There are some places that never fail to put you in awe regardless of how many times you visit. This is one of those places. . . Yeah, I got really indecisive on which edit to post so sorry for the past few deleted posts of this 😅 . . #explorevirginia #eastcoastcreatives #southernstatesco #swva #teamcanon #t7i #ef1635f4l #lightroom #unitedbyblue #welivetoexplore

Spent the morning playing in the creek. This park is pretty close to the new house, so this will probably be a regular occurrence. Great little ITP spot! Hank loves it.

No doubts in miracles 💜

| Christian and I completed another bucket list hike a few days back. Somehow coming out of it with blistered feet and sore shoulders has me eager to be on the trail again. Anyone else taking full advantage of this beautiful weather?? 🤘🏼 . . . . #visitnc #ashevilletrails #southernstatesco #wildernesstones #blueridgemoments #blueridgemountains #theoutbound #backcountry #awakethesoul #ncoutdoors #createandcapture #radparks #rei440project #stayandwander #optoutside #goatworthy #neverstopexploring #mtnchicks

We're coming for you, East Tennessee ❤

If you saw my story from last night, you saw that Clingman’s Dome was jammed pack with people with cameras, with countless visitors looking to get their shot of that famous GSM sunset and seeing this huge crowd of people had me thinking: Often, today, we are constantly reminded that “everyone is a photographer, the market is so saturated” and my lord being there definitely made me feel that. But honestly, it’s not true. Photography today is not about snapping the picture, but rather the art behind it. It’s about the years of learning technique and editing them to fit our view of the world. Yes, virtually everyone owns a camera, but there are very few who use it as a creative outlet, and those who do, they got something special. They can show the world the same place in a new light, in a way that we don’t often see it ourselves. To those who get discouraged by that line, don’t. Keep doing what you’re doing, keep working on those skills, keep trying to improve yourself, because who knows? Maybe you might inspire someone, and maybe you will be the one to stand out from the crowd. Side note: Idk who this couple was they just ended up in the right place at the right time

If you are interested in seeing how I actually make my living as a research scientist, check back into my stories over the next couple days. I am going to be documenting and sharing a day of field work. If you ever wondered what you can do with drones other than photography, I will show you how we use drones to collect data for environmental assessment. There will the beach, a ferry, lots of drones, and a golf cart. Guess where I am going and I will tell you if you are right! . . . . . #womenwhodrone #unitedbydrone #fromwhereidrone #dronestagram #droneoftheday #dronenature #dronelife #droneofficial #droneheros #skyhighlife #skybangerz #djiglobal #djicreator #airvuz #womeninstem

Who’s familiar with the punctuation butterflies? There is a comma butterfly and a question mark butterfly. This one is the latter. Their punctuation marks are on the underside of the back wings.

This is the face of someone who hasn’t yet biked almost 30 miles in 90 degree heat and found a tick on her leg. But I’m wearing that Sunday Funday crop top like I’m straight out of an LA spinning class. TLDR: I survived my trip to Cumberland Island!

There are still so many lovely places that I haven't seen in North Carolina. Thankfully, Laurel Park is not one of them. This was a good day, spent hanging with a special person. Thanks for modeling, @rlm1978! Enjoy the weekend, folks.

You might have noticed it’s been quiet on our account for a few days. That’s because we were camping in the backcountry of Cumberland Island, Georgia. It was incredible to disconnect and see the island’s incredible wildlife and history. Seeing the Dungeness ruins at the former Carnegie mansion was a major highlight. Look out for a post about visiting the island this week. In the meantime check out our stories (saved as a highlight) for more! #thisismysouth

Ok.. another bear picture. The day after I posted that last one, I ran into the same bear family in Cades Cove. When I arrived momma bear was grazing on grass while 2 cubs were in a tree and the third (I assume the runt) was glued to her heels. The little runt put on a show, propping up on trees looking back at us and even jumped up on momma bears back (pictured). Once she was done eating she called down the other two, leaned back up against a tree and started nursing all 3! It was amazing!

Dark wonderlands. . - - - Been a min since I hit up a waterfall, so nice to be in my element.

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. #ncoutdoor_inc #ncweekend #explorecarolina

This is a little different. To the average eye this is just a house. However, read the sign. It’s a Sears house. Back in the early 20th century you could mail-order a house. They would deliver the kit & then you build it. I’ve heard of them, but had never seen one until now as they are rare considering most are around 100 years old. #scenesfrommybike #757collective #photography #naturephotography #cycling #cyclinglife #ig_captured #virginia #explorevirginia #visitvirginia #naturalvirginia #virginiacities #onlyinvirginia #everydaycycling #cycling #fromwhereiride #outsideisfree #justride #cyclingphotos #hamptonroads #landscape #landscapelovers #landscapephotography #southernstatesco #myvirginialove #southernvisuals #searshouse #searshousedesignery #sears #searshome #searsroebuck @virginiaisbeautiful @visitvirginia @virginiacities

My soul feels the most alive hiking these peaks and exploring these valleys photo snapped by hubs @mattrhyne2

It’s a bit hot today so I’m cooling things down with a waterfall.

Texas small towns have the most beautiful historic homes, I swear. Can’t handle it. Love this gingerbread architecture.

Nothing beats abruptly waking up from a nap because you dreamed that you are kayaking with friends and instead of going over the waterfall properly you are ejected out of the kayak and tossed over the edge. And to think I was planning to borrow a kayak sometime soon. 😒 Better face this new fear, right? I’ve shared this image before but figured it was a good time to share it again. . . . #artofvisuals #landscapephotography #tennessee #landscapelover #landscape_captures #landscapes #landscape_photography #landscape_hunter #landscape_lovers #landscapecaptures  #getlost #landscapephotomag #ig_landscape #trapping_tones #splendid_earth  #agameoftones  #discoverearth #exploretheglobe #nakedplanet #places_wow  #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #earthofficial  #longexposure #landscapephotographer #southernstatesco #waterfall #canon #thephotoargus

There’s a voice in my head and it constantly doubts me. It feeds me fear, uncertainty, and insecurity. It looks down the path ahead from a dark and dismal point of view. There’s no whisper of encouragement, no other voice scuffling to shut the other out. But my faith is deeper than a whisper, and my eyes are fixed on what’s ahead, and dark and dismal is far from what my future holds. Sometimes it’s hard to see, sometimes the voice gets so loud its words leave my lips, but this not failure, this is being human. I hope you all have faith in who you are.

THIS GOOD BOY IS 3 YEARS OLD! 🎉🍻 Instead of hitting the bars for his 21st birthday, Bailey decided he wanted to hit the trails, so we got to celebrate by hiking one of our favorite spots in the ever-beautiful Shenandoah National Park this past weekend. Judging by that face, I’d say it was a good birthday!

Ⓚ⒠🅔🄿 🅒🄛⒤🅼🄱🅘ⓝ⒢ 🧗🏻‍♂️ this is sound advice most of the time... especially here in the high country ⛰🛤 ❗️❕❗️❕This photo was taken near Linn Cove on the Tanawha Trail (10/10 would recommend) ✌🏻 big payoffs and memorable sights as each mile of the trail unfolds. Some less celebrated aspects are the complex network of stairs and bridges that help you navigate huge boulders and water features 👍🏻 at only a 15min drive from staysummitlodge its a must see 🚗

This view of the goshenbranch is a hidden stop on the blueridgeparkway between blowingrock and old421. Message for exact location! The creek runs the extreme eastern border of the pisgahnationalforest. This spot also boasts a section of the mst with an impressive footbridge! From the summitlodge we like to drive to Boone for a starbucks to fuel the days adventures, then hop on the brp in blowingrock, making pit stops at a few overlooks like thunderhilloverlook before pulling off here! . . . . #vol10k #eclectic_shots #wilderness_culture #wildernessnation #lifeofadventure #folkscenery #livefolk #outside_project #southernstatesco #inspiringadventures #earthoutdoors #folkgood #modernoutdoorsman

📸 One of the areas shortest and most rewarding hikes is Beacon Heights of the Blue Ridge Parkway, it’s a must see for those seeking a big payoff with little physical effort 👍🏻 . . . . . . #vol10k #eclectic_shots #wilderness_culture #wildernessnation #lifeofadventure #folkscenery #livefolk #outside_project #southernstatesco #inspiringadventures #earthoutdoors #folkgood #modernoutdoorsman
