14 Days 7 Hours Ago

Sunset last night looking towards the Tugwell Cr. Wildfire burning now at over 16 hectares... cause: dumb human... we have been on the highest alert for wildfires... come on people, FUCK! 😳😢 Rant aside, please check out @jesspurrr for the most beautiful tree art I have had the opportunity to see! She brings trees to life on canvas and paper for you to enjoy ❤️ #jesspurrr #wildfire #sunset #besmart #putoutyourfire #notcool #dumbass #why #wildfiresbc #sad #magenta #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #pnw #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography #trees #forestfire #forest #bcforestfires #nikond810

...as artists we often become overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy, of not being good enough... yes, that’s the ego crashing the party... it’s real though, the feelings are real and it derails our creativity... I find that looking at images like this one and losing ones self in the natural chaos... meditating... this helps to enable me to sort things out, reflect on why I’m feeling this way... for me it was a sudden outburst of my Celiac disease... ate at a restaurant that served me gluten contaminated food... it’s difficult to work when one is in excruciating pain and needs to run to a washroom every half hour... so I began to have all these feelings... onwards, but staying close to le banyo! 😳🖤 #meditation #introspection #inadequate #notgoodenough #celiacdisease #banyo #chaos #pnwphotography #pnwphotographer #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #trees #landscapephotography

...Calypso shedding a bit of her beautiful wrath on the Central Strait of Juan de Fuca... in full appreciation I humbly record her magnificence on film... remnants of a storm she conjured up in the North Pacific this past winter... we can either get down and complain about the rain or we can dive in an revel in its wet magnificence! I love to dive into Calypsos wrath on a surfboard and let her have her way with me... sometimes it’s a painful beatdown but most often a blissful ride... ❤️#moody_nature #earth_shotz #soulful_moments #dramaticsky #fiftyshades_of_nature #juandefuca #oceanscape #landscapephotography #naturephotography #pnwphotography #pnwphotographer #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #surf #choices #behappy #shadows #lightandshadow #canadagems #beautifulbc #blue #ocean #storm

...I don’t use a spray bottle to ‘wet’ my models... nature does it’s own wet best... during a light misty rain, common in our winters, is my favourite time to shoot macro... the mood is sultry, soulful and introspective... time to reflect in each tiny droplet... 💧 ❤️ #macrophotographer_club #dark_macro_art #drdd #soulful_moments #introspective #soulful #wet #naturephotography #onwphotographer #pnwphotography #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #macrophotography #moody #droplets #evergreen #naturelovers

...sometimes I feel like a prisoner in my own space... that’s a choice, I know... focusing on choosing something different is the key... or I could wallow in it, whine and complain... I feel awesome, what a great day! ❤️ Hope your day was or is or shall be just as awesome! ❤️ #jj_urbanart #gratutude #greatday #graffiti #jj_urbanart #rsa_graffiti #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #streetart #jj_urbex

...do you hide behind false facades or do you just grab life by the balls and not give a fuck what the latest opinion of ‘they’ is... be the best you that is possible at any given moment... and you know what, sometimes that may be just barely standing... why should that count against you in the standings of ‘they’... fuck ‘they’... I love you for you, just the way you are, or I don’t, and if I don’t I’ll tell you so... that works both ways, I’m not gonna kiss ass for ‘followers’ or anything else in life for that matter... never have, and never will... keep it real, I will never be offended by honesty and integrity... ❤️ Big love to all the real folks out there! #landscapephotography #bnw #bnw_zone #bnw_society #bnw_lightandshadow #blackandwhitephotography #pnwphotography #pnwphotographer #juandefuca #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #integrity #bereal #honesty #gratutude #insincere #sincerity #fuckthey

...she was moody in a black and white kind of way... she allowed me to love her through my lens... of herself, this moment in time she gave... greatful for sure ❤️ Looking from the SAN Juan Ridge, VanIsle over the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains...

This shot was taken in between freighters and container ships... I often want to go back in time to stand here and watch whales breaching, salmon jumping, sea lions and porpoise frolicking... sure we see the odd ones here and there in between ships... I hear and feel the ships huge diesel motors thumping while standing 900m up on the mountain... imagine what the marine life is hearing... so grateful that I can have these moments of introspective solitude... it’s important to seek out your passion in life and then live it... I often ask myself, ‘why am I here on this planet?’... I find my answers in the pursuit of my passions... what’s your passion? For some it’s the pursuit of $ and material things... for others it’s listening to the whales talk... I hope my pics can bring some solace into your lives... the rest is up to you... ❤️ #bnw #bnw_addicted #soulful_bnw #soulful #passion #juandefuca #shadows #environment #landscapephotography #seascapephotography #dramaticsky #truth #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #pnwphotography #pnwphotographer #pnwlife #pnwlove #olympicmountains #contrast #naturelovers #bnw_zone #bnw_lightandshadow #bnw_perfection

...even newborns have a past... we all have our imperfections, dark spots, shadows, scars, beauty, colour and light... it makes us who we are... it’s when we cover it up, deny it, that’s when our lives become lies... when that deceit feeds fears and the ego says you are no good... focus on what is truly you... be that and be beautiful in your own unique way!

Prunus Carolineana or Cherry Laurel... plant, leaves, flowers, fruit, seeds toxic to humans (hydrogen cyanide) ☠️ ...fragile, beautiful, strong, able to persevere, sensual, attractive, confident, with purpose... we can be like that as well, is humans... what gets in the way and creates so much pain and suffering then... one word... ego. Life is so fucking rich in experiences, love, compassion when we can willingly park the ego... I’m not saying get rid of ego... it has its part to play... just learn to escape it’s domination of your life and consequently the lives of all around you! ❤️ #macrophotographer_club #ego #bnw #bnw_macros #bnw_macro #blackandwhite #ego #compassion #beauty #whatwecanbe #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #love #flowers #macro #flowermacro #liveandletlive #prunuscaroliniana

Shadows on machines high up on the mountain... machines sometimes long forgotten... maybe they broke and were too expensive to fix, or to haul out again... still have fuel, oil, batteries, grease, antifreeze, gear oil inside of them... as they are slowly consumed by nature, so are these toxic substances... but the it’s all about the $$$ 🤔 #bnw_workers #heavymachinery #isolated #gf_bnw #drdd #soulful #bnw_workers #splash #moody #darkphotography #texture #contrast #yellow #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography #loggingroads #logginglife #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #steel #risk #dangerous #toxic #pollution #environmentalhazard

...something primal about Cat tracks... I know what they can do... great respect for heavy machinery and the operators that work them in these isolated areas... airlift only if it goes bad... often that takes too long as there are no birds close enough for a quick out... 🖤 #cat #heavymachinery #dozer #isolated #gf_bnw #drdd #soulful #bnw_workers #splash #moody #darkphotography #texture #contrast #yellow #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography #loggingroads #logginglife #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #steel #risk #dangerous #catrack

With these machines we change what is... we force our interpretation of what should be... if that altered state is left alone it once again becomes enveloped by nature and is slowly broken back down into its original bits and pieces... 🖤 #splash_mania #diesel #machines #change #bnw_rose #bnw_magazine #bnw_addicted #bw #blackandwhite #bnw_society #bnw_captures #blackandwhitephotography #gf_bnw #soulful_bnw #_edp_ #drdd #bnw_zone #dark_macro_art #cat #bnwlovers #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography

I love the way flowers are so intricately formed... they are all about sensuality and attraction... being the most beautiful, scented and alluring so that bees and other insects hungrily search out their inner most juices... the absolute need to reproduce... 💥❤️🌺🌓⚡️🍌🌶🌮 #bnwmacros #bnw_rose #bnw_magazine #bnw_addicted #bw #blackandwhite #bnw_society #bnw_captures #blackandwhitephotography #gf_bnw #soulful_bnw #_edp_ #drdd #bnw_zone #dark_macro_art #sensual #desire #need #want #attract #flower #bnw_flowers #bnwlovers #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #pnwphotographer #pnwphotography #pnwartist#prunuscaroliniana

I often wonder what wildly thinks of me as I drag my camera gear into position all the while talking to them like they understand me... well they do anyways but you know what I mean... like, “does this human not get the concept of territory and my personal space... poor human must be truly lonely to come all the way out here and try get close with me!”... ahaha 🤪❤️ #wildbirds #wildbirdphotography #birdphotography #goose #eye #looking #pnwphotography #pnwphotographer #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #closeup #nesting #mommy #animalspeak #naturephotography

Layers are a fun challenge to photograph... depth of field, perception... just like our daily lives... we see it but so difficult to put a finger on it... where in those layers do we fit... do we have to ‘fit’ anywhere?? or is that just what we have been socialized to believe... why not just explore, be happy and end up wherever we choose to be... wait, then the man would not know where we were... could not tax us, would lose control... soon it will not be allowed to roam freely and explore... better just get the fuck out there and do it! 🖤😘 #bnw #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #bnw_of_our_world #layers #theman #explore #forest #landscapephotography #monochrome #bnwaddict #bnwaddicted #bnw_society #ofsaltyspeak #peterlerchphotography #pnw #pnwphotography #pnwphotographer #wheredoifit #control #domination #trees #conifers
