THAT COMMUTE! we had quite the rain event overnight, with high winds and several inches of rain falling on Oregon. Portland was hammered this morning... felt like I was driving underwater at times. Just a quick video of the driving conditions as I reported on traffic from my office this morning in the Chevy Equinox LiveDrive...

Started my morning off with a quick line drawing ✍🏼 I decided to share some of the specifics/a time lapse with you all, just to shake things up! And, I get so many questions about what medium I use I wanted to respond to that as well. . Most of the drawings you see are completed on an iPad using Procreate and an Apple Pencil. I always use a bunch of different brushes to add texture, depth, and to improve on my overall skills! But for this, I only used studio pen for the entire drawing. each time I changed brush sizes, I marked it at the bottom :) . p.s. this is just the beginning of my Tuesday draw day - I have lots of drawings I plan on completing today and I will continue to share throughout the day☺️ at Eugene, Oregon

I took this photo back in March on one of my solo trips this year. I have taken many amazing trips but this one and Costa Rica were the last ones I did completely on my own. I typically do a lot more by myself but this year a lot of my friends have wanted to join me on my travels, and it’s honestly so awesome to have friends who want to share that. I love making memories with you guys and I don’t want diminish those experiences for a second! It’s been so fun! But I have to say there’s something about traveling solo that allows me to be so much more creative and in touch with myself and my surroundings. I really really miss my solo adventures. I think they have helped so much with my independence and my ability to be decisive. A lot of people have told me in the past that it seems so scary to do things on your own, or that they’d go crazy, get “lonely” (oh I hate that one 😂), or that “I’m so brave”. I think being alone is something that scares a lot of people and that honestly makes me sad. When you are 100% content in your own company, there is a certainty in that. You will ALWAYS be able to find joy. You are not dependent on others to generate happiness for you. Your happiness should only lie in YOUR hands. If you’re someone who hates being alone, I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and try to find what I’m talking about here because it’s kinda life-changing. When I’m by myself staring at these views I am wholly and completely at peace with my life. I definitely don’t feel lonely and any little problem I have just shrinks into nothing because it really is so small in the grand scheme of things. I’m gonna plan a long solo trip in 2019. I’ve got some ideas already but if you have any suggestions hmu. 🤙🏼 at Cape Kiwanda Beach

Spandex never sounds like a bad idea to me 🤷 I was soaking in a hot spring along my favorite river just after sun up on Saturday before running around the woods for a couple hours. Also, I'm cohosting a creative renewal + educational workshop on a lake in my favorite mountains of eastern Oregon next October so keep up if that interests you lol 🌲💚♻️ . . #whiteoakphotography #pnw #pnwphotographer #oregonengagementphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #meettheartist #creativerenewal #centraloregon #blueriveroregon #oregonexplored #thewandererscommunity #thedarlingmovement #thatsdarling #liveadventurously #liveauthentic #exploretocreate #exploremore #livepnw #hikeoregon #exploregon #northwestcreatives #northwestisbest at Oregon

Congratulations. 📸📸By @krl_photo #milkywayshooters My personal acc: @chasingescape “Legendary light zooming through the grid of life. Constantly connected, avoiding your neighbors’ strife. Take a look around and treasure what you see. Even the ‘luckiest’ of folks say “that could of been me”. Grateful is just a word ‘til you dissect and reflect. Words have strong meanings- your numbness may cause you to forget. The world moves fast - We’ve evolved to “sum things up”. Skim over too many moments- quickly trying to one-up. Breathe in each second and skip no chapters. For the one you miss, may be the one that truly matters”. -KRL- ——— @sonyalpha A7R iii @Sony 16-35 GM F/2.8 @manfrottoimaginemore Tripod 🏎 👉🏼 @meetchellford Composite ———- #earthfocus #nights_dreamworld #houseoftones #theoutdoorfolk #exploretocreate #timeoutsociety #oregonexplored #gearednomad #night_excl #allaboutadventures #theglobewanderer #night_shooterz #visualambassadors #pnwonderland #visualseduction #weekly_feature #adventuretocreate #milkyway #illgrammers #agameyoftones #heatercentral #way2ill #ourcolordays #pnw #depthsofearth #depthobsessed #feedbacknation #ig_color at Oregon

I wanted to build a van. Than I built a van. Now I can go on adventures and not worry about hotels or long drives ever again. Moral of the story: Don’t let things you want to do just stay things you want to do. Have things you want to do become things that get done. PHOTO: @hot_bev at Mccredie Springs, Oregon

Winter is the best time to crab in Oregon because adult Dungeness crab molt each summer. Do you know the difference between male and female? This info is from a series of interpretive panels that will be found around Tillamook Bay.

While this dizzying array of shapes and patterns can be quite overwhelming, there's also a challenge to be met and surmounted. It takes a bit of patience, some clever tripod yoga, and being ok with getting your feet frozen wet.⠀ ----------------⠀ C: @SonyAlpha a7R III⠀ L: @sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G⠀ T: @reallyrightstuff TVC-34L/BH-55⠀ E: @Adobe @lightroom CC iOS⠀ . ⠀ .⠀ . . . #pnw #upperleftusa #explorethegorge #shareyourparadise #traveloregon #oregonasm #columbiarivergorge #drippin_awesome #discoveroregon #bestoforegon #bestofnorthwest #awesomeearth #discoverlandscape #pnwonderland #oregonexplored #exploretocreate #nrthwst #cascadiaexplored #sonyalpha #jj_oregon #thatpnwlife #pnwcollective #sonyalpha #collectivelynorthwest #pnwroamers #mykgw #thegreat_pnw #pnwshooters #omht

This was in the outtake pile but I have grown to really love it. What an incredible year this has been. I know that’s cliche and everyone says that, but truly it has been remarkable. I saw three new countries this year. I jumped off mountains, trekked through rain forests, climbed mountain after mountain and yet those things aren’t what made it the most incredible year for me. It was YOU. All of you. Finding my place in this community surrounded by love, acceptance and encouragement is the greatest gift I could have ever gotten. So many of you that I met via this little app have turned out to be some of the best friends I could ask for. You have come with me to camp in unforgiving temperatures. You have hiked up mountains no one was prepared for. You have done some mild trespassing for the shot and jumped off cliffs into waters with me. You have all been there for me when I needed you. I have never been more grateful for anything as I am for this year of amazing friendships. Let’s go get it in 2019. at Mitchell, Oregon
