Glacier National Park has been…

Glacier National Park has been on my list of places to go for a while... but the trip I planned a couple weeks ago with @whiskeybowen @ryantoswald @missjessbess & @megavai left us lacking for time as well as clear weather.. we were hoping for an amazing sunset, as well as clear skies for the Milky Way, but instead we got these overcast clouds and then a blizzard!! The color on the trees was amazing but I didn’t even get a chance to shoot photos of it.. thank you to Ryan for scouting ahead to help find this location; I was inspired by @perrikschelatphotography’s amazing image from this location and wanted to find it but was so limited in time.. —- This is a focus blend of two shots; one for foreground and one for sky... it’s also a content aware scaled image because I wanted the foreground and sky to fit into this Instagram 4:5 crop and didn’t care so much about the center of the image... yes the rocks are really colorful; perhaps not as vibrant as I made them here but the colors all exist!! —— ISO 100 F8.0 4seconds —— @tokinausa 24-70mm @ 31mm @canonusa 6DMK1 @slikusa 634-CFL —— . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #glaciernps #glaciernationalpark #glaciernationalparkmontana #montana #kalispellmontana #kalispell #whitefishmontana #coloredrocks #tokina2470 #perrikschelatphotography #usinterior #nationalpark #nationalparks #goparks #6dmkii #canon6dmarkii

On this day last year…

On this day last year I was in Vancouver and went on a fabulous adventure to shoot photos at this lake... well today, I am again in Vancouver but working so not going on epic adventures this time unfortunately... at least I have Lovely memories from last year!! —— Repost @narcissisticnomad ・・・ So the other day I went adventuring to this mountain lake near Vancouver and posted a photo of me on this same slippery tree trunk (almost fell climbing it earlier in evening).. I can't get over how beautiful this lake was as the sun was going down and all the colors on the trees as we drove to it.. The true adventure was to take a night shot here so that's what I did!! Thank you to my friend, Cory for braving the road on this adventure and @cody.roy.visuals for the location suggestion!! If you want to know how I shot this, head to @tracyleephotos and click on the similar photo --- . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

Respectfully I honor the beauty of and history of this place... this little detour here cost us a sunset somewhere else but I truly think it was worth it... —- . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #wanderwomaninc #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

Since I didn’t get to…

Since I didn’t get to see Morraine Lake, at least I got to see this one... and it’s hundreds of tourists lol.. I am used to going places that are a bit more difficult to get to so therefore a lot less people and even though beautiful, all the places I went to were uber crowded... but at least I checked a few off!

#TBT somewhere in NM or…

#TBT somewhere in NM or CO.. —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ Night 4 of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase... I’m losing track of days; I just know that we’re on day 7 of this trip... I think we left New Mexico on Monday and as we were driving through we saw this amazing butte so decided that this was our comp for the night.. we pulled off and shot before the moon rose but we wanted to get the moonlight on the butte so we waited.. This was taken after the half moon had risen above the surrounding mountains... can’t believe I got so much detail with the moon so high in the sky.. this is 20 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR.. make sure you check the settings below! —— ISO 1600 F1.4 35mm 10 seconds Processed in LR & PS —— @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —- . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure

#TBT to a dark cold…

#TBT to a dark cold night... #Repost I had an amazing trip back and forth all over Oregon last week with @smpetersonphotography @amymichelle4 @safatajphoto @drdarius7 and many more I met along the way! —- On Thursday I took off with @drdarius7 in search of MW Comps.. on Friday we hit waterfalls, hot springs, and then the incredible and amazing Crater Lake... we got there in time for exploring & sunset... we started at Disco Point and hiked along the rim looking for a spot that was far enough NW to be able to get this shot without having to hike all the way to the Watchman. We found this point about a mile and a half in and decided that it was our comp! —- We napped in the car for a bit until about 1030 and then hiked to our spot.. while we were setting up our cameras and getting focus, we couldn’t believe it but we heard voices approaching. They must have seen our lights because they turned away although we heard them nearby throughout the night. Turns out through social media, @pnw.zack figured out it was us out there that night, lol... —- I was having issues with focusing my camera and after opening it up and checking the sensor, I determined there was a residue on the mirror; I cleaned it off as best as I could, got my camera focused and then started shooting. @drdarius7 had already been shooting a while by this time.. I’m anal about my panos with tons of overlap so this 168 image stacked shot took a couple hours to shoot in the freezing cold.. this is a 2 row vertical pano; top row has 14 frames of 10 stacked images each and bottom row has 14 frames of 2 three minute exposures each.. I stacked all images in Starry Landscape Stacker and then amazingly enough, Lightroom EASILY put together the entire pano in about 2 minutes. I thought I I was going to have to blend top and bottom in PS.. - This image is cropped by Instagram and the entire image is actually a lot wider.. and looks way better lol... —— Sky 10 stacked images per frame ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds — Foreground 2 stacked images per frame ISO 2000 F2.8 180 seconds —- @tokinausa 16-28 @ 24 @slikusa 634-cf @canonusa 6DMK1 - #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa

I finally made it to…

I finally made it to Glacier National Park for the first time only to be met with inclement weather and clouds... while I’m very disappointed by it, I’m still happy I made it there and happy I was there with my friends @whiskeybowen & @ryantoswald... it started dumping snow very soon after this photo. I guess I’m going to try to come back next year! —- . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

Well I wasn’t quite ready…

Well I wasn’t quite ready for winter and was hoping my trip north would be for fall color... saw plenty of it on the way up but arrived in Banff under the cover of a snow storm and instead of blue skies, and flurries of colorful leaves, I ended up with gray skies and flurries of snow... either are gorgeous in their own way, I just wasn’t quite ready to accept the cold. This storm also kept me from visiting Morraine Lake which was high on my list... who’s not ready for winter either? —- 📸 @whiskeybowen —-
