“because we are human, we are meant to know pain, anger, fear, loneliness, loss, and grief, yet we are taught to hide these intense currents of vulnerability and emotion; to run away from them because we can’t handle them.” but we can’t handle them because we don’t talk about them. why? because we want everyone to think that we live a perfect instagram or facebook life, free of pain, full of travels, perfect decisions, and the perfect shot?
that’s not real life.
life is messy, and tragic, and painful, and beautiful, and full of lessons and opportunities to better ourselves, and as scary as it feels- it offers ample opportunities to connect. one of the best ways we can connect is through sharing our grief, struggles, and fears.
i’ll be the first to admit how scary it is to share these things with people for fear of judgment, or that they will bail at the first sign of emotion.
it’s ok to feel this, all of it, however you need to, for as long as you need to. it’s ok to be human. it’s ok to show up exactly as you are. your feelings are valid. your emotions are valid. and you matter.

Long's peak & bear lake sunrise timelapse

on sunday i headed up to rocky mountain np to do some nighttime photography. as dawn approached i made my way to bear lake to set up for sunrise. i noticed the interesting, fast moving clouds and decided to try creating a timelapse. i found a composition i liked, set up my tripod, and let the camera fire away while i got to enjoy the beautiful scene. i had fun this week figuring out how to assemble the video, a look forward to creating more in the future.

this was made from 1800 photos over 30 minutes, condensed into 30 seconds. music is sonata for violin and piano #5 by beethoven.

There aren’t many drives as beautiful as the one on highway 14 that takes you through the poudre canyon. it’s exceptional. 📸: @vincemal27 #visitfortcollins #visitftcollins #lovefortcollins

"ends of the earth"
the day after our autumn wedding in telluride, colorado, my wife and i, and a couple of our friends, drove out to the uncompahgre national forest in the san juan mountains to do some camping as part of our unofficial honeymoon. the next morning i woke early to hike out to a nearby lake for sunrise. when i arrived at the lake i was quite surprised to find these massive tiles of dried mud all around the water’s edge, created by the severe drought that colorado was experiencing. i arrived with plenty of time to scout for the perfect foreground, one that would compliment the jagged peaks rising above the far end of the lake. after coming across this pattern of cracks, i finally planted my tripod and began dialing in my composition. using a 14mm lens, and a technique known as focus stacking, i was able to achieve tack sharpness throughout the entire frame.

Stormtrooper drains 4 shots in a row at skyhawks practice, including a half court shot. it’s gotta be the shoes. 😂

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve done any intense hiking and i am pumped to get out to the “big mountains” this weekend!!! does any one else in co feel this way? boulder is close and has some good hikes, can fill the hike void temporarily if needed, but nothing compares to all the mountains that line-up along i-70.
