Road Tripping through the Dolomites

From Innsbruck to Slovenia via the Dolomites

In May, my husband Menno and I took a week off and decided to go on a little road trip. Although are final destination was Croatia, we decided to make the trip more about the journey than the destination, and planned a route through areas of outstanding natural beauty. The first of these places was the Dolomites UNESCO world heritage area in Italy.

You may have seen that we had visited this area a few weeks before for a day trip to the Lago Di Braies, but since one day wasn't enough, we decided to drive through this area on the first day of our trip which started in Innsbruck in Austria and finished in Bled in Slovenia.

Even though this time we were only driving through the Dolomites, we took almost double the time we'd scheduled to take, as around every turn was a stunning landscape waiting to be photographed.

We plan to return here again, and want to go hiking to the Tre Cime, but for now, at least we've had another little taster of this stunning area.

Climbing in 18-Degree Weather to Shoot the Sunrise

Vantage, Washington

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.

It all started with a simple Google search. My buddy, Cameron, and I were procrastinating studying for our law school finals when we started daydreaming about a getaway.
