Thunderbomb Surf Camp

#sunrise at the Boom in #nicaragua. So grateful we finally got to experience this beautiful country - also super grateful for the early morning surf session preparations that made it possible to witness gorgeous views like this.⁣

Thunderbomb Surf Camp

Something else that @thunderbombsurfcamp has going for it besides barrels in paradise is that there’s little to no light pollution where they’re located. That means at the right time of year, you have front row seats to watch the Milky Way drift across the night sky from the comfort of your hammock!⁣
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
⁣Luckily for us, the week we were there the Milky Way was visible in the Southwest skies and there was a new moon - so we were treated to super dark skies and a full on milky way show. Here’s my beautiful wife enjoying her view of the #nicaragua starry night and milky way.⁣

Thunderbomb Surf Camp

Sharing some photos from last week’s trip to @thunderbombsurfcamp in #nicaragua - had such a blast! One of the best surf trips of my life. The surf was epic - every day was at least overhead with a couple of days just going mental. Couldn't have asked for a better setup. We were totally taken care of by the staff from the first step off the plane. Woke up every day to coffee and a quick bite, then a short sunrise drive to the beach, surf for a few hours then head back to the house for breakfast or - if you can't tear yourself away from overhead barrels and the chef’s in a good mood - get breakfast burritos delivered to you at the beach! Then back to the house for lunch and a quick nap before getting back on it, conditions permitting. If not, hang out and watch the thunderstorms roll in before a beautiful sunset in paradise.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I really can't describe how amazingly warm, hospitable and humble the Nicaraguan people are. The staff at Thunderbomb are no exception. From the big stuff like making sure the trucks are loaded with boards, snacks, and water to the little things like walking my sandals down to the water's edge so I don't burn my feet on the scorching hot mid-day sand after coming in from a surf (Don Juan!). They go out of their way to make your trip as effortless and enjoyable as possible - and they're stoked while doing it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mil gracias por todo y no puedo esperar a regresar! Thanks to Jonathan, German, Esperanza and the whole T-bomb staff for making the trip so memorable. Special thanks to @germanjsue for shooting these photos of me and being a genuinely nice human.

Laguna Beach, California

Link to 4K version in my profile. Day to Night Timelapse of Laguna Beach shot from Badlands Park. Typical of how sunsets have been looking here in SoCal lately! Super cloudy summer, but I thought the lights coming up over downtown Laguna with the sun shining on #longbeach in the background looked pretty cool.

This DTN was shot with a #sonya7RIII, #sony24105mm GM, in Av mode at f1, ISO Auto and Min ISO SS set to 4’ seconds with a 6 second interval. Shooting time was around 1 hour. Processed with #lrtimelapse, #lightroom and after effects.

Redwood City, California

On location in #sanfrancisco filming some green screen video tutorials for work. Tons of challenges with the location itself - a small conference room - including having to duct tape the windows with blackout curtains! But had a great time filming. Whatever is takes to get the shot!

Los Angeles, California

Link to 4K in Bio ☝🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A day to night time lapse from high above the city of #losangeles. My original destination was the #griffithobservatory, however I failed to check to see if there were any events going on. There was. The upper lot was closed, so I had to scramble for another location.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had never been to #runyoncanyonpark, but from looking at the map it seemed like it would have good skyline views. Man! It did not disappoint! We went up Mullholland Drive and parked outside the gated lot (for fear of being locked in after dark) walked out to the end of the overlook about 10 minutes and bam! Full on 180 degree view of the LA skyline.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a super clear night, not a cloud in the sky - I would have wished for a few, but I'll take clear over cloudy here lately. I was a little indecisive on my composition, but in the end I love the way the lights come up and you can see all the activity. Can't wait to go back.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope you enjoy! Link to 4K version in bio

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California, Usa

This is one of those photos that has a bit of a backstory. We called an Uber from our hotel in downtown #sanfrancisco on our only night there and the plan was to cross the bridge and watch the sunset from the other side. On the way, the Uber driver pointed out that the fog had rolled in and the bridge was totally socked in. He suggested instead that we avoid the $8 toll to go over the bridge just to see clouds and go to the The Palace of Fine Arts. I agreed and we had semi-forgotten about the bridge when my wife noticed this sliver view through the trees near where we were walking. Had we been on the other side of the park we would never have seen it. I still wonder what we would have seen from the other side! Next time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
