2017 has been a great year for me in terms of photography. I hiked many miles to discover new locations, learned new photography and editing techniques, and waited countless hours just to get the perfect lighting for the shot. I got really busy toward the end of the year, but I’m hoping to get back into it as the new year begins. My transition from California to the Pacific Northwest went well. It’s a blessing to be here and a landscape photographers dream. Thank you 2017 and thank you all for your support! Looking forward to what adventures 2018 will hold. 😊

It's been raining here in Washington. While some people don't like the rain, I quite enjoy it. The water brings out such beauty in nature like this amazing waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge. It is the same with God. By letting Him reign in your heart, you allow Him to nourish your soul. He alone can give you that water of life, and just like Panther Creek Falls, your life will be a beautiful testimony of God's love reigning in you.

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:16-19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

"Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. "But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!"
Luke 12:27-28

I've successfully moved from California to the Pacific Northwest! On my first weekend my friend @johnchophotography took me to Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. Such a beautiful place filled with wildflowers and awesome views of the volcano. Looking forward to exploring these parts and sharing it through the eyes of my lens.

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
Isaiah 40:26

This was a night I’ll never forget. Not only was I able to capture the entire Milky Way arch for the first time, but earlier in the night my tripod and camera fell from a cliff 3 stories high to the rocks below. I was devastated. I thought my night was over before I could even attempt to capture the Milky Way shot I wanted. It turned out that while my lens was broken, my camera was able to still shoot in manual mode. I ended up making friends with Dimitry, a photographer from Los Angeles. He was one of many photographers who showed up at Arch Rock with the same plan as me. He graciously let me borrow his Rokinon 14mm lens for a few min. I was so thankful! I was able to attempt the panoramic shot I came for and this photo is the result.

Experiences like these show me why we must preserve Joshua Tree National Park. Not only is it one of the few places with truly dark skies in the SoCal area, but it’s natural beauty also brings people of all walks of life together. With our cities growing everyday, light pollution continues to prevent most of us from seeing the Milky Way and most of the stars. Let’s do our best to help future generations have a place to go experience the beauty of the night sky.

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

While exploring my area during sunset, I discovered a dock in Lake Kaweah with boats for rent. As I enjoyed the beautiful colors of sunset, I was reminded of when Christ's disciples were in a boat with Him. Although some of them were experienced fishermen, they panicked when they were caught in a storm of great magnitude. Not only did they forget Who was in the boat with them, but the promise He had made to them prior to this boat trip: that they will get to the other side. If you're ever facing a storm in your life, remember you don't have to rely on your own strength. Remember who is with you and claim the promises He has given to you. It is then will you be able to experience peace that surpasses your own understanding.

I've been traveling a lot lately. I just got back from a trip to Michigan and now I'm getting ready for another trip to Arizona. Unfortunately I won't have time to take any photos there. I will be at SOULS West to help with a musical my friend @candice2azon put together centered around hymn music. Looking forward to that and seeing my friends there! Found this photo in my unedited folder. This was on a family trip to the redwoods in California. To walk among the tallest trees in the world is an amazing and humbling experience. If you've never been, I highly recommend it! The redwood forest is probably my favorite place to walk around in California.

You are my hiding place,
You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance,
Whenever I am afraid,
I will trust in you.

This is Matilija Falls hidden within the Los Padres National Forest. It's about a 5-mile hike to get to this spot. Due to the recent rain washing away the sand and dirt, we had to do a lot of rock climbing and creek crossing, which made it a fairly difficult hike. There are ropes on the side of the falls, which you can use to get to the upper falls where you can find some watering holes you can jump into. While it was tricky getting here, it is a beautiful spot to relax, cool off, and get away from the crowd. Bonus: there's even a neat little cave behind the waterfall!

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2

In my last post, I mentioned how busy I've been lately. So busy in fact, that I haven't been able to visit any of the beautiful super blooms happening all around California. 😭 Not wanting to give up without trying, I decided to drive to the hills near my town to go for a run and hopefully find some wildflowers to shoot. Unfortunately, I didn't find any. However, I did find a nice photo location spot during sunset. Looking at this scene, I immediately thought of the verse stated above. It was a great reminder that I am not alone in my struggles and that I have a God willing to help me overcome them. The chapter continues to describe God never sleeping and protecting us day and night. What a beautiful portrayal this is of His great love for us!‭‭
