Photos of the Month
During backcountry trips, Alex Spaeth is inspired by landscapes both big and small that make him pause and think how fortunate he is to be there to appreciate fleeting, yet lasting, moments.
Photography provides this photographer a means to capture and absorb some of the beautiful places he has been lucky enough to explore and share those experiences with others.
Photography has pushed Riley Rhodes out of his comfort zone and has helped him with social anxiety. What matter is that I’m happy with the art that I am creating.
January's photo of the month is like something out of a storybook: A giant waterfall flows off of a cliff and into the sea during an epic sunset.
"Nature speaks what is written upon it, and anyone who reads and acknowledges with an open heart will receive the positivity it speaks," writes our photographer of the month.
November's "photo" of the month takes some artistic liberties: alpine larch trees reflected in water paint a picturesque watercolor painting.
Our photographer of the month learned that his preconceptions about "the perfect photo" quickly dissipated as the sun rose over Glacier Peak.
The stories behind my photos end up being my favorite part, as they usually involve some pretty interesting adventures.
As our photographer of the month has moved into adulthood, he's decided to slow down and focus on the parts of landscapes that are most important to him.
The sunrise casts colors of glowing embers across Dragontail and Colchuck peaks, nicely mirrored in Colchuck Lake. Learn more about what it took to get this shot!
June's photographer of the month explains the amount of effort it requires to capture the perfect shot of the Northern Lights. He's a self-proclaimed "Aurora chaser."
The bleakness of the overcast weather to which we’ve become accustomed, lights coastal scenery through mellow, soft lighting. One part haunting, one part sublime.
