The Big Road Trip

In May 2014 I invited my brother and my mother for a road trip through Washington, Oregon and California. A week-long drive that took us from the Olympic Peninsula down to San Francisco in what was my first ever landscape assignment. Besides enjoying the company of my family, I focused my photography mainly on three habitats: the rainforest, the coast and the redwood forest. The skills and the equipment for this trip were completely different than what I am accustomed to, but that was what made it so special and unique. We drove over 1,300 miles and enjoyed the great outdoors of the west coast. We listened to great music, ate some great food, had some amazing beer and above all, we strengthen our connection by inserting ourselves in the heart of nature.

  1. Wow! Those are some great shots. Sounds like an epic trip too!

    We’d love for you to rate a few of the places you visited on your trip. I’m sure there were places you were pleasantly surprised by and maybe some that were overrated. We’d love to hear about it! If you submit a rating on Yonderlist, we’ll post links back to your blog. Hope you’ll join the conversation at http://yonderlist.wordpress.com/

  2. Absolutely amazing photos! When I see images like these, it reminds me that I really need to start exploring the USA more. There are so many beautiful places right in my own country and sometimes I forget this and go abroad to find them. Maybe I will start my explorations out west.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. These photos are amazing! it sounds like a great road trip as well – what camera do you use? I want to take something light weight and easy to use travelling with me that will be able to produce nice images, any recommendations?

  4. Wonderful photos, and sounds like a very fun road trip.

  5. Whoa! I was just on a west coast road trip last summer and wish I heard about the tide going into that rock hole… what’s the name of that place?

    Wonderful pictures, eye-candy… sounds like a nice road trip too, good for recharging.

  7. These are stunning photographs. I live in British Columbia, so I’m used to scenery like this, but my pictures never do it justice. Yours are works of art. Bravo!

  8. Beautiful Pictures! Im living in Seattle and would love to do a trip like that

    You take absolutely amazing photos… they really take my breath away! Really nice to bump into some super cool blogs once in a while 🙂
    I would really appreciate if anyone would go and check out my indiegogo-campaign (and maybe even consider supporting?) on indiegogo.com/projects/project-adventure
    it would really mean the world to me. Thank you and have a nice day!
