A bit of a life update for those who are interested - is anyone still here?
The transition back to city life after spending 6 months hiking was more difficult than I expected. It still feels a bit like I’m pretending to be someone that lives here when actually I don’t (It's been a year and a half, I definitely live here).
I’ve been able to get out of the city a few times, mostly up to Scotland where I’ve been taking a few outdoor courses - most proud of my Wilderness First Responder certification which I got from a very intense week of wilderness medical training with @wemsiinternational back in November.
I did manage to find a very cheap flight out to California for a couple of weeks in October to visit my friends Rebekah and Jake. I hiked with them through most of Oregon and a lot of Washington, so it was really amazing to spend some time with them, reminiscing about the good old days and seeing what they’ve been up to since - one of those things is renovating the trailer above into this beautiful little desert home. I also managed to spend a few days back on the PCT which was SO great. These pictures are from that trip.
But yeah, I’ve pretty much spent the last year and a half hunkering down, working and saving everything I possibly can so that one day I'll be able to afford to go away again. I’ve been really fortunate to find a full-time job that I enjoy with people I like spending time with, and to be able to move in with my dad which has actually been really nice and has allowed me to cut my spending down to very little.
Hiking the PCT back in 2018 gave me a taste of a lifestyle I grew to love, and I feel like I owe it to myself to explore that side of my life as much as I can while im still young. SO, I'm aiming to set off towards the end of this year, and if all goes well this time I’ll be out exploring wild and remote places for at least a few years before the city life claims me back (It's good to dream big, right?)
I photographed this closeup view of some ice along a gently flowing creek in Zion National Park this past February. It was the final day of my trip, and I thought I was done taking photos for the trip. While wandering along the creek and picking up random bits of trash, I stumbled upon this stretch of ice. I returned to by truck, grabbed my 8x10 camera, then set up a simple composition that filled the frame. I needed 1.7 stops of bellows compensation for this photo, so it’s nearly 1:1. This photo was taken on @fujifilm_profilm Provia 100F with my @arcaswissusa F Metric 8x10 and my Nikkor W 300mm 5.6.

I wish this was my pool
A sunset along the San Diego coast is a magical thing to say the least!

We don’t want a police state!
LAPD doesn’t need 3 Billion dollars!
What we need is to reallocate a lot of their budget to non-policing forms of public safety and community support, such as social services, youth services, housing, education, and other community resources ✊🏼✊🏿
Sydney Airport in New South Wales, Australia. At the top of this Overview, we see a Boeing 747 (left) and an Airbus A380 (right) parked in front of blast deflector fences, massive structures that protect people and property during engine tests. As the busiest airport in Australia, the facility handles more than 42 million passengers each year.

Я никогда такого не снимал, но захотелось чуть чуть разбавить архитектуру.
Это библиотека в Хельсинки, та самая, о которой рассказывал @varlamov

Cali summer nights feel so good ☀️
OK, does anyone else see a long haired blue mermaid or naked shy girl there in the top nebulae in Nu Scorpii ?

Hesitation will never let you out of the comfort zone holding you back from succeeding your life goals 👌🏼
“Inviato” // I’m currently developing a large collection of images that I’ve dreamed up during quarantine. I can’t wait to share them with you upon their completion.

Sony just announced the 12-24 f/2.8 GM lens. I’ve been lucky enough to be shooting with it for about a week. These are some of the images I was able to take around Seattle. A few of things I want to mention:
1. Build quality is spectacular.
2. The lens is sharp corner to corner.
3. There is minimal flare when I shoot directly into the sun
4. Filters can be placed behind the lens in a slot at the lens mount
