A year ago today, my dumb ass fells backward off of a wall and injured my middle finger and coccyx pretty bad. My ass healed after a week. My finger took months of doing my own physical therapy to get it to bend. Today, on rare occasions, my finger locks up. BUT, overall, it’s as if nothing happened. I wish that’s how my ankle felt now. **shrug** ❦ Anyhow, had you told me that instead of trekking my annual Guadalupe Mountains hike with my kid that I’d be hiking a trail I’d never heard of, I’d think you were nuts. But holy shit, Batman. This trail was incredible. It kicked my ass, but I expected nothing less. And of course, I rolled my ankle on the way down. Then, I got scolded on not going hiking anymore without wearing a brace. **sigh** ❦ . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwonderland #upperleftusa #thatpnwlife #pnwdiscovered #explorepnw #pacificnorthwest #pnwcollective #northwestisbest #pnwlife #northwestcreatives #northwest #greatnorthcollective #cascadiaexplored #thenwadventure #stayandwander #optoutside #rei1440project #itsamazingoutthere #natgeoinspires #fiftyshades_of_nature #mytinyatlas #wishyouwerenorthwest #wallacefalls #washington #wanderwashington #peoplewhoadventure #adventurethatislife #seattle #washingtonstateparks

Коммуникабельность-важное качество фотографа! ⠀ Всем привет, хочу рассказать о коммуникабельности. Не могу сказать учат этому в фото школах или на вэбинарах, но именно этой способностью по-хорошему лучше владеть человеку в путешествиях. Скажу честно, для меня не составляет труда подойти, разговориться, войти в доверие и расположить к себе человека,но я уверен,что для многих это очень трудно. ⠀ Расскажу простой случай. В экспедиции на плато Устюрт столкнулись с банальной проблемой не хватки питьевой воды. Это не те места где с ледников течёт хрустальная вода и вопрос приготовления пищи и гигиены стоит не остро. Места тут суровые и вопрос пополнения запасов воды один из первых на повестке дня. Местное население покупает воду цистернами по 2-3куба, а это значит, что найти источник в условиях открытого пространства не так то просто, поэтому в любых населённых пунктах ищем питьевую воду. ⠀ В этот раз мы остановились в населённом пункте Акспэ. Как написала об этом месте одна из наших участниц экспедиции @kurganovich2016 умирающий Аральск кажется мегаполисом по сравнению с ним. Связи нет, 12–15 дворов, дороги переметены песком, один магазин,получивший наверно двух недельную выручку после нашего захода. Местное население уже очень плохо говорит по русски, но похоже понимают и пытаются поддержать разговор. И вот в этом месте нужно найти одну из трёх главных составляющих экспедиции воду (остальные это топливо и газ) ⠀ А вот тут в ход уже может идти всё что угодно. Презенты(брелки, магниты, наклейки), если есть дети то у меня всегда пакет игрушек и сладостей, а для взрослых сигареты, алкоголь и угощения, деньги. Если всего этого нет то только улыбка и ваши дипломатические характеристики Вам в помощь. Если не помогают, то лучше поблагодарить и быстро распрощаться и искать того кто более сговорчив. Вот и в Акспэ мы сделали всё, чтобы набрать 150 литров драгоценной в этих местах жидкости. Дети получили сладости, а молодёжи мы подарили сувенирку. Поговорили, узнали дорогу, сделали общую фотографию и отправились дальше. Вот так благодаря простым идеям можно легко войти в доверие местных жителей. Если у Вас есть интересные истории или методы, напишите, будет интересно .

Periclimenes colemani 🦐 • The Coleman Shrimp usually found in pairs exclusively on the fire urchin (Asthenosoma varium), which in turn is known as the toxic sea urchin. The larger one is the female. The host urchin's spines do not harm the shrimp, but they usually clear an area on the urchin where they perch. #natgeoinspires

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could. #landscapephotography #landscapelover #pixel_ig #landscapeporn #agameoftones #optoutside #discoverearth #exploretheglobe #nakedplanet #earthfocus #natgeo #ourplanetdaily #chasinglight #momentsovermountains #agameoftones #artofvisuals #natgeoinspires #adventuresession #fromwhereistand #lovewhereyoulive #passionpassport #northwestisbest #pnw #love #life #quote

It was only 5AM when I took the kayak out into the lagoon to search for macaws & crocodiles while watching the sun rise over the calm water. It's tranquility reflected back at me like a mirror & reminded me how beautiful our planet is in the early mornings. The Boat billed heron stopped by to say good morning while building its nest. .

A Hike To Remember - 9/11/19 . This was the last hike of my day at Mesa Verde. Already of gone 6 or so miles, I was on the edge about actually heading out to this vantage point to see the last ancient ruin, but decided to see what I was missing. Most National Parks are pretty crowded, so to have some moments alone on a nice walk was just what I needed after a long day. I wish I had gotten the sunsetting over the horizons, as the cliff villages sank back into the rocks. . I sat up here for awhile, from this moment, until dark. There are many moments like this. I have no where to be, so I'll just be here. As people pack up to go home, I stay the night. As people wake up to go to work, I head back up the mountain. As others live there lives, I live mine. Usually alone. Usually somewhere beautiful. . I don't really understand my itch for travel, for feeling that feeling of a new area, taking your breathe away & bring all your worries down to one point in your mind. The present moment. . . So much love every & Safe travels out there! . . . . . #nationalparkweek #nationalparks #nationalpuppyday #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkphotography #nationalparksusa #natgeoyourshot #natgeoyourshots #natgeophotography #natgeotraveling #natgeocreative #natgeoinspires #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverdecountry #rvlivin #rvlife #vanlife #theforearthshow #forearth

Fun fact! If there’s a reflective surface anywhere near your shoot I’m probably gonna use it. So when I saw how still and mirror-like the surface the Salt River was and the INSANE reflections the bulldog cliffs were casting in the water, I went a little nuts behind my camera (squealing, singing, swearing, etc etc etc). This whole adventure session was a freaking dream; the refelections, the colors, the amazing and in love couple (can you spot them in this pic? They’re tiny!). Such a great night. Loads more from this epic and color soaked evening are up on my blog!
