From a beautiful evening with beautiful weather, a few thousand feet above the sea. Solitude was easy to come by up here. I miss it. But, I’ll be back, before too long. I’ve recently realized that I need the ocean. I dream of it, constantly. Even when I’m there. So, until then. See you sometime, see you soon @eddiebauer #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure

Today, I sat down at the barber in San Luis Obispo, California. The barber asked me “what are you up to after this?” I replied “I don’t know.. maybe driving to Utah?” He laughed and said “well, I certainly wasn’t expecting that answer “. But, that’s just life lately. Unexpected. And I wouldn’t have it any other way @eddiebauer #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure

Left Carmel today. Stayed there for over a week. It was my first time being truly alone, ever. I’ve always either been around friends or had a job I went to every day. But, not here. Didn’t know anybody at all. I realized.. you really learn a lot about yourself when you’re alone. It’s been good. Went to this beach every morning to start my day. Some were grey, some were colorful. The waves were always rolling and the birds were always soaring around them. One of the most relaxing places I’ve ever been, and one I’ll never forget. Till next time

Massive sets rolling in last night in Monterey, California. Until the last month or so, I’d never spent an extended period of time near the ocean to photograph it. Quickly learning that it is one of my very favorite things to see, take photos of and be around, in general. Always beautiful, always different, always peaceful. It’s been a huge source of inspiration for me lately. Also, just threw this one in the print shop. There’s about 12 hours left to get 20% off your order (use code ‘avocado’ at checkout). And, just wanted to say an overwhelming thank you. Your support helps me every day. Cheers 🌊 #WHPinspiredby @instagram

Been hanging in Carmel, California this past week- the most beautiful of beach towns. Ansel Adams himself lived here. The pioneer of the type of photography I strive to create. Edward Weston lived here, too. There’s a rich photographic history in the area, been really cool to immerse myself in it. And, going to this beach every morning has been a dream. Also, added this and the other photo from this morning to my shop. Print sale ends tomorrow, at midnight 🙏🏻#WHPinspiredby @instagram

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the person who bought five of my prints this morning. You seriously made my week. And, on that note, I have two days left on my print sale. Use code “avocado” for 20% off. Also started shipping to Canada yesterday. Had no idea that wasn’t an option on my checkout page already 🤷🏻‍♂️. Anyways.. thanks everyone, as always, for your continued support. Means the world to me 🙏🏻 Link in bio (also, this photo is available)

This morning was lovely.  Golden rays, piercing through the mist kicked up by the crashing surf. Seriously magical. I’ve been really, really thankful for this beach the last week. The new year didn’t begin exactly as I planned, but that’s ok. It’s been really nice to have this place. Started a rigid morning routine- something I’ve never ever done before. I quote a friend of mine when I say “it’s a cheat code for life”. Try it out.. you’ll see what I mean. But yeah, life is crazy. Life moves as fast as the waves sometimes. I’ve recently come to learn that, no matter what, you just have to ride. Ride the wave, see where it takes you. Hope everybody is having a nice start to the year

Pretty in pink. And blue. Big waves, big sunrises and an overwhelming sense of peacefulness out here on the central coast of California.. a very special place to me. Had some print requests for this one- link in bio 🌊

A lovely morning hanging at the largest alpine lake in North America, Lake Tahoe. My first time visiting. Spent a few days there, would love to return in the warmer months to really get to know the place. Definitely some of the bluest water I’ve ever seen 🌊 @eddiebauer #ebcontributor #liveyouradventure

It’s a dark, wet and very windy night out here on the coast. Holed up in my four-wheeled metal tent, drinking hot tea. Eating some hummus. Listening to the rain fall on the roof. The loveliest sound, one of my favorites in the entire world. Gonna take some time away from the camera this week to work on the business side of things.  Gotta start on those goals I made for the year. Which gives me time to catch up on some photos from Yosemite. And Big Sur. And the Sierra. The desert, too. But, for the moment.. I’m just going to enjoy this beautiful, albeit unconventional, weather ⛈

The ocean, ever-changing, full of beauty and life. It’s always made me feel grounded. I don’t like to be away for too long. This particular morning I peered over the edge and, to my surprise, a peregrine falcon was also enjoying the view. It sat there for a few minutes, glancing between me and the water below. I was alone. Love when nature procures these perfect moments. Seems to happen a lot, down here
