Face to face. Our first actual wintry day in awhile yesterday in the Front Range of Colorado. Headed up to Genesee to snap some shots of the buffalo herd. I spent almost 3 hours up there in the snow waiting for a moment like this. Patience is key, but it was beautiful to watch these majestic animals that are so synonymous with the western spirit.

•Ice Cream Sunrise• Theres something to be said about time in the desert, it can change you. It can alter your perspective of reality and life as you knew it. Time in solitude, and peace and quiet can help you reconnect with yourself and help you realign with your vision, and creativity. I have been and will be spending more time traveling, and exploring, visiting all of the amazing places left to see before they cease to exist, to record a time of their existence and document their being for future generations. Enjoy this new image from a very, very special place. The geological variation in such a small area is something Ive never experienced until this trip. You feel like you have stepped back in time 145 million years ago to the time of the dinosaurs. To learn how I visualized, captured and processed this image please consider joining me on a workshop! ================================================winter is an excellent time to visit the desert, with less crowds and chance for snow! Join me on a winter workshop or excursion!! ================================================Huge thank you for @nisiglobal @rea@reallyrightstuff @fstopgear @reallyrightstuff @gnarbox and @roofnest for all of their amazing support!! ================================================ #nikonphoto #nikonusa #big_shotz #myrrs #lazyshutters #exploretocreate #longexposure #nisiglobal #wonderful_places #ig_masterpiece #justgoshoot #optoutside #arizonaroamers #agameoftones #ig_exquisite #worldcaptures #inspiring_photography_admired #aroundtheworldpix #global_hotshotz #wildernessculture #amazing_longexpo #fstopgear #jaw_dropping_shotz #globalcapture #longexpoelite #landscape_lovers #ig_thisworld #longexposure_shots

John Ford con “La diligencia” o “Río Grande”. “El llanero solitario” actual, Forrest Gump, Regreso al futuro III, Transformers, Thelma y Louise y hasta Cars, más una larga lista de viejas películas del oeste, pero... Formarás parte de ese decorado cuando pises su tierra roja. Pero no creas, lo que inmortalizarás para SIEMPRE será tu recuerdo pero no a Monument Valley. Por que Monument Valley YA es inmortal.

These mountains remind me of massive stacked dominoes. The labyrinthine formations hide some pretty precarious looking towers. Walking amongst them I was imagining them being formed over millions of years by volcanic eruption and subsequent erosion, but also them eventually toppling and voilently rolling down the hillside into the bottom of the valley. Sometimes I wish I could set out a chair and watch the Earth transform. . . . . #instagramaz #hikearizona #roa#roadtriplife #letscamp #igsouthwest #keepitwild #findyourpark #theoutbound #naturephotography #goatworthy #exploremore #optoutside #getoutside #backpacking #adventureculture #wildernessculture #vanlife #homeonwheels #campervan #roadtrip #neverstopexploring #dirtbagdiaries #nikonnofilter #sigmaphoto

When the sun hits the formations at the canyon, it’s like nothing you have ever seen! I love our place. I never thought that I would feel this way, but after our river trip last year, that all changed. I hope everyone gets a chance to explore this place. Hearing the ravens as they fly by or the wind rushing up from below. Whether it’s from the rim or from the river, I promise you, it will change you forever. #changedforever #exploretocreate #ourplanetdaily #national_park_photography #lan#landscapephotography #landscape #igsouthwest #instagramaz #arizona #hikeaz #canyon #grandcanyon #nps #nationalparkgeek #sunrise #lifeofadventure #divine_deserts #arizonaphotographer #photooftheday #lovethis #❤️

Firestick Pencil Cactus 🌵. Who knew? The first time I saw this desert plant I thought it belonged under the sea! The plant produces a poisonous sap when cut, that can possibly lead to anaphylaxis. It’s fascinating how all desert plants are adapted to protect themselves from “predators!”. . . . #firestick #cactus #cactuslover #naturefacts #naturephotography #nature_up_close #orange

Your words are likely the part of you that will have the largest and most lasting impact. They can be sharper than any sword, stronger than any weapon, more destructive than you could possibly anticipate. They can also build bridges, heal wounds, strengthen the downtrodden, cause tears of joy and laughter, bring peace, encourage tomorrows leaders and bring peace to your little corner of the world. What effect will your words have? . . . #sunsets #ig_color #ourmoodydays #sky_central #sky_brilliance #my_sunset #total_sky #sky_love #sunset_pics #cloudscape #ig_skyvibes #instasky #loves_all_sky #sky_collection #sky_captures #cloudsession #fingerprintofgod #globalpixels #eternalized_moment #exceptional_pictures #nature_obsession_landscapes #global_beautiful_pictures #eye_for_earth #utahgram #igutah #wowutah #werutah #igsouthwest #xputah #beutahful

Just east of Phoenix, the 700-year-old Tonto cliff dwellings are nestled high above Roosevelt Lake, surrounded by Tonto National Forest. Home to the prehistoric Salado people, you can still see the handprints of the ancient builders permanently imprinted in the walls. #tontonps #findyourpark #goparks #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #usinterior #nationalmonument #arizona #fypyes #optoutside #theoutbound #wanderlust #igsouthwest #igarizona #explorearizona #exploremore #arizonacollective #instagramaz #discoverarizona #adventureawaits #americasbestidea #az365 #thegreatsw #arizona_landscapes #arizonaisgorgeous

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis 🦋🦋🦋 And we did just that. In an industry that forces a time stamp on success & punishes quiet humility, we fell hard for the perceived notion that one failure is the end of the dream. Turns out, life keeps going. The sun keeps rising. People who you thought would always be a part of your future become distant memories of a life you once thought you needed. The ego heals itself like the ever-sweeping sand dunes to reveal a smooth new beginning. And the life-death-life cycle reveals itself once more. If you’re struggling to start over in January like we did, take a few minutes to remind yourself of the wonderful beauty in self-evolution. -Cass . . . #reflections #ego #dreamcatcher #jonnyandcass #liveauthentic #igsouthwest #nomadlife #instagood #wanderlust #sprinterdiaries #adventure #igoutdoors #getoutside #explore #nature #instatravel #travelbug #traveldiary #hikingculture #optoutside #neverstopexploring #livefolk #roadtrip #travelgram #weliveelevated #vsc#vsco/a> #weekendwarriors #january #vsco

I never take these Arizona sunsets for granted. As much as I’ve traveled, it’s hard to say that I’ve seen more beautiful sunsets than the ones I consistently see at home. I took this at an awesome photography meetup and met some really great people @bvsphotogsquad and I got to meet a photography idol of mine. @brendanvanson dude I swear the wild horses are real... #bvsquad #arizona #weroamarizona #abc15 #sunsets_arizona #conquerarizona #visitarizona #igsouthwest #divine_deserts #swimages #puresw #westbysouthwest #bns_landscape #earthexclusive #eclectic_shotz #jaw_dropping_shots #earth_shotz #exceptional_pictures #placestotravel_s #benro #planet_earth_shots #top_world_shot #usaprimeshot #global_creatives #globeshotz #instagood

Day’s end.... This small group of 3 wild horses filled their bellies with eel grass from the Salt River as the sun turned everything around them beautiful shades of gold and orange. I couldn’t recognize the signal, but together they turned and made their way out of the river, and up into the hills for the night. Sigh....

After missing it last year, my wife and I made it out for the final night of Zoolights at the Phoenix Zoo. My favorite part is always the light show on the pond.

In the past month I’ve driven over 3,200 miles and 50 hours. I drove from Denver to Minneapolis to Phoenix. I’ve always loved to road trip but I’ve always been the passenger. This was the first time I’ve ever slept in a hotel room alone! And I’ve had a blast. But as much as I’ve enjoyed myself, it’s still always better to have a companion. I now have my daughter with me and, though we are still on the road, it feels like home.

Excited to share this one. This is definitely a post card photo here. I'm in the process of getting a hold of someone with graphic design experience to draw up some options for me, for a post card using this photo. "Greetings from Phoenix", "Phoenix, wish you were here", "The valley of the Sun welcomes you to Phoenix." Something like that. I'm really happy with how this turned out, and even a professional buddy of mine was impressed with this. Let me know what you think!🤙 @12newsaz #BeOn12 #azfamily #instagramaz #igersphx #westbysouthwest #IGsouthwest #abc15 #ipulledoverforthis #divine_deserts #fox10phoenix #postcardsfromtheworld #sunsetphotography #tv_clouds #capturearizona #ExploreArizona #az_living_ #azculture #canon_photos #sky_captures #rebelsky #beautifulviews #natgeoyourshot #skyline #aviation #splendid_shotz #weownthenight_az #arizonaphotography #dreamworldimages
