If I'm honest with myself I think nighttime and long exposure landscapes are my favorite. And when you put that together you get a work of art. I also haven't taken photos in a good minute so I think tomorrow is the day I go to the Golden gate bridge early and take some photos. That sounds like fun to me. What do y'all think?
--- VIDOVA GORA, BRAC, CROATIA (July 2018)
Took a day trip to the island of Brac via ferry from Split. Had the toughest time on this 4 hour hike - was probably the hardest I've ever done, due to the 30°+ weather and the 700m+ elevation. Probably didn't help that due to bad timing we started in the middle of the day, and with limited shade on the hike the uphill switchbacks felt never-ending. At least reaching the top felt immensely satisfying and like I had accomplished something big - conquering the highest peak in the Adriatic Islands!
This mongolian children shared their joyful laughter while chasing me through the steppe.
As children we understand deep within what life is all about: play, enjoy, eat, sleep, repeat.
We do our best to forget about this basic childhood knowledge while we get educated by teachers, parents and the society.
We can discover all this again when growing older. We just need to dig deep into ourselves to find the treasures which might have been sleeping for a while. And start to enJOY life just because we can. Because we decided to be happy.
Have worked and reworked this edit over and over. Spent some time with @rosssvhphoto to help me get it just right and I’m super happy with the results. If you’re looking for some help with your photoshop skills you should definitely hit him up.
The Mesquite Sand Dunes was one of my most anticipated areas of Death Valley, and it didn’t disappoint. The countless curves and patterns create endless compositions.
Even with the big wind storm from the previous day, we had to hike out quite a bit to find a place without any footprints. I set up on this ridge about 30 minutes before sunrise and started to line up a composition. I was looking for a good spot with plenty of curves to catch the morning light.
As the sun began to break over the mountains, I was not disappointed. The southeast side of the dunes lit up with morning sun. The temperature rose 25 degrees in about 15 minutes, and I yet again remember that we were in a desert.
If you visit Death Valley, definitely spend some time at the Dunes. And don’t be afraid to spend some time hiking out past the other visitors to find some unmarked ridges. ———————————————————————
