how to me, 5 years of labor and experiences climaxed in one shutter-click -- Forever immortalized in a photograph. I hope this inspires you to get out there and experience Nature, as beautiful Art and man's first and best teacher...

Started from the bottom... #HammockTime. It took about five years to finish this project. Lots of man-hours and $ was invested on what is now regarded as the most difficult trail on the island(for now 😏). But in the end it's all worth it in order to get more people outside their cubicles and their comfort zones. Making trails, route setting and the sustainable placement of amenities are the colors on a Park Ranger's palette. βˆ†=Continued in next post!=βˆ† * * * * * #parkranger #optoutside #outsidelifestyle #departedoutdoors #wildernessculture #getoutside #hiking #adventurelife #explore #exploremore #kcco #chiveon #Curacao #islandlife #caribbean #nature #natureismyplayground #werehikers #exploreyournation #onlytheoutdoors #everytrailconnects #getoutsideandplay #ilivewhereyouvacation #rei1440project #werehikers #ilivewhereyouvacation #findyourpark #peoplewhohike #rightnowincuracao #hammocklife #hammocking
