Escapes into Landscapes

From a young age, my happy place has always been the outdoors. I’ve always felt the need to travel to far away destinations and explore the wonderful places that surround me. I’ve been able to capture these wonderful places through landscape photography. When I find myself in one of these places I am completely free of all the stress and pressures in life – It lifts my spirit. Nature refuels and refreshes me, sending me away with positivity toward every aspect in life.

All of these photos are taken throughout the beautiful and unique parts of California ranging from destinations along the coast of Monterey, Big Sur, and even inland at Lake Tahoe and Tioga Pass. There is something special to each location and something new to find every time I visit.

Every one of these places has scenic views that any tourist or nature seeker can enjoy. And if you are willing to explore a little off the beaten path, you may find some of your own hidden gems.
