Sunrise on Tavarua Island, Fiji. What a week surrounded by so much beauty on so many levels. 🙏🏼
This is what you look like after spending 4-5 hours underground in a cave system called “The Rattlesnake”. Notice how happy Garrett looks after he finally found something that absolutely scared the sh*t out of me. Crawling on my back and belly in the dark with barely enough room to breath, the mud and water was often inches from your face was terrifying. At times, you had to hold your breath and go under the water in the dark. Of course, they left me behind as and I had to follow their slithering tracks through the scariest thing I have ever experienced in a long time. The whole time I was praying that it wouldn’t start raining. Did anyone check the weather before we went down here? 😳 I could only imagine what that would like. Hours later we plopped out the side of a cliff onto a pile of sheep poop in the middle of nowhere. You can image what that felt and looked like. 💩 I have never been so happy to see the light of day! - #NewZealand #caving #birth #JustinBastienPhotography #travel
Early season on Cathedral Peak in Tuolumne Meadows. Nothing like endless miles of post holing in early spring conditions for the summit.
#thebeast @bearwalsh photographed for @patagonia in the Channel Islands after his back to back wins in the Molokai and Catalina paddle races. This was such a fun shoot with a great crew. We started at 3AM from Ventura Harbor to catch the sunrise at Anacapa Island and then raced back to shoot three more locations before Zeb hopped on his flight back home to Australia that evening. What a day! Thanks to @curlymedia @andrew__reinhart @bearwalsh for making it all come together and being so much fun to work with. - #ChannelIsandsNationalPark #paddle #patagonia #Anacapa #zebwalsh #justinbastienphotography
