Another fun shoot in the books with @kyehalpin. We caught the last of the wildflowers and light of the day. Congrats to this lady for setting a new women's FTK of the Teton Crest Trail! 40 miles in under 10 hours. Crushing!
What is being creative? Being creative is working together, it's working alone, it's letting things go, it's adding new ideas, it's trusting yourself, it's trusting others, it's jumping into a flow of energy and letting it take you away, it's morning light, it's darkness, it's laughing with your friends, it's taking an idea and making it happen and it's something I don't think I'll ever be able to live without. • Leap, and the net will appear.
Every time I go to a new spot in the Winds I struck by the beauty of the landscape. This time the trip was made even better by the wonderful group of people that I got to share the days with.
This is a growing season, of change, of turning, of shedding. Of letting things fall away and fall apart, and come undone and be uncovered. And then a space of surrender, just being. The reflections here are temporary, so take them in and honor them, be honest with them, and own them. But then forgive them, and don't stay in them. That's the beautiful thing about relfections. They don't last forever. Let it all go. Let yourself grow. - a lovely poem I found on the interwebs. • Thoughts before heading into the Winds for some much needed Mountain time.
We don't like endings. We don't like to lose things. And especially, we don’t like to lose things that are important to us. And make no mistake, relationships are the single most important thing to you and your life. It's the source of all of your best memories. It's the source of all of your worst memories. When you think back on your life and you're 95, a hundred years old, and you look back over the course of your lifetime, you're not gonna think, "I wish I owned a better phone, I wish I spent more time on the internet. I wish I spent more time at work or sleeping," it's not gonna be any of those kinds of things. It's gonna be, "I wish I spent more time with the people I love." - A sample from a TEDx Talk by Dr. Gary Lewandowski in a ballin' song called GFY by Dennis Lloyd. • • These words have really been resonating with me the past couple days as I'm reflecting on the people who have been in my life the past year, those who made me feel loved and those who I lost. If there is one thing I Iearned from losing you Mark, it's that there is no time for people who do nothing less than make the world brighter.
I had a conversation with a good friend recently about photography, why we do it and what it can feel like. We talked about how sometimes photography takes you back to being a kid again. When I look through the viewfinder, I feel like I'm seeing the world from the eyes of my five year old self, full of wonder, imagination and awe. It's a frequent reminder of how incredible the world is once you choose to look past what you see as normal and notice the little things. I hope to never lose that, always looking for the light and beauty. That's why I love photography. . A quiet moment after a day on the lake in Stanley, Idaho.
Sometimes you get lucky in life with the people you meet. I'll never forget the first time I met this girl nearly 10 years ago, when we skinny-dipped in the Puget Sound and I got stung by a jellyfish, or the time we ran from that crazy bartender in Playa Del Carmen. We were absolutely scared to death, running through the streets, while we were chased by two guys, who turned out just to be two bored teenage professional videogamers. It's those and many other memories that make me so grateful to call you one of my best friends. We've traveled together, inspired eachother and gone on some wild adventures. Thanks for the short, but sweet visit @acanc1 . Miss ya already!
This is one of my favorite places in the whole world. I love it not only for the spectacular scenery, but for the fily history that resides here. This is the land where my father grew up and the ranch that my great grandparents started. When I visit I always feel a strong presence of fily, from the current day and the past. I feel connected to my roots and I at home at Maracaibo. Check out @stetsonusa this week for a little write up and shoot I did for the #stetsonsummerseries on my fily ranch in Colombia. This one is close to my heart.
There are about 30 people on board this flight from Anchorage to Valdez. The noise from the engine and props is so loud, I have no idea what the stewardess is saying, but it doesn't matter. I completely distracted by the view anyways. I can't stop taking pictures and looking out the window. Crevasses and glaciers cover the landscape. I've never seen mountains like this in my life. We fly over multiple mountain ranges and inlets. The dark rocky terrain and iceberg freckled ocean below look like a painting. In the distance, the mountainous scenery fades into the sea. I took this shot on my way into Valdez last week. The small two prop plane, or puddle-jumper as some call it, felt a little sketch, but any fear I had was masked by the clear day and beautiful views. #kavudays
It's one of my last days in Alaska. I'm sitting on the bow of the Andy Sea and realizing just how wild Alaska still is. A sea plane flys overhead. Waves gently tap the shoreline. A flock of seagulls harass sea lions in front of the boat. The lions surface, cocking their heads back and swallowing salmon whole. The gulls bob up and down in the water, hoping they might get some dinner leftovers. A couple bald eagles fly by. I'm surrounded by steep forested mountainsides. Clouds cover the peaks around the boat and veil massive frozen glaciers. They slowly creep forward and feed the sea. I feel like I'm surrounded by hidden giants. It's my last day in Alaska and I'm a bit bummed. The rocking of the boat and sounds of the ocean have become familiar and comfortable. Land doesn't sound as appealing as the boat anymore and I feel so incredibly lucky to have experienced all this. #kavudays
I've been up since 6:00 AM. It's now midnight. Salmon are still jumping. A few seals are swimming around. I hear seagulls and the hum of boat engines in the distance. The sun has been setting for hours now and I can't sleep because the light just keeps getting better and better. Such an incredible day.
Throw back to finding a tropical beach in Idaho. One of my favorite places I've visited this summer. Bear Lake, ID.
“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.” ― Gabriel Garcia Marquez • • • Each time I visit Colombia, I lucky to explore something new. I learn about myself and my fily. For me, every moment is precious. This time I got to visit more of the countryside outside of Manizales. The scenery was spectacular, but the coolest part was getting to spend time with my Tio and learn how ranches in this subtropical high altitude climate operate.
I took this photo last week while visiting La Primavera Finca with my Tio in Colombia. This ranch sits on a lush mountainside just below the Páramo. The Páramo is a unique ecosystem only found at high elevations in the Andes Mountains. In this photo, it's hidden behind the clouds. I've visited the Páramo before and my dad has told me about it many times, but I didn't realize how unique it was. The ecosystem acts like a sponge, collecting water from clouds and fog, storing it in vegetation, and then releasing it into the lowlands. Fuzzy tall cactus-like plants absorb moisture as clouds pass by. Just like how we depend on snowmelt in the states, millions of Colombians depend on this natural system as a water source. Recent research from the University of Columbia has found that just like the arctic, temperatures in the Páramos are warming. I can't wait to go back and learn more about this.
It is within darkness sometimes we find the most brilliant light. I probably saw over a dozen rainbows while I was in Colombia. Each of them reminded me of the beauty that comes after a storm.
So good to be back Colombia. It's been way too long. ♥️🇨🇴
When someone passes away people tell you their memory lives on. I didn't really understand this saying for awhile. This week I finally learned what that means. Your love lives on in all of these people. Pretty amazing to fly with you today. Thanks for putting this on @turquoise.sparrow and to all the people that came out to fly. These were some of the hardest pictures I've ever taken, but by far the most meaningful. Love you Mark.
