Smart Tips and Tricks for Taking Seriously Awesome Outdoor and Travel Photos

My Instagram feed is about 50/50 with friends and outdoorsy travel photographers. I try to get out in wilderness as much as I can, and when I can't, I try to at least keep some photographic inspiration readily at hand. And let's be honest, probably all of us have tried our hand at capturing that gorgeous vista to which we couldn't quite do justice...

created at: 03/02/2012

The rope was anchored to the rock in five different places using some seriously heavy duty gear. The swing itself is 150 ft, and the intial free fall 130 ft. And the best part: they captured everything with stunning quality in this beautiful video.

An All-In-One Yard Care Tool

As a teenager, I was the yard care master. As the only son and grandson in my family, I managed lawns, shrubs, and trees for most of my family and half the block. It wasn't summer unless my entire life was stained with grass, and I learned to love music when listening to my bright red My First Sony cassette Walkman and the tapes I'd make from albums from the library.

Then, I got real summer jobs in college. And now, I'm an urban dweller, and don't even own a lawnmower, let alone a hedge trimmer, edger, weed whacker, and the like. But someday, I'll have a garage, and a yard to care for, and a whole pegboard full of powered lawn care tools.
