Rock above, air below. Rappelling off a fun little four pitch climb in southern Utah. Shooting for @backcountry

The smell of land. I’ll never forget the sensation of smelling plants and soil for the first time after a month at sea. Before we could even see the Big Island, shrouded in clouds, the smells of land drifted on the waves.

I shot this photo in the middle of the night, sailing towards the center of the Milky Way thousands of miles from the nearest light source. As you can imagine the camera moves with the boat, creating those interesting star trails in the sky while the boat stayed motionless relative to the camera. Nights like these were common on Velella, no lights to be seen but for the stars in the sky, a dim glow from the instruments humming away. Trying to catch some sleep, often filled with the most vivid dreams.

There’s plenty of time for reflection on a long sail, lots to look at, but it’s rare that something needs your attention. (But when it does, it needs attention now!)
