Standing amongst giants... More like crying amongst giants. Who's with me?! Be strong now.

That moment you wake up in a new place and see it for the first time. Disbelief and pure joy.

My new friend Ryan, @sleepingatlast is coming out with a new EP this Friday! His music is incredible, check him out.

A technique I use to really zone out and absorb a moment... I write a list of all the sounds that I hear. It's pretty surprising what makes up a special place, it's never just visual.

I'm out here in the gorgeous Oregon desert. This place is littered with these giant explosion craters or volcanic maars. Believed to have formed some 14,000 to 18,000 years ago near an ancient basin lake. Check this OUT!
"Basaltic magma intruding near the surface flashed ground water to steam, which blew out overlying rock and soil, along with some juvenile material. As material slid into the hole formed, it closed the vent and the process repeated, eventually forming the huge hole." SO RAD!

Can you see my truck?

In the last 4 years I've covered over 200,000 miles of roads all shapes, sizes, in all conditions. That includes my Jeep almost going off a cliff with me in it, snow covered dirt roads reaching​ almost 3 feet, and miles and miles of empty desert track in the newish Tacoma. It's the vehicle that is just one of the many stages of adventure. I'm so grateful for all my experiences out here and the memories that are piling up. See you out here!

The peace that comes when finally getting to your campsite and the joy of making it home away from home.

An oldie, but a spring goodie. Who's ready for mornings like this?

Andy Best (@andy_best)

Peaks in the fog. South Sister looking good in the neighborhood.

Spring, when it's all happening, everywhere. Time to get out and play!

I really enjoy the fundementals of image creation, be it stills or motion. In that exist the principals of tonal value. These gradients of darks to light help to persuade ones eyes to flow through the frame, it's easiest to explain using black & white. The goal here is so that you don't unintentionally lead ones eyes off the frame by a misleading implied line or a distracting imbalance of weight. It's subtle and can be a subconscious tool or form of witchcraft we use to make a person linger longer. 👍

Friends: "Who wants to go skinny dipping?!" Me: "Hold my beer!" #summer2017

Andy Best (@andy_best)

I unhinged a few giant tubs of gear covered in dirt and love from the previous summer. How I can't wait to play with it all! Here's to all the dirt, discovery, and damn goods nights around a big ol fire in the backcountry.

Wildlife always takes me back to my childhood. The long car rides to the cabin looking into the trees for bigfoot, thanks Harry and the Hendersons. Then my mom, the greatest wildlife spotter that ever lived, would yell. "Ooooo! Another deer!" The fascination was genetic momma!

Don't let the good times pass you by. Carpe Diem! Pick'n up what I'm put'n down?

Andy Best (@andy_best)

If you haven't had the chance, head over to my site for films and prints. If you've had your eye on a certain image and you don't find it in my store, let me know and I'll throw it up. Thanks for the love! Boom goes the dynamite. Link in Bio.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend out there! Where's everyone at?

The remanents of an ancient Redwood feeding the forest below. Even broken, it towered well over 20 feet high and over 8 feet wide. Incredible!

The darkness swallowing up another day, blanketing Oregon's coast with a sparkling night sky. Yes please.
