Didn’t get much on snow time this trip back home. Definitely in part to the repeated warm temps, rain, and deep-freeze cycles, but also my ongoing ankle injury and a new blood blister on my foot. Fun times. I did get to spend a large chunk of my time striking out to photograph some winter scenes, but my trips to Vermont are never long enough these days. I still got to make some turns, too, and as long as I can do that every season, even if it’s a far cry from the 120+ days on snow I used to get, I can stay sane for another year 🎿❄️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #stratton #skivermont #fromwhereidrone #52weeksofnature #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #wildernessculture #roam #discoverearth #theglobalwanderer #roamtheplanet #getlost #travelawesome #wanderlust #travelstoke #worldshotz #shotwithlove #outdoornation #thephotosociety #earthpix #natgeoyourshot #mastershots #earthoutdoors10k #nikonnofilter #optoutside #socialabsorption #crossinglatitudes #benjaminginsberg #driftwoodfoto at Stratton Mountain Resort

The oldest marble quarry in the country became a swimming hole long before I was born. Growing up jumping the cliffs into the frigid, spring fed waters on sweltering, New England summer days was a right of passage. I hadn’t been here for years until this past week. Summer or winter this place is beautiful and holds a special place in my heart. It used to be (even in my lifetime) that on even the hottest summer days, you might find twenty other people here, or even no one else at all. That was before the current property owners cleared the woods, exposing it to view from the road. Now even in winter, the signs of its increased popularity is readily apparent. From the greater visibility from the road, to a new bridge crossing the stream, more ladders to climb out, and the unfortunate graffiti and beer cans... A place like this, which is technically on private land, is a treasure we need to all take care of and respect; least they put up a fence and bar access like they did the adjacent upper quarry two decades ago. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #dorsetquarry #vermont #protectlocaltreasures #52weeksofnature #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #wildernessculture #roam #discoverearth #theglobalwanderer #roamtheplanet #getlost #travelawesome #wanderlust #travelstoke #worldshotz #shotwithlove #outdoornation #thephotosociety #earthpix #natgeoyourshot #mastershots #earthoutdoors10k #nikonnofilter #optoutside #socialabsorption #crossinglatitudes #benjaminginsberg #driftwoodfoto at Dorset, Vermont

I always loved photos, but I rediscovered my love for photography while living abroad after college, and didn’t become a “photographer” until I moved to California a decade ago. It’s a lot of fun coming back home and exploring places all over again with a new, creative eye. at Stratton Mountain, Vermont

Flying high over the frozen West River as it cuts through Rawsonville, VT. It's an amazing feeling being home, where I spent so much of my life, with new toys to capture perspectives I've never seen before of places I've been many times before 🚁 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #westriver #ilovevermont #strattonmountain #52weeksofnature #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #wildernessculture #roam #skypixel #theglobalwanderer #roamtheplanet #getlost #travelawesome #wanderlust #travelstoke #dronestagram #shotwithlove #outdoornation #thephotosociety #earthpix #natgeoyourshot #mastershots #earthoutdoors10k #djimavicpro #optoutside #socialabsorption #crossinglatitudes #benjaminginsberg #driftwoodfoto at Rawsonville, Vermont

Head first. The best way to go about things in life, especially those that scare you 👻 at Laguna Beach, California

This was from my first trip to Joshua Tree. 109° during the day, about 96° at night. Magic in the early morning hours ✨ at Joshua Tree National Park

I confess, I’ve never been much of a runner; odd as I was a running back when I played football... Yet if I were, I think this would be a perfect road to go for a run down. Where’s your favorite place to go for a run?⠀ ⠀ I’ll be back in Vermont around Stratton Mtn next week, and this road should be nice and snow covered — dm if you’re around Stratton Mtn and want to be a fitness model for me in some bright color jacket or outfit. 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃❄️ at Bondville, Vermont

Crisp morning light over the water... it’s like bringing a photo studio out into nature ☀️✨ at Trestles

Would you stand down the face of these stormy waters?⠀ ⠀ I opted to stay dry this day, but this has always been one of my favorite places to swim and take photos. The past couple seasons I've done a lot of traveling, chasing swells through Central California, north to Oregon, south to Baja, and a quick hop over the Pacific to Hawaii. An injury has kept me local this winter so far, but it afforded me the opportunity to be in town and come shoot here near home once again. If you look for it, there's always a silver lining, even to an injury. at County of Orange, California

Pot of gold must be at Maverick’s... 🌈 🌊 at Half Moon Bay, California

I could've spent a week here on the shores of Diamond Beach, waiting for the perfect lighting, tides, waves, and scattering of icebergs beached along the black volcanic sands. As it was, I got about an hour under heavily overcast skies, and considered myself lucky to get even that after driving through hours of dense, coastal fog in the late night/early morning hours. at Diamond Beach Ice Beach Iceland

The rare Super Blue Blood Moon at moonset over Twin Points in Laguna Beach, CA. By this point the eclipse had passed, and the pastel glow from the sunrise behind me lit up the sky beautifully. If you look close you can see people watching the moonset from beyond the points and across the bay in Crescent Bay Point Park at Crescent Bay

Growing up in New England there's a saying, that in truth is probably repeated in many places across the globe: if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes. In many respects it had kids true. Out here in southern California...the weather is usually pretty perfect, even though there's not a lot of variety. It's rare to see the sky filled with clouds, unless it's about to downpour. Even then, it's often just a wall of uniform gray. So now I’ve come to cherish every time the sky is filled with fluffy clouds and a variety texture ☁️ at County of Orange, California

A lot of people think I’m crazy when I tell them winter is my favorite time of year. Winter means different things to many people across the globe: snow, cold, rainy season, big swells... This is what winter looks like in the deserts of Joshua Tree N.P. Not bad if you ask me. at Joshua Tree National Park
