The world is a beautiful place, but it can be hard to see when things don’t go as planned. Sometimes, what we want out of life and what we receive are completely divergent. Sometimes the world takes away things that we thought were certain. Sometimes it tells us we are wrong, when we are convinced we are right. But maybe the world will never change for us, maybe we have to change the way we see the world — maybe it really just comes down to perspective. Is it loneliness or is it self-discovery. Is it hurt or is it growth. Is it a failure or is it a lesson. Is it a breakdown or is it a breakthrough. Life is not about waiting for beautiful things to happen, it’s about finding beauty in the dark. It’s about discovering magic in reality, it’s about seeing familiarity in a whole new light. The world will always be a beautiful place, if we choose to see it that way — change the way you look at things and you may just find what you’re searching for.” ~Bryan Anthonys ~ ~ #fontanalake #nantahalanationalforest #ncoutdoors #explore_countryside #harleydavidson #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #landscapephotography #motorcycle_moment #touringbike #letsgoforaride #roadtrip #harleyforlife #hidden_igers #ultralimited #harleysofinstagram #twowheelsmovethesoul #feedyourfreedom #harleydavidsonnation #ipulledoverforthis #open828 #summertime #everything_transport #freedommachine #instamotorcycle #renegade_rides #icu_usa #explorenorthcarolina #ipulledoverforthis #hey_ihadtosnapthat

Mid summer is the best time to photograph butterflies in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We promise if you time it right, getting a photo of one is easy! They are abundant in mid-August 🦋

You’re going to have mountains in your pathway, instead of taking the spur trail around the problem, simply conquer it and meet it head on! Just like a physical mountain the view and your sense of self will be amazing from the other side! #conquer

There are places I return to again and again. I don’t have to travel to the other side of the world to have novelty, I only have to appreciate subtlety. It changes and I change and no two trips are ever the same. Adventure is everywhere if you look with fresh eyes and an open heart. • • • • • • • _____________________________________ #828isgreat #ourstate #optoutside #asheville #blueridgemountains #explorenc #exploreeverything #wildandfree #thebeautywelove #appalachianmountains #romanticasheville #alwaysexploring #ashevilletrails #blueridgemoments #idhikethat #blueridgeoutdoors #blackbalsam #themountainsarecalling #wncmagazine #ourpisgah #appalachian_explorers #artofvisuals #southernlivingmag #goatworthy #discover_carolinas #pisgahnationalforest #wildflowers

putting on my scrubs today to go back to work was almost surreal.. i’ve have the last two weeks off from work. i know that doesn’t sound like much, but for someone like me that’s almost unheard of.. i haven’t had classes, so no homework. no obligations. i had so many fun and exciting adventures planned for these past two weeks. but, when the time came, and i found myself having more time than i knew what to do with, my soul was soft and i knew that i needed a break. i’m constantly moving, biting off more than i can chew, and overworking myself.. so, i decided to skip out on all my travel and adventures to stay at home and nurture myself. i’ve done yoga everyday with my best friend, i’ve read two new books, hiked mountains, played with my dog, spent time with my family, and even went on a few dates with someone who lights my inner drive ☀️ my roommate and i are both starting our own versions of “self-care september” a few weeks early which is great motivation for us both ✨ this last week has really shown me that who you surround yourself with makes a huge difference in your day-to-day life. so, if you find me not replying to snaps/texts i’m not sorry, but ive found people who make the room feel lighter when they walk in and shower me with encouragement, so i don’t need your negativity anywhere near me or the life i’ve created. my final year of classes start on monday.. and tonight i go back for my first out of six 12hr nights.. i’m going to be a full-time student, full-time ICU nurse, and full-time dog mom..normally i’d feel pretty discouraged about having to juggle all these things, but i’ve been riding this high for awhile now i’m determined to keep it going 💛 so, cheers babes! keep it weird and kick ass 🤙🏼 . . . #nursesofinstagram #icunurse #angelenergy #scrublife #blueridgemountains #blueridgeoutdoors #getoutside #fitness #fitnessmotivation #selfcare #selfcareseptember

This shot was from the highest point east of the Mississippi River, Mount Mitchell. The views from up here were amazing for sunrise and the drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway from that high up were just as special. I love how the rays were coming out from the sun during this sunrise because the mountains stay blue, while the rest of the scene is given a lot of warmth. Overall this view was breathtaking 🌄 📸 Shot on: Canon T7i, 18 mm - f/22.0- 1/125 sec- ISO 100 I also have a photography website in my bio! I am excited to take on clients from all ranges from portraits, landscapes, events, or even pets! Send me an email or a dm and I will respond promptly 👍🏻

Things don’t always go as planned on your wedding day or adventure session day and that is 100% ok. Rolling with the punches can be half of the fun. So on Kala and Kevin’s weekend as the rain a fog decided to come to town we said no problem! Instead of a sunset session we got up before the sun and drove up the mountain, we were greeted with fog instead of wide open views but that fog kept it so so intimate and a bit magical. Once we had enjoyed that mystical vibe we drove down the mountain a bit to find those blue mountain views and to goof off and get a little silly. - When you’re planning your adventure make sure you find someone who can adjust the plans and keep it fun. Flexibility and knowledge of an area are really two integral pieces of any adventure. I can’t tell you how many of my hikes have shifted or just taken a little extra preparation to keep it fun ♥️ - What’s your number 1 adventure tip?

North Carolina has a lot of waterfalls that you can walk behind. Dry Falls has to be one of the more popular spots. It is interesting, however, that another popular “walk behind” waterfall is just down the road at Bridal Veil Falls which is also another roadside waterfall. The Highlands area is really beautiful and has a number of great outdoor locations to enjoy. . . . . #hdcarolina #visitnc #visitasheville #scape_captures #blueridgemoments #dryfalls #southernliving #highlandsnc #longexpoelite #hikerchat #fiftyshades_of_nature #ncoutdoor_inc #nantahalanationalforest #tnc_nc #bd_pro #wanderlust #hikingismagical #chasingwaterfalls #slowshutter #moody_captures #blueridgeoutdoors #longexposure #thehub_longexposure #hikingadventures #highlandsnc #scenicnc #828isgreat #natgeolandscape #ourplanetdaily #heightofhappiness

Check out our story for the September Lula Lake dates JUST ADDED! 🆕


I was excited to find this beautiful small waterfall last week while doing some exploring and creek walking. It is not that often you find a scene like this without a bunch of deadfall blocking the view. #blueridgeparkway #waterfall #river #boulders #pisgahnationalforest #blueridgewaterfalls #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #blueridgemountains #ncoutdoor_inc #ncmountains #ashevilletrails #appalachian_explorers #naturalnorthcarolina #earthpix #forest #cascade #longexposure #yourshotphotographer #landscape #nature #ourstate #outdoorphotomag #exploretocreate

On “Kids These Days” (2/2 ): Of course there is important data demonstrating the developmental damage done by growing up digitally immersed, but I (choose to ) believe that this is not irreparable. Other, equally important science is proving our minds more malleable than we ever thought before. The human species has not lost it’s capacity or potential for deep and meaningful connection and communication, nor will it in the course of just a few generations. But the only reason I believe this is because I work in a space that deliberately pulls young people well out of their data-ridden lives and asks them to be fully human. I see over and over again that kids do see the difference, and embrace it, and make changes. But we must make it easier for them. The reason that this generation of adolescents may grow up in some sense socially handicapped is not their fault. It has affected them most overtly precisely because it has not been in their control. It is adult society, with its present inability to hold compassionate dialogue, substantive analysis, traditional wisdom, that is to blame. We are equally stunted (though it is less tragic; we have done it to ourselves ). The work of simplifying children’s lives, putting them face-to-face with each other, with struggle, with beauty, is more important now than ever. There is nothing wrong with them; but it is our responsibility to restructure our cultural priorities so that they get the chance to flourish as humans with depth and grit.


On “Kids These Days” (1/2 ): I frequently hear people bemoan the effects of social media and constant screentime on the youngest generation — and much of that is statistically supported; there are rising rates of depression, anxiety, and loneliness related at least tangentially to the explosion of the internet society. But what sometimes alarms me is the attitude that today’s kids are somehow different in their nature, or capacity, or potential — that it’s a problem with young people and not with their environment. It’s an age-old cynicism (“kids these days…” ) and a pernicious one, that kids are soft, or scared, or weaker than we were. I believe the opposite, at least anecdotally. It is the environment, the stimuli, the caterwauling chaos of internet-dom that is distracting our youngest into disarray — but it is doing the same thing to many older people also, equally susceptible to the toxicity of super-stimuli and soundbite idealogues that nurture already established dogmas — dogmas which, by the way, have a far more devastating effect than a kid’s texting habits. What’s that thing in the Bible about the log in your own eye? What I have seen consistently is that today’s kids, when you remove them from their only known normal, very quickly adjust to a face-to-face reality. After an initial stunned learning curve, they prove deeply innovative, curious, resilient, and profound, the natural state of all children. [continued in next post]


I had an amazing time this past weekend with @cathyandersonphoto expanding my photography knowledge. She teaches really cool classes and I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in increasing their skills.


Have you noticed that movie posters use orange and blue as contrasting colors? I can see why. These two colors are very appealing 💙🧡

The fast moving water created some nice erosion and the noise of the water drowns everything else out.
