•⁣⁣ •🐋✨☁️• Elusive Elegance •⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What you’re seeing here is one of the most magical moments I’ve been fortunate to witness as a photographer. We sat on a rocking boat for hours at a stretch, eyes pinned to the horizon in search of whale fins while simultaneously trying to keep our breakfast down 🤢. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And then it happened. The spray of water from this baby whale’s blowhole startled the whole boat. We began to scramble like mad men, searching for our masks and fins, making sure our housings were tightly locked and good to go.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So as not to disturb the whales we have to gently slide into the water about 100m away and then awkwardly swim with cameras in tow until we’re as close as our instructor allows us to the whales.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The mum and calf pictured here only gave us one pass, but one pass was was enough to leave my jaw at the bottom of the ocean 😯. They played on the surface of the water basking in the warm sunshine before elegantly gliding downwards in a stunning spiral towards the depth of the ocean below us. On their way down, I managed to snag this shot of their bellies glinting against the mid-morning light before they completely disappeared. It was truly something to behold. Something I won’t soon be forgetting. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ @tahititourismenorthamerica you are truly stunning.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

• •🌴✨☁️• Cloud Cutter • #Ad. I can’t wait to re-visit Indonesia again. Every couple of months, I need to get my fix and fly over to this island for delicious food, jungle vibes and dirt bike adventures. With my Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® card from @citibank + @americanair, I’m able to use the miles I earn towards travel to over 1,000 destinations worldwide. So I’ll be able to satisfy my craving for the tropics and revisit my favorite country again soon. #travelon Stay Adventurous Dear Friends.

I can remember wanting a photograph myself for the memory and trying to get one taken but not knowing what to do with my hands.

• •✨⛰🛥• Shade Shifter • Super big tip here, if you ever get the chance to visit Bora Bora, make sure to grab a window seat on the left side on your inbound flight (right side for outbound flights). If you can make it in before the other passengers hustling for the seats, You’ll be graced with this absolutely fantastic neck-breaker of a view. Bonus points if you seat as close to the cockpit as possible, that way your view isn’t obstructed by the engine turbines. I’ve already been 2 years in a row and I’m already planning a trip back. There’s just something about French Polynesia. @tahititourismenorthamerica Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

Head over to his page for a fresh dose of cozy anime and vibrant foliage. They don’t call him The King of fall for no reason. It’s always interesting to see how different fellow creatives photos come out even though we’re given the same conditions and locations. Head over to Ryan’s page to his version of this photo.

• •🍁✨🛶• Lazy Lounging • Me; taking a well deserved break after an afternoon of leaf launching and petty paddling. If you didn’t see my story from a couple of weeks ago, I had the bizarre idea of filling the little man made reservoir behind the beautiful @kabin_vt with stunning and vibrant leaves. 25 bags of raked colorfulness later, this was the result. It’s always so satisfying to bring an idea to fruition after you’ve had it sitting in the back of your mind for months. I’d love to try more bizarre photo concepts like this. Anyone have any suggestions ? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

• •✨🕺🏾☁️• Storm Strider • I found this absolute gem while scrolling through my Indonesian archives taken by my buddy @jamesrelfdyer. That mountain in the background is Mt Batok, right next to Mt Bromo, my absolute favorite place on the planet. Here’s a couple reason why it’s my favorite. It’s easily accessible. It takes only a 20 minute drive to get there from the nearest village with homestays and hotels. It’s a local favorite. Hundreds of classic Toyota cruisers (like the one pictured ) visit this stunning landmark a day. Perfect opportunity to meet beautiful Indonesian people equally as stoked for the outdoors as you are. If you’re more of a solo adventurer and you’d like to get away from the crowds, just an additional short 10 minute walk to the other side of the volcano rim will put you far from everyone in the place. It’s extremely raw and wild. After walking up the series of stairs on the side of the volcano, you’ll be able to see bellows of volcanic gases spewing out directly from the inner crater rim. ABSOLUTELY BONKERS!! The place is honestly so wild. It feels like it absolutely should be off limit to random tourists like myself..... but it is not. I can’t wait to visit it again.

• •✨ ❄️ ☁️• Winter Watcher • This shot was from earlier this year in the absolutely teeth shattering and freezing Finish Lapland. I’m very highly considering skipping winter this year and running away to the Southern Hemisphere to enjoy a second round of warm ocean swims and time in the Sun. However I’m going to have to sacrifice 2 week sometime soon to chase a very cold region full of snow, ice, fog to get a little bit of winter inspiration. But I have no idea where to go. Any suggestions ? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •
