Beautiful Views of California.

Driving some 4,000 miles in a couple of weeks. Hiking and exploring multiple national parks was a dream. I had wanted to do something like this for awhile. Being able to and being able to photograph it all was such a blessing. California has so many stunning views, it was amazing to see all the different topography of the land and to watch it change as we traveled. Here’s some photos from various parks and other parts of California. If you feel inclined to purchase any of my photos please visit the link.

Exploring Joshua Tree

The first day we arrived in Joshua Tree was amazing it was a nice change from Death Valley they are both beautiful but it was nice to see some vegetation in the desert. Being able to scramble around on the rocks and hike will there was a cool breeze was also nice. Joshua Tree is a dark sky park which made it easy to see the moon and stars so clearly.To purchase prints visit my website.

The Ancient one, Ancient Bristlecone pine.

I had decided to make the drive to the white mountains for a sunset hike at Ancient Bristlecone pine tree park. These trees are some of the oldest in the world being around 4,000 years old and older. The trail around the forest is staggeringly beautiful. The Dolomite rocks, strange blue pine cones and wind swept trees made for a surreal and special evening.

Exploring the desert.

Next on the road trip is Death Valley. It was a drastic change from Mammoth lakes but still very beautiful in its own way. I decided to hike earlier in the morning to see the sunrise and to try and avoid the heat. That being said I did go out one evening while it was 106 degrees. Death Valley is a place that surprised me with all it had to offer it’s a really amazing park. If interested in purchasing any of my photos visit my website or if you can DM.

Minimalism in North Ga Mountains.

Took an early morning drive to the north Ga mountains to shoot some minimalistic images and time-lapse. I used the sony 100-400 to isolate the mountains since it was slightly over cast. I really enjoyed watch the fog roll over the hills North Ga is such a fun place to explore.

North GA Morning Hike.

Early morning drive to one of my favorite spots to shoot in Ga, Hiawassee Ga. The drive up in to the mountains is breath taking with the fog rolling over the hills. When the weather is good natures healing powers are evident in it. For more photos and adventures follow my IG page and to purchase any of my photos click here to access my print shop.

Hidden Falls Cloudland Canyon.

Exploring more of this beautiful state park. Theres so much to see, I think I have found at least five waterfalls at this one park which is pretty cool considering sometimes you have to drive & hike a couple of hours just to find one. Cloudland is an amazing state park! This image is a panorama of a waterfall I discover while hiking to the bottom of the canyon.

Cloudland Canyon Cherokee Falls.

Hiking and exploring the beautiful Cloudland Canyon after a couple of rainy days. The storms brought have down pours which made for ragging falls. It was a lot of fun seeing this spot with the falls being so dramatic. On occasion the falls will dry up usually in summer months.

Exploring Gibbs Gardens.

Hiking around the local botanical garden in search of different compositions. However, these spots can sometimes be a bit crowded keep that in mind if you planning a trip. The scenery was a bit overwhelming everything was blooming and super vibrant, after struggling for a sec I landed on a couple of compositions that I really liked.
