Purple Pass

We have to make time for what matters to us.

The things that feed our soul can’t be left to chance.  We have to schedule time, carve it out in our day to day lives, and make it happen.

How do you make time for what you love?

Definitely hoping to get a hatchback soon for some good old car-camping!

What’s your favorite way to travel and enjoy nature?

Road trips are food for the soul, so let’s get out when we can!

Journey of Heroes | Mountain Pass

Life is often far from fantasy, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take every opportunity to be our own hero.

We must take the initiative to live the life we want to live, to create a present and future that makes us feel alive.

Whether that means long road trips and photographing sunsets, or building a family with those you love, or anything and everything in between…it’s our responsibility to make it happen.

Let’s listen to our souls and head in the direction our hearts are trying to take us.  Let’s be our own heroes.

Cloudy days and moody weather make for some great sights up in the mountains.

Rain or shine, let’s spend some time outside with our cameras and spirits adventure-ready.

Red Pass | Mountain Sunset

This gorgeous sunset took over the landscape of Wilkerson Pass last night.

A beautiful view that was almost missed because, as usual, I got lost on some side roads in Pike National Forest.

Planning doesn’t usually go hand-in-hand with my photography style, whether concerning landscapes or portraits.

But when chasing a sunset on unfamiliar dirt roads, a map and some planning could do some good!

 

Let’s not be afraid to get lost, but let’s be prepared and do a little planning before our photography trips.  Otherwise, we might miss a gorgeous sunset!

Golden Glow | Ice Lake

This gorgeous and moody mountain range was photographed from Wilkerson Pass in Colorado.

Although taken from a pull-off, this road trip made clear the need for a car that can handle all terrain, as some of the best ‘pull-offs’ are definitely not designated.

When us photographers pull off major highways, it helps if we can get back on!

And in the spirit of Ansel Adams, I look forward to spending some time on the roof of a car for a better vantage point, platform or no!

What are some less-obvious necessities that have come up on your photographic travels?
