Photo from @devlin_gandy: Had the hotspring and the Sierras to myself tonight. Transcendental introspection at its finest.

That's me spinning the burning steel wool and my wife (@ammstone) took the photo. This was our first time playing around with steel wool. Can't wait to do more. And with a hat on. Burnt my head a few times. #steelwool #willametteriver

Had a blast showing Jim and @emedean around the PNW for the last few days, but we're back in Seattle now and will be exploring the city tomorrow. There are so many amazing spots in the PNW, but Second Beach on this night was one of my favorites. #SecondBeach #Washington

Closest I've felt to being on another planet. I really enjoyed the Courthouse Towers under the light of a super moon. Where's everyone off to this weekend?! #wearestillwild

Looking east from the previous star-trail shot. Light pollution either from Marquette over 40 miles away or the moon rising. #puremichigan #michigan #daily_captures_longexpo #astrophotography #upperpeninsula #lake #reflections #allshots_ #longexposure

..boat campers on the #coloradoriver. Having miscalculated our sunset arrival time, we sat at the edge of #horseshoebend after hiking past a procession of fellow tourists heading in the opposite direction. I can be a little stubborn and insisted upon continuing into the darkness while the last light of the evening sun faded beneath the horizon, and all onlookers had long since left... A small light flickered on and glimmered against the river below. At first, I was frustrated at the intrusion into my already botched photo opportunity. But I shot into the windy moonlit night regardless, and ended up capturing a unique moment in this beautiful Arizona landscape.
