The Island. Lower Mesa Falls, Ashton Idaho

I hiked down for a solid 30 minutes of rocks, boulders, and fallen trees to reach the lower mesa falls. Though the outlook point is very pretty and has a nice view, I was wanting something more up close and personal. This is an image of the rock column that was right by the falls with the mist hitting it softly. It was during the golden hour aka sunset lighting so the side lighting hit the mist perfectly and I had about 10 minutes to soak it in and capture it. After waiting 3 weeks to go shoot the water fall and then once I saw the rocky column I waited another 3 hours till the lighting was where I wanted it, I must say, it sure felt good to capture the image.

As for the message of the image, it's all about atonement, meditation, separation from the world, not clinging to things, allowing yourself to breathe, and being that lush little patch of grass on top of that rock. If we can not worry about anything but soaking in that Living Water, Light, Rock, etc. then we will be able to thrive in a not-so-friendly environment.
While shooting around the falls, it was so interesting to observe how many rocks there were everywhere with barely anything green around it. But once you got right up by the water, there was such a different and diverse ecosystem waiting to be had. There was green, lush grass and moss, insects, streams, trees and bushes. But it wasn't till you got 10 feet or so from the river. Any farther away, and it was as hard and rigid as could be. I felt it was quite the metaphor for our spiritual life.

Exploring is something I have loved doing all my life. It use to be curiosity but now it's more than that. It's finding what life has to offer. Experiences, knowledge, positions and perspectives, things you will never know if you don't go find them. Too many times our mind and experiences around us live in a small cubical shaped box. All we ever see are the walls around us. They become natural to us. We get comfortable in the box. But where real learning comes for me, is getting out of the box. Running, leaping, digging out of the box. It doesn't matter how I do it, as long as I do it. For it isn't until we open the door that we can finally see what life really looks like.

I believe it's more about who takes the picture and not necessarily how expensive your equipment is. So I did a photo shoot with my friend Cassie and all the pictures where taken with my iPhone 4 :)

Website coming soon!

I've been lacking in the posting photo's dept. lately, partly due to the fact that I'm styaing super busy with school. But, I'm also working on my photo website and getting that up and running!So, stay posted for updates :)


The concept of hands has been on my mind for over 2 years, pondering how much good and yet how much bad they do.

I feel conflicted more times than not because of this duality. This photograph shows the fight between dark and light, broken and whole, cold and warm. Having my arms twisted up almost confused as to which way is right. My back turned, ashamed to face what's in front of me.
