Got out of work late yesterday and then checked the GPS, traffic was set to be brutal with the 60 freeway under construction ... then Supertramp came on the radio ... yup, you guessed ... I “took the long way home”. So stoked, left feeling pumped after a long day and 400 miles behind the wheel. . . . . . #joshuatree #jtnp #joshuatreenationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #rawcalifornia #findyourpark #nationalparkobsessed #wanderlust #fujilove #skyporn #fujifilmglobal #sky_lovers #sky_brilliance #fujigfx #igers #natureprimeshot #ig_landscape #amazingearth #createcommune #nature_good #natureprimeshot #ig_sunsets #visionofpictures #instagood #earth_reflect #earth_shotz #epiccaptures #nature_sultans #nature_shooters

A year ago today, for was lifting at Chisos @bigbendnps and bear activity was spotted just around the corner before getting to the Lost Mine trail. Recent heavy rains also left the park covered with wildflowers and a lush green cover.

Hello goodbye, sunrise sunset, here comes the sun and there she goes again ... so many lyrics come to mind. This sunrise and sunset were taken from the same spot and n the same day, a few days ago from a small pier at the mouth of the mighty Rappahannock River and the even mightier Chesapeake Bay where I spent the weekend. It was the calmest most beautiful day ever and I witnessed it in it’s entirety. Now I’m back in my crazy life again ... but packing for the next adventure, a roadtrip to the “southwest”! Stay tuned ... but enjoy our last warm sunny days while they last! ☀️☀️☀️ #zendays . . . . #chesapeakebay #rappahannockriver #whitestoneva #beautifulearthpix ourbeautifulplanet🌍 #wanderlusttribe #traveltribe #amazingearth #wanderlustingheart #womenwhotravel #stayandwander #awakethesoul #exploretheglobe #postcardsfromtheworld #ourplanetdaily #traveldeeper #travelnow #travelpassion #roamtheplanet #welivetoexplore #womenwhophotograph #instagood #instadaily #travelholic_insta #iphonephotography

Long exposures take some time and with each shot you're forced to sit, wait, and remain patient. It becomes meditative. Not in the sense that you're becoming more zen, but you become more aware of the moment you're living in.

The #moon was in such an impressive position above this dead tree, as if it had wanted to say: "Look - the tree is not dead at all". So I was forced to at least make the tree immortal for me. - - - - - - - - - - - Der Mond stand in so einer eindrucksvollen Position über diesem toten Baum, als hätte er sagen wollen: "Sieh mal - der Baum ist gar nicht tot". So war ich gezwungen, den Baum zu mindest für mich unsterblich zu machen. #amazingphotohunter #amazingearth #landscapephotography #landscape #LandscapeLovers #BeautifulLandscape #NakedPlanet #LandscapeHunter #Sky_Captures #ScenicView #SkyScape #LandscapeShot #Landscape_Specialist #Splendid_Earth #Outdoors #Earthpix #DiscoverLandscape #AwesomeGlobe #IGRefined #Earthescope   #wonderful_places #wonderfulplaces #beautifuldestinations #deadwood #sossusvlei #namibia

Milky Way and Thunderstorms. *** The stars shone bright in that special night. Thunder struck the horizon above the Sicilian Mediterranean. I set up my tripod, feeling dizzy from the rich red wine and just shot with the XF 16mm wide open at f/1.4. My headtorch came in handy to illuminate the rocks in the foreground. *** Single exposure, no brackets or multi exposures / stitching. *** Camera: Fujifilm X-T3 Lens: Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR f/1.4 | 13s | ISO 1.000 Gitzo Traveler Tripod #framedongitzo Capture One Pro #captureonetravel *** #milkywaychasers #longexposureoftheday #germanroamers #fujifilmfeaturetime #fujifilmde #fujilovers #photopills #natgeospace #ig_worldclub #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #nightphotography #nightimages #night_excl #milkywaygalaxy #milkyway #longexposure_shots #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #fantasticuniverse #astrophotography #astrophoto #amazingphotohunter #amazingearth #amazing_longexpo #longexposurephotography

• Renovado • Its been 5 months since we got back and I still cant believe I got the opportunity to experience Patagonia. It is truly one of the most majestic places I’ve ever visited. I very rarely ever want to revisit destinations (save Moab, DV and Banff; especially those that require three plane rides and a long ass car ride) but Patagonia is a special place and I look forward to a return trip in the very near future (🤞). Another look at one of the easier sights to see in and around El Chalten. Chorillo del Salto offers no shortage of compositions and nooks and crannies to explore and photograph. I had hoped for a more interesting sky but at least my foreground didn’t disappoint! =========================== Canon 5D mk IV Canon 16-35 mm f/4 NiSi V5 Pro 3 Stop GND Filter 3LeggedThings Tripod f/11, 16 mm, 1.3 Seconds, ISO 320 5 exposures stacked for sharpness front to back ===========================

I've taken more photos of Monarchs than any other butterfly so when I looked up and saw this individual feeding on a goldenrod stalk right next to me I snapped a few pics and then continued past, thinking the backlight and overcast wouldn’t make for a great final result. After rediscovering this image recently the whole frame reminds me of an awesome pastel painting with blown out highlights that look like sparks on the flower tips. It really shows off the beautiful spotting and bold line detail of this iconic species. #monarchbutterfly #monarchbutterflies #monarch #monarchs #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #beautifulbutterfly #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #beautiful #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

The Black Swallowtail is the state butterfly of NJ and occurs in every county. While nectaring, their wings are in almost perpetual motion and at rest they usually absorb heat on the dorsal side. Luckily the wind brushed over this perch with a strong gust and then subsided causing this male to close his wings and display an amazing ventral view of the underside spots! The bokeh of the background reminds me of stained glass. #blackswallowtail #blackswallowtailbutterfly #swallowtailbutterfly #swallowtail #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #beautiful #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

This awesome Variegated Fritillary spent only a few seconds on the flower which was swaying in the gentle summer breeze. I took a few steps closer but the butterfly flew off, disappearing deeper into the meadow. I only see a few a year and capturing the underside of the wings is very difficult. I love the mottled yellow-orange coloration. #variegatedfritillary #fritillary #fritillarybutterfly #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #bugsofinstagram #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

Ты слышишь, как шумит ночной прибой? Прибой волны на нашем побережье. И блеск луны дорожкою морской, Уводит вдаль на крыльях в неизвестность… Туда, где радугой заполнит жизнь, Палитрой красочной и в переливе: Где смех и радость, воплотит любовь, Дом счастья — изумрудным бликом… Зажгут лампады негасимых звёзд, Все наши грёзы, лунными ночами, И только с чувствами духовный рост… Оставит наши позади печали!

О, горный водопад — Хрустальных брызг полет, Ты родился в горах И устремлен вперед. Возник ты, как родник, В расщелине скалы, Остановись на миг Мне свежесть подари! А в капельках твоих В них радуга живет, Как солнышко горит Хрустальных брызг полет. Пусть годы пролетят И встретимся мы вновь. И снова водопад Родит в горах любовь!

If I had to choose my favorite image, this might be the one.  It was a perfect fall day with a soft breeze causing waves over the top of the goldenrod field.  This American Lady butterfly flew in as the sun was setting and flitted around a bit before choosing this spot.  I think the wing detail and colors rival any lepidopteran species. #americanladybutterfly #bestnatureshot #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #color #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #bugsofinstagram #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

My next 9 posts will feature some of my favorite ever photos of local butterflies.  Though they aren’t considered rare in the state, I’ve probably been out hiking with my camera a thousand times during their flight season and have only seen this species twice.  The aptly named Great Spangled Fritillary has a regal look and bold shimmering spots that really shine in direct sunlight.  This image has to be one of my all time favorites! #greatspangledfritillary #fritillary #fritillarybutterfly #butterflies #butterfly #butterflyphoto #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyphotography #colorful #instabutterfly #lepidoptera #njnature #njwildlife #pollinator #wildnewjersey #wildnj #amazingearth #bestnatureshot #bugsofinstagram #earthgallery #nature_brilliance #naturelovers #nature_nj #nature #nature_perfection #wildlife_inspired #wildlifeperfection #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet

We travel because distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something inside us has changed, and that change is everything. (1/3)

One day at work someone mentioned there was a large bug visible through the window. It was really cool viewing from inside but I had to run out and get a better look. I was completely stunned by the pink and yellow wings of this female Imperial Moth. My reflection in the glass made for a cool effect as I took a ton of pics with my phone. When I came back inside everyone asked why I spent so much time out there. I showed them the images they couldn’t believe it.
