Interrupting your regularly scheduled Utah posts for this Ah-Mazing sunset by the US Capitol last night.


Bryce HooDoos

While in Utah we spent a day in Bryce Canyon National Park. I have to be honest, I liked Bryce more than Zion. Sorry Zion! I think I liked it better because it was something like I’d never seen. I’ve never seen a canyon with these cool hoodoos. It’s even fun saying hoodoo. hoooodooooooo.

We went on the Navajo Trail which lead you through the slot canyon with a closer view of the hoodoos. It was so cool but a pretty tough hike back up to the top.


Sunset in Zion National Park

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of going with local photographers to show me around their neighborhood. This time, I met up with Seth. A great photographer who is passionate about the outdoors. The best guide there is!

He was the one who told me about this great spot to shoot the sunset. We were fortunate to have a great sky too.

Home from an amazing time in Utah for a few days. Did I miss anything while I was gone?


Summer Flower

Love how sunflowers grow in the summer. It’s something to look forward to each year. But what’s even cooler is running through the fields when they are taller than you. It makes you feel young again.

#TBT when the cherry blossom are at full bloom. I bet these exact trees are going to be looking very different in the next few weeks.

Shot this at the US capitol building while construction is going on the dome. The moon was so bright it was it’s own light source.


Manassas Battlefield Park

This is an image I’ve had for a while but never was totally satisfied with it. I kept it in this folder on my desktop called “still working” for images I like but can’t figure out how to fix. Sometimes it’s best to take a little break and come back to it. I love how the fog is lining the tree.

As you’re reading this, I’m on my way to Zion National Park! So excited to check out Utah. My first time ever.

Not sure what this image has anything to do with Zion, but I liked it anyways :)


DC Drives

As I was taking these pictures, I was thinking to myself how fortunate I am to live in Virginia. Here’s what I mean, I can drive 20 minutes east and be in the most powerful city in the world. I can drive 1 hour west and be in one of the most amazing national parks in the country and see beautiful leaves like these.
