Lost//Discovered: Oregon

It’s only taken me about eight months to finally edit a bunch of stills from our annual Lost//Discovered road trip. My buddies Andrew, Aaron, Jay and Jason, along with myself, flew to Oregon, rented an RV and did a trip down the coast, then back inland to find some waterfalls and then three of us ended up at Mount Hood to finish the adventure.

Here are the pics. Hope you enjoy!

 

Lost Discovered 2016 in photos

Well our Lost Discovered trip was back in late January, so I figured why not sit on the photos forever until it was way past time to reasonably post them for any true interest?

Mission accomplished!

We left from Phoenix, stopped near Arcosanti for this first photo and then the rest of the trip covered Lee’s Ferry, Zion, Bryce, Moab/Arches, Colorado and Shiprock…and places in-between. We were blessed by a full moon to start the trip so there are a lot of night shots that almost look like daytime, especially in Zion! There are some done shots thrown in there as well.

Hope you enjoy these images…there are quite a few. And when you are done, check out the video at the very bottom for a short film about this trip as well!

The Million Dollar Highway in Colorado has some sharp drop-offs and incredible scenery, plus this amazing switchback. I spotted it on Google Maps a few days prior and was hoping it would look amazing from the air...and I think it was better than I imagined.

Along the West Fork Trail

In preparation for our upcoming Lost//Discovered: 2016  trip that happens this January 24th-29th, a few months ago we ventured up to West Fork Trail to film some stuff for a trailer, plus just have a bit of fun planning everything.

Here’s some snapshots from that day. If you missed the trailer, you can watch it at the end! Also if you missed last year’s stuff, just click here!

(Note: Prints from this trip can be purchased from my gallery. If you want an image not in that gallery, please let me know! Use coupon code LostDiscovered for 25% off! Visit Gallery)

Back in January me and three buddies…Jason, Andrew and Jay, all jumped in a rented motorhome and toured northern, northeastern and eastern Arizona over the course of five days.

I created a time-lapse film from our adventures, which you can see right here in case you missed it. But this blog post is just photos. Lots and lots of photos. Of landscapes, sunrises, canyons, old buildings and…good friends.

Hope you enjoy this look back at our trip.

Lost//Discovered: Time-lapse

Back in mid-January, my buddies Jason Williams, Andrew Fleming and Jay Worsley joined me for a road trip through Arizona in a rented motorhome. We dubbed the trip “LOST//DISCOVERED” to embrace the idea that we were getting away from our daily, hectic lives and finding something we’d misplaced…whatever it was. Our love of nature, our creativity, a bond with God…

We get so wrapped up in our jobs, kids, families and lives in general…trips like this are ways to experience something different. Something new. To discover who we are. Build friendships. Clear your head. Re-energize.

This road trip was roughly 1300 miles through essentially the top-right quarter of Arizona. We headed north early one morning to photograph sunrise at Sunset Point, and then from there the trip was on. We hit Grand Falls, Horseshoe Bend, Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly and the White Mountains.

This short film is just a look back at that trip and what we saw. Being the storm-chaser that I am, it was incredibly awesome to capture a winter storm front rolling around eastern Arizona. In fact, it almost looked like a dust storm rolling in…thus we kept yelling out “SNOWBOOB!” because of just the incredible sight of it. I personally have never witnessed something like that.

Hope you enjoy this quick look at our trip and the places we saw.

And on March 9th, Jay Worsley will release his own film from the trip…which is a beautiful, 16-minute documentary style story about what we discovered along the way.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, March 2nd), we’ll be having a release party for Jay’s film and you can find out more info here.

Lost // Discovered: Teasers

My road trip across northern and eastern Arizona with Jason Williams, Jay Worsley and Andrew Fleming was pretty amazing. Here’s a taste of things to come.

First up is a little teaser of my time-lapse film from the trip.

And once you watch that…here are two trailers from my buddy Jay Worsley, who is making a 15-minute semi-documentary about the trip, which is absolutely awesome. Can’t wait to share that as well!
