crooked falls.

The search for new trails continues… the hunt has taken me further afield to Squamish. Today Bella and I were joined by our lovely friend Lucy, and head down the Squamish Valley Road in my new 4Runner. The trail was such good mix of root scrambling, mossy tree sections and lookout points for views of the whole valley. A trail I will definitely be exploring again.

one trail. two days.

There aren’t many dog-friendly hikes that I haven’t done on the North Shore now, and I’ve been feeling like I need some new scenery to explore. So this weekend I head up Cypress Mountain on the Eagle Bluffs trail. Yesterday it was pouring rain and there were zero views at the top, but it was great to have the trail all to ourselves. However today it was unexpectedly sunny, so I head back up to the bluffs once again to get the views I’d missed out on yesterday, and they did not disappoint!

Saturday.

boys on bikes.

I finally got out with my boyfriend and his mates on an afternoon out mountain biking this weekend, it was awesome seeing them in action. And Bella (my pup) has found her new favourite past time in racing down the trail after him! The lack on light in the densely wooded trails made conditions that weren’t ideal, but it was a fun challenge to work out settings that wouldn’t compromise the look I was after too much. Excited to get out with again and play around want my settings and techniques more.

california dreaming.

Last week I had the opportunity to escape the cold for a week and head down to Santa Barbara to shoot a library of lifestyle images for UCSB’s new bike share system, HOPR. It was a jam packed week with non-stop shoots, however I managed to squeeze a couple of sunrises and sunsets which completely took my breath away.

starting a blog.

I take so many photos when I’m out hiking and adventuring, but there’s only one or two of the many I take that I actually share on my instagram. So I thought it would be a nice idea to start a little blog on here to showcase my shots from these days out and give a little write up where I was and the camera settings I was playing with.

This photo was from the Pacific Coast Highway on my drive up to Santa Barbara from LAX. Such a dreamy road to drive!
