The weather here lately is snow joke ❄️ Another day in single digits with howling wind๐Ÿ˜ฉ ——————————————————————————— This is a slightly different angle of an image I took two years ago when the sunset was popping off. I got a few comps from that evening; one which was a perfectly symmetrical image and this one with some pleasing leading lines and strong composition in the foreground. I had found some thick lake ice near the mouth of the river, which really compliments the mountain backdrop.. I have come to found that I always am trying to find interesting foreground objects/strong leading lines for my images. Finally feeling comfortable with my art after 4.5 years of shooting DSLR. ——————————————————————————— Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park ——————————————————————————— #montanamoment #visitmontana #glaciernps #lakemcdonald #lenscluture #artofvisuals #earthfever #heatercentral #earthfocus #natgeo100contest #ig_color #tentree #whitefish #awesome_earth #visualsofearth #canon #artofvisuals #splendid_earth #amongthewild #nationalparkgeek #earthpix #natgeo #mountainsarecalling #glaciernationalpark #natgeo #montana #usinterior #sunset_pics #lensbible #createcommune

Following one of the worst winter storms in Hawaii’s recent history, large swells wiped out the beaches of western Maui. The next day, large pieces of coral were scattered throughout the beach.. I picked through the most colorful and beautiful pieces and found this composition of the island of Moloka’i. The wave action reminds me of fingers from the sea coming to reclaim the coral back ๐Ÿ ——————————————————————————— Maui, Hawaii ——————————————————————————— #maui #mauiphotographer #mauihawaii #hawaiilife #hawaii #beachlife #ocean #sea #natures_hub #artofvisuals #earthfever #nature_brilliance #earthfocus #natgeo100contest #wildernessculture #tentree #awesome_earth #visualsofearth #canon #artofvisuals #splendid_earth #amongthewild #earthpix #natgeo #walltones #natgeo #sunset_pics #canonphotography
