The closer I am to being a father the more I have found myself reflecting on some pretty incredible experiences I have been apart of over the last couple of years. One such trip that really plays with my heartstrings was a trek up to Oregon and living out of the back of my car. Hitting the road I had my mind set on seeing waterfalls and luscious landscapes. Toketee, Crater Lake, Rowena Crest.. you know, the classics. However, while weather in Southern California is relatively predictable, the PNW is not. @rsphotolog @cthirteenphotography @kentcthis and @oregonsandrat found this out while trying to find a semi-decent, clear night along the coast. The weather was rough and the sky was murky, but Mother Nature had something else in store for us that evening on the Pacific. From a pull out off along the 101 where we waited for Josh to meet up with us, as the sky turned dark and we started to focus on capturing the Milky Way, I believe Kent was the first to mention what he was noticing on the beach. "Is that bioluminescence?" I stopped the time-lapse I had started, looked at my screen and instantly bolted for the water, drenched up to my knees, I watched as every step I took the red seas lit up like LA Gear shoes from my child hood. The joyous hollering and laughing slowly took over this small group and while photography was on my mind, the memories of running around in low tide to start my Oregon trip off will stay with me forever. ================================= I caught Rudy in the moment enjoying a little time with the algae.

It’s crazy to think that prior to my road trip with my father he had never seen photos of Monument Valley before. Well after this unexpected surprise from our hotel room at The View, I’m not sure we will forget very soon.

Nearly 15 years ago my old man told me he wanted to visit the Grand Canyon one day. After periodically hearing him bring it up and us just never planning anything, we finally made it happen. I’ve been on many adventures over the last few years. A lot have been very social media inspired that while I am appreciative I got to experience, nothing compares to the joys of sharing why I make the 2:30am wake up calls for sunrise with my father. ================================= ⌁ Location: Grand Canyon, AZ ⌁ Camera: @sonyalpha A7III ⌁ Lens: @canonusa 70-200mm f/2.8L I IS USM ⌁ Filter: @hoyafilterusa EVO Anti-Static Polarizer ⌁ Tripod: @slikusa Pro 934CF ================================= #hoyatough #teamslik #earthofficial #eclectic_shotz #roamtheplanet #ShotzDelight #lonelyplanet #nakedplanet #depthsofearth #sunrise #skyporn #grandcanyon #morning #grandcanyonnationalpark #cloudporn #skylovers #tree #landscape_lovers #sunshine #landscapephotography #grandcanyonnps #instasky #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #horizon #arizona #mothernature #weather #landscapelovers #landscape_captures

Are you struggling with blending multiple images in Adobe Photoshop and looking for a very simple tutorial? Well here's one for you! @calebwallace provided me with this sequence of shots from one of his trips up to Washington and asked me for some help with piecing them together using @adobe @Photoshop. This quick video hopefully will lay the groundwork for you to jump in with blending your own work!
