I know I'm a little late to the game, but I still wanted to share some
of my favorite moments from 2014. So here it goes,
in no particular order, MY FAVORITE MOMENTS OF 2014:
One of my personal favorite highlights of this past year was
getting to see Denali, in the flesh. Such an amazing experience.
I got to cover the Ice Festival at Bridal Veil Falls and learned
how to ice climb for the first time. It was so amazingly fun and addicting!
Big shout out to 12 Finger Adventure for putting on the event and
teaching me the magical ways of climbing ice!
There wasn't anything particularly noteworthy about this night,
other than being in Zion National Park, but it's probably one
of my favorite star trail shots of the year!
I learned a lot about whitewater kayaking this year.
With the help of my best friend and the amazing Utah Whitewater Club
I was able run some pretty sweet rivers with some pretty sweet people.
So many clients to be grateful for this year!
Specifically, Big Sky International Tents (pictured),
Chimera Snowboards, Palace Snowboards, Kahtoola,
Deuter Backpacks, Katadyn and Optimus, Watts Enterprises
and The Outbound Collective.
Thank you all for helping make my dreams come true!
Learned how to photograph underwater, and it felt
like discovering photography all over again! Can't
wait to hone my skills on this one and capture
some new perspectives.
This was one of my all time favorite sunsets ever.
I had just finished setting up my backcountry camp
and with the cloud cover thought sunset might be a dud.
Little did I know, it was just about to blow up!
Another last minute sunset that I nearly missed!
I was just about to pack up my gear when a beam
of light crept into my frame. This is a place I'm vowing
to explore more of.
I was as giddy as a school girl when I realized what I was seeing.
Light green clouds danced in the sky and I must've stood in silence
for a good five minutes before I started shooting. Seeing the Northern
Lights for the first time was definitely one of the best moments of my life!
A spring backpacking trip that turned into a winter
backpacking trip. Gotta love the Wasatch Mountains.
I got to work for the SLCC Globe newspaper for a bit this year
and really loved the diverse subjects I got to shoot. This
was one of my favorites; covering the Holi Festival in
Spanish Fork, Utah.
This image took three years in the making, and 2014
was the year that had all the right ingredients!
I was so pumped to finally experience this phenomenon in person.
I may not be the best crack climber, but I sure had a blast
photographing these amazing climbers in Indian Creek, UT.
Nothing better than exploring the mountains I call home.
So stoked for a new year, and all the upcoming projects.
Happy new year and happy adventuring!
