“If I had the world to give...”
The idea for this image came to me the other night when I couldn’t sleep. It’s obviously a composition of several images. What’s unique to me is they were all taken very close to my hometown of Spokane, WA. The 20 image stack of the sky was taken about 20 miles south of town. It was my first time compiling a 35mm image stack of the Milky Way. The foreground (trees) was taken on Peone Prairie under a full moon back in 2015 when I had no idea what I was doing taking photos in the dark. Finally, the man proposing is my brother in-law @ian_sewell . My first, & probably last proposal I’ll shoot. 😉 I wanted something dreamy & ya I’ll say it, romantic. Tell me what you think?

Me at the lunar eclipse.
Sitting all by myself in the snowy landscape when it' totally silent and the lunar eclipse is happening ... that's not a bad place to be.
Hoping for some Northern Lights shots tomorrow night.

It took me a while to get to this bridge over the 5. The back roads were confusing, but I eventually reached my destination. I’ve been wanting to photograph from this bridge by the airport for quite some time. I got soaked from the rain, but it was all worth the effort.

I went to the North Jetty by Belmont today. It was about 53 degrees with a slight push from the wind. I arrived there dry, but left wet from the rain. I definitely had a great time. By the way, zoom in to the right of the photo and you can see a storm out in the ocean.
"Rapture" | Sigoldugljufur Canyon, Iceland | There are places so inexplicably beautiful that it becomes difficult to accept them as fully real. We've grown used to the ugly aesthetics of daily life and urban settings, and becoming enthralled with a natural landscape became unfortunately limited to the realm of movie theaters and imagination. And so we passively accept the lack of wonder and awe in our lives, missing the opportunity of realizing how a place like the Sigoldugljufur Canyon is quite real, and how witnessing it can transcend our senses and mentally transport us to a unique place, where "bliss" is no longer just a cliched word but rather a real body-deep experience.
Story: In 2017 I visited Iceland for the fourth time and for the first time finally had the chance to visit the Icelandic highlands. The Sigoldugljufur Canyon was one of the places I wanted to visit the most, located in the famous F208 road to Landmannalaugar, in a difficult to find location. Iceland is definitely the land of the waterfalls, but this canyon topped all the records, with more than a dozen waterfalls in one of its sections. After spending the end of the previous day shooting an overcast sunset at this place, as well as spending the night capturing the canyon with the northern lights above it, the best light finally came as the day awoke, with a beautiful sunrise light that just made my day. .
