Blanketed in white at the beginning of the year, Saguaro National Park... So glad I let the weather forecast dictate my itinerary—snow in Tucson is only a once-maybe-twice-a-decade event. It’s sobering, how something so ephemeral can seem so substantial, how it can seem to slow down time. We travel so often to soak up the sensation of moving through new scenery; it’s good to savor how the familiar can be made new, too, when we let nature frame nature... #PPframed @passionpassport #passionpassport #instagramaz_bw19 #ig_arizona #shotoniPhone #whpwanderlust #traveldeeper #travelstoke #arizonahiking #visitarizona #saguaronationalpark #findyourpark #wnpa1938 #puresw #hipstamatic #hipstadreamers #hipstamatictintype #hipstography #artistry_flair #mobileartistry #onlymobileart #the_folknature #divine_deserts #igsouthwest_bnw #jj_blackwhite #igersTucson #visitTucson #snowinthedesert #cactusportrait #SonoranDesert
Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness, you who seek the Lord: look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from which you were dug.-Isaiah 51:1
Pre six mile run today. 50 degrees is so nice! Lots of folks out enjoying it. You can't tell here but I was not feeling it today at all. I have in my schedule to do 8 miles but only cranked out 6.5 miles. Our post travel fatigue, sleep deficit is real! My legs weren't as steady and I rolled my ankle avoiding a horse shit pile. (I really wish they had to clean up, just like dog owners!) It was everywhere! ▪ ▪ ▪ #trailrunning #everytrailconnects #runningcommunity #queersofinstagram #newmexicotrue #purenm #westbysouthwest #landofenchantment #puresw #naturelovers #getoutside #getoutstayout #instatrail #staywild #runhappy #runmore #trailrun #trailrunner
It's easy to get caught up in going out of town to find cool things to see, but this view is only a 10 minute leisurely drive from my house. Don't underestimate the beauty of places that you overlook because they're in your own backyard. . . . . . . . . . . #utahgram #beaUTAHful #YOUtah #igutah #igsouthwest #utahunique #werutah #yesvisitutah #pureSW #lensbible #depthsofearth #nature_perfection #hubs_united #eclectic_shotz #natgeotravel #ig_color #moodygrams #forbestravelguide #jaw_dropping_shots #findyourpark #TLpicks #magicmarvels #usinterior #allbeauty_addiction #awe_inspiringshots #traveling_gram #master_pics #topcapture #stunning_shots #wonderful_places
Had a great time at Shaw Butte last weekend. Here's a drone shot looking at North Mountain, with Piestewa (Squaw) Peak in the background. Love this area and there are tons of trails. Make it a great weekend IG! ✌️ . Taken with my dji Mavic Air 🚁
Mornings in the Superstitions... On my favorite trail... To my favorite summit... What more could you want? Enjoy the incredible weather. Get some hiking in! ✌️ . Taken with my Nikon D3300 📸
I had some time to kill on my way to work the other day. I actually pulled off and set up my camera. It was quite foggy on this morning. Of course, all my settings were wrong and didn't notice until near the end... However, I did get some decent photos. My long exposure idea was a bust, but I'll take what I can get. Make it an incredible weekend IG! ✌️🔥 . Taken with my Nikon D3300 📸
I miss my dad, both grampos every single day and I can tell you as a husband, father, as a man, losing such amazing role models and mentors is something I've struggled with everyday. God gave us this man and he's been a consistent example on something we can all look up to. He teaches us so much it can't be qualified. It's not through his words, but rather his actions. He loves his wife(unconditionally), his family, he would do anything for anyone and never looks for recognition or praise. Goes about his business and has created a better life for his family and never has posted it on social media. He is hardest worker I know. He has a solid heart of gold. I pray for him daily and thank God for such a humble example in the flesh on how to be a leader and man of God everyday. I love you tio Benjamin. #family #love #portraitphotography #familyphotography #newmexicotrue #beautiful_newmexico #igersabq #newmexico_igers #newmexicolove #landofenchantment #newmexico #nm #purenm #igersnm #iamnewmexico #nmlife #nmgrammers #featurenewmexico #riogrande #bosque #sandias #gramofenchantment #purenewmexico #travelnewmexico #nmoutside #puresw #canonphotography #newmexico_lovers #newmexicobound #instagrammersnm

I really enjoyed doing Christmas minis and wildflower minis last year. I am wondering if there is any interest in snow or valentines(couples or women) minis at the end of January. I can't do both so which one has more interest??? . . . #kiss #daddysgirl #snow #nmphotographer #newmexicoseniorphotographer #glam #familyphotos #familygoals #newmexico #newmexicotrue #nmartists #liveauthentic #joy #lookslikefilm #nm_portraits #nm_igers #nmgrammers #purenm #puresw #thatsdarling #letthekids #candidchildhood

I got my act together last night, got out my Panda planner and planned my day down to what I am going to eat all day. Then I had so many ideas going through my head...not sleepy, so like a dufus I stayed up and watched an episode of Madame Secratery...and then just like that it was 1am when I went to bed. Of course I was tired and the kids had a 2 hour delay so I slept in ruinging my early start. The delay turned into school being cancelled. I am a planner by nature but also very much fly by the seat of my pants. It's a hard combo. I have learned...I mean am learning to roll with changes and be flexible, do my best and let the rest go. Making room for grace. I hope you give yourself the benefit of the doubt today too, missteps and all❤ Here's to making room for grace. Be nice to yourself today. . . . #backlight #newmexico #nmgrammers #nm_outdoors #liveauthentic #prettylight #goldenhour #lookslikefilm #thatsdarling #letthekids #nmphotographer #teen #cowboy #purenm #puresw #liveauthentic #beyou #nmtrue #portraitmood #igers
Driving home from dinner, I came across this face in my neighborhood. I don't know what it is, or why it's here. It's makes for a great picture though!!!
Hey guys! What did you think about the new set? Are you guys digging the three photo line up? Or should I go back to random? Let me know! (: and let’s schedule a shoot dm me 😁✌🏽
Barely escaping, making it through blinding waves of snow drift washing over me in the ski valley in my 2WD after a few days of 🏂 powder with family. Drive halfway up the road to The Bav when it’s dry, have a hell of a time coming down 🌬❄️. • • • #LastYear #FBF #Taos #IgersNM #NMTrue #TaosSkiValley #desert #highdesert #wildernessculture #earthpix #puresw #westbysouthwest #NewMexico #snow #powder #TaosHum #RioGrande #Rockies #SangreDeCristos #WhereTheRockiesBegin #optoutside #instagrammersNM #NMNomad #NewMexicoBlue #BlueShineState #cloudscape #clouds #stormscape
What I love most about the change I see in my 28 versus 18 year old self is how much more comfortable I am just being me: An outdoors-loving Ojibwekwe photographer, writer, and academic who shares whatever words and images inspire me with a bunch of internet randos and friends 😂 Happy Friyay—I hope y’all can get outdoors and enjoy a nice, long weekend! (I’m headed some place snowy 🏔)
Those curves 😍😂⛰ Boulder big enough to cover from the snow ❄ . . . #kcco #thechive #chiver #keepcalmandchiveon #purenature #hiking #forest #nature #outdoors #nmoutside #NMNomad #purenewmexico #PureSW
Exploring Fiery Furnace last summer. The shaded areas were a really nice break from the hot desert sun. Thanks @jbruckal for helping me show the scale....without knowing of course.
Days of thunder 🌩
Looking into the weekend like....
Friday! Time to #GetOutside & #ExploreArizona ...good for the soul, to look up at things bigger than ourselves... (I know this looks familiar, but with @instagramaz having announced their annual black & white challenge, just had to get these arms out there again) . . . #instagramaz_bnw19 #ig_arizona #blackandwhite #simply_noir_blanc #bnw_of_our_world #bnw_planet_2019 #shotoniphone #SonoranDesert #saguaro #cactusportrait #lookup #puresw #igsouthwest_bnw #sombrayluz #1415mobilephotographers #bnw_demand #outofthephone #thedesertiscalling @hippytree #52weeksofnature
I think lots of us humans grew up looking for images in the clouds at some point. Well that imagination stuck with me and I still find imaginary treasures here and there in more than cloudscapes. I was instantly drawn to this cute little imaginary mouse sitting inside a Saguaro cactus as soon as I saw it. The little treasures in life are so sweet and fun to stumble upon. All we need to do is look around to find hidden treasures placed everywhere by our Creator. The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become visible to us. Why do we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Is it because we see things so often, we see them less and less for what they truly are - treasures. Take time to stop and really look around you. There are so many hidden treasures in your life. Enjoy them. 🙌🏼
The desert never held a fascination for me, that is until I moved here 30 years ago. And now I can't get enough of it! Last night there was this amazing pink-blue sky, with a touch of moisture in the air. I just had to capture it and share. Loving this AZ weather! #weather #phxlocal #gratitudechallenge #azsunset #lovetheweather #nphxmoms #phxphotographer #azhiking #abc15arizona #instagramaz #puresw
After a rare light rain, a well dressed woman contemplated nature in Red Rock Canyon. Her husband was asleep in a large BMW in the parking lot while she ventured into the desert. Was she admiring the landscape or deep in thought? #redrockcanyon #desert #desertbeauty #desertlandscape #nikonnofilter #nikond5300 #nevada #peaceandquiet #naturesbeauty #walking #wanderlust #pathlesstraveled #outdoorlife #southwest #puresw #solitude #artistic #artistic #artsy #fineartphotography #wander #wandering #contemporaryphotography #surreal #surrealism #modernphotography #womaninblack #tranquil #specialplace #natgeoyourshot @natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer
