Horsetails in the spotlight, Boulder Creek Wilderness, Oregon. Horsetails, or Equisetum, belong to an ancient genus that dominated the understory of Paleozoic-era forests, with some species griwing close to 100 feet tall. Many thanks to @andycripe for teaching me how to shoot in strong light by stepping down the aperture setting on my camera! #botany #horsetail #equisetum #eeriegreenglow #forestfinds #prehistoric #ferns #spring #oregon #cascades #pnw #ourpnw #ourpubliclands #landofumpqua #oregonexplored #cascadiaexplored #thatpnwlife #abstractnature
Mountains, ocean, and verdant forests. Just your average weekend on the Olympic Peninsula!

“Rocky Shores”. . . . Shot this composition on a gorilla pod to get as close to the ground as I could.... Ended up lying flat on my stomach for almost 45 minutes on and off getting hit by the small swells of river water. Might have been a little gross, but wanted to get the effect of the low angle sunset light hitting the rocks.
Went to Crown point to see if there would be a good sunset but it was a bust. The only fun was getting this flare and people watching. #creationphotography .us #jj_oregon #cascadiaexplored #getoutside_pnw #wonderful_places #bestoforegon #nikon #columbiarivergorge
Another June, another season of gorgeous roses in my yard the size of my hand😍🌹 I caught someone stopping to smell the roses in my yard this evening. It made my day! • • • • • #LF10K #pnwlife #pnw #upperleftusa #rosecity #exploregon #thepeoplescoast #pnwonderland #gardening #mylifeoutside #lifehappensoutdoors #keepitwild #natureaddict #cascadiaexplored #campingcollective #thegreatoutdoors #getoutside #oregonnw #travel #adventure #gardenfever #yardart #peachyposts #portlandnw #wanderout #roses
When I’m out on a run, even though I usually am training for an upcoming race I never get into too big a rush not to stop and enjoy the beauty I come across. For me the point isn’t just to hurry to some goal, climb a mountain as quick as I can but to enjoy and appreciate being in places like this. My feet are simply the tool to get me there. This was along Paulina Creek in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. #seenonmytrailrun #lovenature #iphonephotography #preservenature
Flooded forest. A very nice bonus on the way back from a cave was this flooded section of the forest on the edge of the lava field. The video shows a natural drain in the forest floor, formed by lava about 2000 years ago.
~Rapture~ Well after 3 years and a few failed attempts, I finally made it out here. My good buddy Jon and I sat here for about 3 hours just hanging out, playing cards as the light slowly made its way behind the trees. Unfortunately his ankle was in pretty rough shape after slipping in a creek at our previous stop, but that didn't stop him as we stood together to shoot this amazing scene. The way the water moves down the rock face, in and around the foliage is what makes this scene so interesting to watch. I will definitely return again in the earlier months of March or April to capture the runoff along the right side of these cliffs. Panther 5% Blur dot jpg
