With landscape photography, sometimes you get the good shot and you know it, but other times you can’t help but feel like you’re walking away empty handed. I’ve also realized that if you take the photography aspect too seriously, you totally lose out on enjoying the moment. For me, it’s all about finding the right balance. 🌀📸 On this particular night I wasn’t too eager to get an awesome shot. Instead I wanted to just relax, crack a beer, and watch a cool sunset with @peter_pannnn and if by chance some cool looking colorful clouds showed up I’d be in a good spot to shoot them. So that’s what I did and as the sun went down nothing too special happened and I was totally ok with not getting a good shot that night. But just as I was justifying in my head that I could try again tomorrow morning, some crazy looking dude with a backpack on blasting music and singing to himself starting beelining it straight over a ridge in the direction of the sun, which got me thinking, I wonder what’s over there? 🌅 🌵 I started pushing a litte past where I was, testing out compositions. No that’s not quite right. Then I pushed further. Still not really that good. Ok now hiking over the ridge looks pretty doable I might as well see what’s over there. So I pushed just a little bit further, jogged up over the ridge with my gear because the light was going quick, and as soon as I got over the ridge: BAM EPIC MOAB DESERT SUNSET BEAUTIFUL COLORS CLOUDS STARING ME IN THE FACE. 😯 ☀️ I had stumbled right into a sick composition with the sunset in the background lighting up the entire desert floor. This was the kind of shot I had hoped for. With the sun nearly down below the horizon I didn’t have any time to think. I scrambled to set up my camera and tripod and was able to pop off just a couple shots. In the moment I had known that I had gotten something good, something I would be proud of. And because literally just a few minutes prior I was doubting myself and my landscape photo skills, this is the kind of photo that makes it all worth it. 🏆 😎 Tomorrow’s photo will be the last photo in my Moab series, and it was definitely the icing on the cake. 🎂 #punintended #thanksforreading

Endless graditute to our Earth's opportunity and abundance. Experiences near the temples such as the Great Sand Dunes, provide all the more reason for good stuardship. Clear blue sky's met with a clean crust is a must for any adventurous heart! 🌾🦉 #greaterneverlands #adventure #awaits #explore #travel #retreatyourself #colorado #nationalparkphotography #sanddunes
