Adobe Photoshop Lightroom  This month’s theme explores how people harvest food. Share your food traditions using #Lr_Gather to be featured on the Lightroom Instagram page.

Photo by @alenpalander || On a calm winter morning – just before a long road trip – a few friends and I decided to make a quick stop outside of Vancouver. We witnessed one of the most stunning and mirror-like landscapes I’ve ever seen reflected on Sasamat Lake. The light dusting of snow on the trees is a rare sight in this area, even for this time of year, so I felt incredibly fortunate to capture nature’s beautiful handiwork.

#Lr_Gather photo by @workinghandsfarm || We harvest for our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) 46 out of 52 weeks in the year. This time of the year, the Purple Sprouting Broccoli or “PSB” is a real treat (especially after a few months of winter veggies). Most varieties take 170-220 days to sprout from planting (planted in August & harvested from February-April), so it’s a once a year gift for our members.

#Lr_Gather photo by @story.ed || This woman was busy in the countryside at a farm in Karnataka, India, supporting and helping her husband. While traveling in this place, I spent time with her and her family. They harvest ragi – an important, prominent and essential food that gets cultivated in Karnataka. While they produce ragi, they also love to cultivate vegetables and other spices in their own backyard to use in their daily lives.

Highlight food traditions with #Lr_Gather to be featured this month!

Photo by @taylorfreesolo || Jaytuk Steinruck (Tolowa Dee-ni’) harvests a few anemone at low tide, adding to the Tolowa traditional meal that Marva Jones (@siixuutesna), Cyndi Ford, and their families had been gathering and preparing all week. The meal includes anemone, eel, king salmon, acorn soup and acorn bread (baked in hot beach pebbles!). These are things that their families have been surviving on for thousands of years. Many of these traditional foods are at risk. The Tolowa continue to fight for the health of these ecosystems and for their right to harvest sustainably. Having seen it firsthand, the resilience within the Tolowa is stronger than ever.

Photo by @taylorfreesolo || Tolowa Dee-ni’ elder Bertha Peters prepares a traditional Tolowa delicacy, San-chvnt'uu'i' (acorn soup), as part of a larger meal organized by Marva Jones (@siixuutesna) on the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation in Northern California. Foods like San-chvnt'uu'i' and Lhuksvn' (salmon) have been staples of the north coast Native American diet for thousands of years. After a century-long onslaught, many families have lost their connection to these ancient foods and foodways. Thanks to Bertha and her family, however, subsequent generations of Tolowa Dee-ni’ will have access to the wisdom and nutrition of these traditional practices.

He is returning from an excursion with his brother @jlg.ensaw and cousin @savsevs. They are part of the Ancestral Guard, a collective of North Coast indigenous youth, working to rediscover, rejuvenate and revitalize their tribal food systems under the persistent onslaught of natural resource conflict and environmental destruction. The Klamath is experiencing a dangerous decline in its salmon population due to dams, ocean overfishing and climate change. Thankfully, youth like the Ancestral Guard are working with their communities to continue to protect the river and the resources that sustain them.

Photos by @renan_ozturk || Young Mae experiences ancient Apache foodways in a way she never had before. She is hunting for Gloscho (woodrat), an important traditional food source, which will later be incorporated into tamales. Mae is being mentored by her aunt Twila Cassadore (@cassadoretwy) an expert San Carlos Apache forager who, like her ancestors, understands the importance of connecting spirit with environment. Twila's mission is to revert her community back to relying on their land.

Photo by @taylorfreesolo || I am excited to be sharing a series of photos this week from @gatherfilm – a feature documentary and photojournalism project that highlights stories of food sovereignty in Indian Country. Here Aryana Henthorne, a member of the Sherwood Valley Band of Pomo Indians, harvests an abalone for a traditional meal. Inspired and invigorated by the nationwide native youth movement, she is working to reintroduce native foodways to her tribe.

Photo by @mindz.eye || I was in Utah photographing Monument Valley and Valley of the Gods when I decided to check out Goosenecks State Park too. It had been overcast, so I assumed my chances of seeing any kind of a sunset were pretty slim. Luckily for me, once we got to the top, the clouds began to break right before sundown, and I was treated to a show of bright light and vivid colors. Time and time again, I’ve learned that it always pays off to watch the weather and to stay even when you think you might not see anything.

#Lr_Oceanic photo by @jonahallendesigns || In Indonesia, I watched massive waves move toward a cove. As the swells funneled into this cove, they battered the surrounding cliff sides, bouncing into one another. This phenomenon created a wedge, as two waves converged to create a seemingly perfect confluence of energy, water and light. Since there were shrubs on the cliff blocking my view below, I had to peak over the edge to capture this moment.

#Lr_Oceanic photo by @jwellmeyer || Most of my friends call me the “Pelican Whisperer” because I always seem to attract them. I was out shooting some surfers at sunrise when this pelican dropped in on me while I was sitting on the jetty. It was like he was ready for his photo shoot. I was pretty fortunate to catch some of the incoming waves in the foreground.

#Lr_Oceanic photo by @micktographer || Last Saturday, I headed to Laguna Beach not expecting much color, but during the last minutes of the sunset everything lit up. I noticed a small tide pool where the waves were creating these mini waterfalls every time a set rolled in. I set my camera super close with my 16-35mm lens and took about 20 exposures, managing to nail the shot.
