Wales & Scotland 🇬🇧

Hard to believe it’s been nearly a year, but I’m still editing shots from last year’s 4-week trip through Ireland and the UK.

Loch Garry, Scottish Highlands

I’ve driven past Loch Garry four times en route to the Isle of Skye, and each time felt unable to capture the incredible landscape. This time, Scotland felt like a new place altogether as light swept across the Highlands.

Mt. Bachelor & Cascade Lakes, Oregon

Bend, Oregon is home to some of the most authentically beautiful scenery in the US. The Cascade Lakes command a spine-tingling view of Mt. Bachelor — complete with a few minutes of Alpenglow.

Vlogging mics 🎤

Since I started vlogging, I picked up a Blue Yeti USB microphone. I’m in love with it. Not exactly nomad-friendly, but the audio quality and no-latency monitoring are phenomenal.
