Most of what we pour our heart & soul into goes unnoticed. Lost in an endless thumb scroll of beautiful & inspiring images or funny memes. But occasionally you have to just tell people to Stop.. take a second, and stare. Because the effort requires it.
The story is always the same.. a beautiful landscape that's being threatened. But this time around I realized that after shooting these rivers for years & years the lingering question is always, "what am I looking at?" So I aimed to bring scale to these otherworldly landscapes. We chased down a yellow piper cub from 2,000 ft above... quickly banking left & right to stay in a sort of formation while my jet-lagged stomach felt like it was about to hurl at every G-force turn. My assistant @_ryanhill_ & I occasionally glanced at each other with a slight smirk & head shake knowing that our dream of pulling this off was coming to life. The cameras couldn't keep up with how much we wanted to push the shutter... and after a awhile our fingers would go completely & totally numb. .

Eternal thanks to my good friend @volcanopilot for making this come to life for me. Excited to share the story over time.
High above the clouds ☁️The #BDTeam spent a week exploring Seattle and everything Washington State had to offer. We found viaducts, cabins, wild coastlines and much more as we drove around the lush green landscapes 🍃 #beautifuldestinations (📷: @jacob)
