Guys and gals, I've been living in a snow globe in the Eastern Sierra for literally the past four days. ❄️ We got up to ten feet of snow in Mammoth Lakes. I know, ridiculous. 😳 I must say though -- one of the perks of spending a lot of time indoors while a storm hits is having what feels like endless, much-needed hours to catch up on content, get creative, and dive into edits -- when one is not shoveling piles on piles of snow, that is. In the last 96 hours or so, I've been processing numerous timelapses and putting together a timeline that tells the story I want to tell from my trip to Utah & Arizona this past October. πŸŒ„ There's nothing like that feeling of a creative high, and man, am I ever in it right now. Standby for the full video in coming weeks. Can't wait to share it with y'all. πŸ‘ŠπŸ½ // πŸ“Έ: @theycallmeac . . . . . #az #arizona #arizonaphotographer #naturalarizona #explorearizona #horseshoebend #grandcanyon #nationalparkservice #usinterior #arizonaisgorgeous #grandcircle #glencanyon #glencanyonnationalrecreationarea #coloradoriver #sunset #longexposure #natgeoyourshot #landscapephotomag #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #capturearizona #conquerarizona #artofvisuals #modernoutdoors #outdoors #getoutside #optoutside #explore #exploremore #itsamazingoutthere at Arizona

A lone Joshua Tree sits under pink skies by Death Valley just before the total lunar eclipse the other night -- the clouds cleared out just in time to get a completely clear sky and it was truly a magical experience. ✨ Be sure to check out my composite eclipse post from yesterday if you missed it! πŸ“ΈπŸŒ˜ . . . . #visitcalifornia #california #deathvalley #joshuatree #sunset #lonepine #395north #explorecalifornia #rawcalifornia #california4fun #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia #californiaholicsΒ Β  #allaboutadventures #landscape #landscapes #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #landscapephotomag #outdoors #outdoortones #optoutside #getoutside #canonphotographer #welivetoexplore #gooutsideandplay #createcommune #createexplore #itsamazingoutthere at Death Valley

Ventured out toward Death Valley last night with my buddy @joshuacrippsphotography to shoot the total lunar eclipse. We had planned to shoot the moon rising over Mono Lake, but to no one's surprise whatsoever, winter weather forced us down off the mountain and into the desert to find some clear skies. The two and a half hour drive down 395 ended up being totally worth it -- we set up our gear in an open area off the side of the road that was ripe with Joshua Trees, took in a stellar pre-eclipse sunset, then witnessed each phase of the eclipse with no cloud interference, car camped afterward, and caught pre-sunrise moonset over the Eastern Sierra near Mt. Whitney early this morning. πŸŒ„ It's been just over a year now that I've been exploring the various landscapes that make up this part of the country, and I continue to find myself constantly in awe of the diversity of this region. After shooting in a desert last night, there was nearly a foot of fresh snow and chain restrictions on the way back into town. Because of course there was. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈβ„ NOTE: Image is (obviously πŸ˜‰) a composite. Twelve shots in total -- 11 telephoto shots taken at each moon phase with a 200-400mm lens then aligned to their appropriate position in a 16mm wide-angle landscape. πŸ“ΈπŸŒ΅ . . . . . #visitcalifornia #california #deathvalley #joshuatree #lunareclipse #lonepine #395north #astrophotography #nightphotography #rawcalifornia #california4fun #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia #californiaholics #eclipse #allaboutadventures #landscape #landscapes #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #landscapephotomag #outdoors #optoutside #getoutside #winter #fullmoon #easternsierra #superbloodwolfmoon #itsamazingoutthere at Death Valley

"It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one." πŸ”βœŒπŸ½πŸ“Έ . . . . . #visitmammoth #visitcalifornia #california #mammothlakes #nosmalladventure #monocountytourism #mammothcreativecollective #sunset #mammothstories #rawcalifornia #california4fun #naturalcalifornia #wildcalifornia #californiaholics #395north #allaboutadventures #landscape #landscapes #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #landscapephotomag #outdoors #optoutside #getoutside #winter #winteriscoming #winterishere #catchthewinterwave #itsamazingoutthere at Mammoth Lakes, California

These mountains, y'all -- they just give off a certain energy when all that rock gets coated in snow. πŸ” Looking forward to photographing endless winter scenery once the heavy stuff drops 24 hours from now. πŸ™ŒπŸ½β„οΈ Consider this photo a teaser trailer of sorts. πŸ˜‰ . . . . . #visitmammoth #visitcalifornia #california #mammothlakes #nosmalladventure #monocountytourism #mammothcreativecollective #easternsierra #mammothstories #rawcalifornia #california4fun #naturalcalifornia #skicalifornia #californiaholics #mammothmountain #allaboutadventures #landscape #landscapes #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #landscapephotomag #outdoors #optoutside #getoutside #winter #winteriscoming #winterishere #catchthewinterwave #itsamazingoutthere at Mammoth Lakes, California
