a 2020 photo dump

happy new year to y’all!

I hope you, reader, had a restful and reinvigorating Christmas and New Year holiday! I certainly enjoyed the break from deadlines, work, and studying. Stepping away from the routine and rhythm of everyday life is necessary and healthy in order to restore your well-being. So far, I’ve filled my time with catching up on audio books, painting with watercolors, working on graphic design projects, and cleaning things I’ve neglected over the semester.

I thought I would take you through a few highlights of my photo reel from the past year as we wrap up 2020 and begin with this fresh slate of the new year. I’ve edited a few of these photos using Adobe Lightroom and the photos app on my phone.

Dec 24 – For Christmas Eve, I cooked and baked brunch for my family. A few of the delicious items were cinnamon sugar scones, lemon glazed muffins, and a spinach-mushroom-potato quiche.

Dec 19 – We were on our way to a hike and the foggy, overcast weather was so cozy and lovely.

Nov 24 – During a nighttime stroll, the sky was so clear that I was able to glimpse the moon and a few twinkling stars.

Nov 7 – While waiting for my sister to take her exam, my parents and I went on a short hike. Taking a hike after not hiking for several months and while wearing jeans was death. But the view was so rewarding at the top!

Sept 19 – A trip to the beach :))

Aug 13 – Shoshone Falls, Idaho. I managed to catch a beautiful rainbow arc too!

Aug 6 – Going-to-the-sun Road, Glacier National Park, Montana. I love the contrast of the glaciers in the background with the tall, majestic trees.

Aug 5 – Trail of the Cedars, Glacier National Park, Montana. I waited for a good while to catch this shot – why can’t people pass by faster?

Aug 1 – Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Aren’t the colors gorgeous and vibrant? What you don’t see though is the extreme heat and stench – there’s no tree cover, so you’re out in the bright sun all the time.

Jul 28 – Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. We stopped on the side of the road as we were driving in.

Jun 29 – I took a socially-distanced walk with a friend, who wrote this post and this post incidentally, after not seeing for a while at our local park.

Here’s to 2021! I hope that you stay safe and healthy during this time.

live creatively,
