So since I found my original eclipse files I decided to play with them a bit. Considering I was just taking pictures from beginning to end and had no intentions of shooting for a timelapse, I put these together to see what would happen. Lmk what you think.

When theres light at the end of the tunnel, the result can often be quite spectacular... Especially if you've been in the tunnel for a very long time.

Photographer and Artist Shoutout from @artistcasa Posted @withrepost@_mcastaneda_ Throwing back to last year when I finally crossed this place off my bucket list. I may need to document the journeys to some of these places also because the blowout i had at the end of this hike was pretty epic and has my buddy laughing everytime it comes up in convo.

Iceland is a country that is defined by its water and You dont understand just how alive and evolved this planet is until you take flight above this beautiful island. From above, the tributaries of its rivers look like icy fingers and the mineral deposits from its glacial runoff gives it an almost futuristic look that has only been mastered through millions of years. I must say that I absolutely love how much the people of this great country care for their land. Its not easy to survive there beyond the city and those who do understand that the land is vital to their success. I really wish the rest of the world could awaken to this idea. To see how the planet we live on is just as alive as we are and understand how it has perfectly evolved in such a way that all of us can safely exist. Water is our lifeline yet we continue to pollute it without a care in the world. Hopefully we can come together to prevent further damage before we get to the point where we do it because we have to. @bankofthewest #capturethechange #contest Taken with Sony A7RII using 24-70 GM 2.8 lens #BeAlpha f/8. 1/800. 200 ISO. 53mm -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- www.michaelcastaneda.com -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- #SonyAlpha #YourShotPhotographer #ig_world_colors #icelandic #iceland #riverart #aerialphotography #wheniniceland #beyondthelands #outdoorphotography #exploretheworld #capture_today #adventureenthusiasts #MoodyGrams #AGameofTones #moods_in_frame #ourplanetdaily #michaelcastaneda at Iceland

Some roads are just fun to drive down. Tag a friend you'd love to travel down this one with or comment your a road you think is worth driving.

Finally, we had a sunset last night that turned into a real burner... Too bad for me during the good parts I was stuck combing the beach trying to find where my phone mightve slipped out of my pocket. Luckily I found it though it was absolutely getting blasted by the incoming tide. Glad phones are waterproof now cause it was prob there for a good 30 minutes or more Taken with Sony A7RII using 24-70 GM 2.8 lens #BeAlpha f/8. 1/16 64 ISO. 24mm -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- www.michaelcastaneda.com -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- #SonyAlpha #YourShotPhotographer #ig_world_colors #pismobeach #montanadeoro #sunsets #surfing #visitcalifornia #visitslo #sunsets #colorfulsky #centralcoast #sanluisobispo #outdoorphotography #exploretheworld #california #cali #MoodyGrams #AGameofTones #moods_in_frame #ourplanetdaily #michaelcastaneda at Montaña de Oro State Park

So glad spring is in the air. Its much easier to take photos when you dont have to wear tons of apparel. There's no question that the Florida boy in me is coming out and ready to be consistently warm again for a while. Oh and yes I do shoot people, families and pets....usually in pretty awesome settings.

Ok people so Ive been thinking that I want to incorporate people into my shots more so that I can showcase the scale of some of these places I get to explore. The thing is I kinda like it without people also. Here comes my good friend IG to the rescue. Which shots do you prefer out of these four? Also big shout out to @stepman for taking us out to this cave and to @icelandpremiumtours.is for referring me to him. I recommend everyone who travels to iceland to reach out to one of these two for your adventure needs, the first being more private tour and the latter being better for a larger group tour.

We decided to drive to HOH rainforest while in Washington only to be greeted with a barrier for a road washout near the visitor center. No worries though. The views were still amazing up to that point but I gotta say the drive was only mildly scenic 🤣🤣 Taken with Sony A7RII using 24-70 GM 2.8 lens #BeAlpha f/8. 1/160. 500 ISO. 70mm -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- www.michaelcastaneda.com -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- #SonyAlpha #Washington #hohrainforest #roadtrip #road #rainforest #snow #winter #winterishere #traveltheworld #adventureenthusiasts #outdoorphotography #outdoors #optoutside #washingtonstate #hiking #hikingculture #hikingadventures #michaelcastaneda at Hoh Rainforest

In celebration on @natgeo reaching 100 million followers I've decided to submit this photo for entry into the #natgeo100contest When trying to think of which photograph is most Natgeo inspired thousands of photographs come to mind, yet to me this one always sticks out above the rest. Before this shot was taken, I was doing light travel and using my phone and entry level products for photography. 2 years prior to that I was in Florida focusing only on my job as a golf professional. I will be the first to admit that I hated the idea of nature and even went as far as saying that the reason we built cities was to make sure we never returned to nature. Its hard to reminisce on how young and naive I was back then; but without those years, I wouldnt be able to appreciate the world the way I do now. When I finally won a permit to visit the ever elusive Wave in Arizona, I upgraded my camera with a new lens and decided at that moment that I wanted to use photography as a fuel to continually explore the parts of the world I had once shunned. Though my current equipment and gear far exceeds what I had for this shot, this one will always stand out to me as a marker for when my life changed and when my mind molded to become the person I am today.

@_mcastaneda_ Sometimes you need to see the world in a different way to humble yourself back to reality. Years ago I didnt recognize that and found myself married to my job. Nothing else in the world mattered. After quitting that and selling virtually everything I owned, the destination for me was West. West was actually supposed to be Hawaii, but Los Angeles ended up being the stop. I met some amazing people along the way and found a passion that I didnt even know existed. Now, for me, life is comprised of trying to stay connected to this rock we call home and photography has become a means for me to help share its glory and maybe inspire others to take a just couple steps outside of their normal routine.

Theres just something about this place that always draws me back. Ive done this hike 3 times now and have yet to get bored with it. Gotta admit though that I'm not a fan of the initial decent and final ascent; but the payoff here is always worth the price of admission.

Step back to a few years ago when I visited Shi Shi beach in Washington. Had no clue what I was doing camera wise and still dont but the passion to explore was just beginning to grow. Seeing the world in these new ways and trying my best to capture them for others has become way more than just a hobby; moreover, it's become a standard by which I live my life according to. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- www.michaelcastaneda.com -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- #SonyAlpha #YourShotPhotographer #Washington #pnw #beach #purplesky #travel #explore #shishibeach #michaelcastaneda at Shi Shi Beach
