A slight breeze from the Pacific, views of the estuary & trails covered in poison oak. The climbing in coastal California near my home isn't world class but the experience more than makes up for its rock quality. Just make sure to bring your Tecnu. . christian_adam_ check's out the salt drenched bolts on the classic line Olas Negras 5.12 . Thanks AaronFormella for rebolting this line.

Shadow play in the badlands. Few places change this quickly... visit to visit you will see delicate formations change & evolve from wind & water. This small temple of rock might not be standing next time I walk here.

Maybe we have more in common with Glaciers than we think. Cold & hard on the surface, but deep down we all bleed. . Glacial sediment travels 100's of miles through braided rivers before rejoining the Atlantic Ocean. .

My feet have been on pavement for almost a week & it's starting to make me stir crazy. I often share my photos for other people's inspiration but the truth is more often than not I want to escape to these places just as much as you do.

I stood wide eyed staring at exhibit after exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History yesterday. Near the end I came to a large wall with this quote, "Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children." . It may be the most important thing I've read all year.

The blue hour - Many artists treasure this period for its quality of light. Its name comes from the French origin - l'heure bleue and It only lasts about 40 minutes on a clear day. It's that short period between early twilight or late dusk where the sun is so far past the horizon that it's radiance takes on a blue hue. . I didn't realize it actually had an incredibly scientific explanation until i looked it up on Wikipedia... mind blown

Is doing the things we did as a kid childish? Or exactly what we should be doing?

Nervous, excited & I can literally feel my heart beating through my chest. Tomorrow we premier "Under an Arctic Sky" at tribeca film festival then kick off our Tour. Through this process I've gained a respect for any filmmaker that has ever gone through this.. there is no greater or worse feeling than putting your work out there. . We just released our first months worth of film Tour stops. We're traveling the whole Western US including Canada. I would be honored to have you attend one of our film screenings + slideshows so I can share this film with you in person. . More stops are being added everyday including Midwest, East Coast, Europe, Aus, Iceland + many more later in summer/ fall. For Tickets check my bio link or www.UnderAnArcticSky.com/tour

The transition from a long winter to spring/ summer can be hard. Here's an example of how to cope....beautifully demonstrated by basillynch as he reintroduces his body to a little Vitamin D on a trip to the Golden Cathedral.

Aerial wave study on an isolated stretch of NZ coast. My first time shooting aerial photography, sometime around 2009.. I got hooked fast.

It's hard to describe the Joy of returning. I grew up traveling here a lot as a kid. One of my first rolls of film ever was shot here with my Grandpa. My dad is buried maybe an hour away.. in a cemetery outside Las Cruces. It has always been a little bitter sweet coming out this way. But age has given me perspective & confidence that I can put a lot of beauty out in the world. Photography has even helped heal some wounds I didn't really know were there. For me it has been so much more than just a career.. it's a tool to communicate. Some days it seems like the only language I know... or at least the one I'm the best at speaking. . I've been a bit obsessed with this photo series ..( as you can tell) but coming back to see this place in its full glory with the platform to inspire others to see it for themselves is what it's all about for me.

The rope was a little short... on purpose. Normally during a rappel you're hyper conscious of where the end of your rope is, but in Lodrino Canyon half the fun is lowering off the end & free falling into the icy water. The best part of this photo was having to go first, dropping the last 30ft with camera gear preciously packed in a dry bag. . blackdiamond

The thing about campfires is that you always remember the conversation, tend to be more agreeable & often leave as friends. Imagine if some the worlds issues & politics were discussed this way. Just a thought.
