Hello from Vancouver, Washington.
I'm back in the PNW and it feels amazing. This place was home for more than 5 years, it was here where I fell in love with nature and photography, and I couldn't be more excited about getting to spend the next few weeks in this very special place.
This means that the road trip across the Southwest is over, though. These are some of the numbers:
- 23 days on the road
- more than 4,000 miles
- 7 states
- 4 hotel, 3 AirBnBs, 1 car
- ~2,500 photos
- dozens of hours of footage
You never know how things will turn out when you are on the road for so long. We had everything booked ahead of time which could mean that a problem with one of the hotels or AirBnBs, or even worse, a mechanical issue with the car, could ruin the whole trip. A chain reaction of sorts.
Luckily, everything was near perfect and I couldn't ask for more. I had an amazing time and I believe I made some of my best images on this trip.
Now it's time to rest for a few days before starting to photograph the amazing places of the PNW. I will be using this time to reflect on the work produced in the last few weeks, and of course to share it. Not only images and videos but also some thoughts I've had and lessons learned in the field.
