Morning meditation in Alaska. Woke up early this morning to chase the tidal bore wave but missed it due to soupy ice conditions turning the water to a frozen sludge. Last night we got lucky though, I was able to shoot my friends surfing a waist high peeling wave for almost 20 minutes. I love this place.
Although the bold Mitre peak may be impressive, rising over 5,500 ft above sea level in Milford Sound, it’s true depth is hard to grasp. Below the surface its sheer walls steeply plunge another 1,700 ft beneath the surface. From a distance it certainly takes your breath away... but on the waters surface, especially from a kayak, it can actually be bit overwhelming, borderline scary.
Sometimes it feels like fate. And I don’t mean that in a weird spiritual way.. but also I kinda do. When the circumstances all line up and you literally get the perfect light, pilot, wind and weather conditions during the one day you are able to fly on your schedule & theirs. More often than not these things just do not happen. It had been raining nonstop in Kauai & the forecast was looking pretty bleak. There was momentary break in the weather & this came together. . I shared this on my personal account @burkgnar and felt like it would be applicable here. Shot on iPhone X
Wander & WONDER - a journey through India. .

As an adult, it’s rare that you get to watch your parents experience something new. Today I got to share my love for photography + flying with my family, as I watched them take their first aerial tour. They were stoked and wide eyed as we soared over the Na Pali coast. I photographed its many moods, colors & shifts of light for hours & hours. Years ago, the first pictures I ever took were shared with only a few family members. In some ways it feels full circle to be able to have that same joy many years later. . @airventures_hawaii @desimalan
