I'm still very knew to astrophotography, but it has quickly become one of my favorite hobbies. There is nothing more humbling than standing by yourself in the middle of the woods surrounded by the noises of the wilderness and not being able to see their origins and looking to the sky and seeing millions of galaxies, all infinitely larger than yourself 👽

I usually try not to post the same image to both my photography Instagram and my personal Instagram, but I figured I'd make an exception for this. To think, I've lived here for going on four years now and I've just now gotten around to taking pictures of the Capitol. Also, feeling the ice crack beneath your feet while you are walking on the lake is a rather unnerving feeling! .

Reposting this, because after just over a year into my adventure with photography, this is still one of my favorite images that I've ever taken. So naturally, it deserves to be shared more than once. Also, with some other exciting news, I've recently invested in some new equipment which will hopefully help me to continue to increase the quality of my pictures along with many helpful hints from YouTubers such as @heatonthomas and @nickpagephotography If you haven't checked these two out, I strongly encourage it because they are not only experts at producing incredible images, but they are also very entertaining as well!

Low quality photo, but last night's star display was incredible. To my photography friends, what are some of the best tips you've learned about shooting the night sky? Anything from gear to techniques and programs for post processing would help, because I am very new to it!

Made the most of a unusually cold week of weather in Florida with highs just reaching into the 50's. While it meant less time on the beach, it was always comforting to remind myself that the temperature in Wisconsin was often below zero 🌴

In honor of global wildlife conservation day, enjoy a picture of my friendly neighborhood grizzly bear. While this particular bear calls Vilas Zoo its home, I've also been lucky enough to see them in their natural habitat. Watching one stand on its hind legs 30 yards away in the next fishing hole downstream can be intimidating, but it's a moment that can make you feel equally humbled and at one with nature 🐻

In the next few weeks, I'll be resharing some of my favorite photos from my adventures this year. It's hard to believe it's already December and 2018 is just around the corner. But 2017 has already brought so many experiences and I can't wait to see what next year has in store. If you have a moment, scroll through my gallery and let me know which photos have been your favorites in my first year experimenting with photography 📷
