Isla San Esteban, Baja California- An entire morning spent lugging gear through an arroyo on a particularly hot day, and there was one creature that kept alluding the camera-the spiny-tailed iguana. It was the perfect time of day for these critters to start crawling up cardon cacti in search of yummy flowers, but none were visible. After finally finding a photogenic fellow, it was amazing to witness his determination as he proceeded to jump and crawl from cactus to cactus, sometimes falling all the way back down to the base and repeating the ascent. Finally he reached the top and began munching on his reward. Now you know where the expression "leaping lizards" comes from...

The storm clouds rolling in cut our sunset time-lapse session short at Buckhorn Springs. Amazingly the thunderstorm transformed into a snow storm over night and we awoke to a winter wonderland.

Snowy surprise- We had to pack up earlier than expected at Buckhorn Springs when the thunderstorms rolled in. In the morning we were shocked to find a winter wonderland...in May! All the seasons at once in #Hellscanyon. #epic #landscape #pretty #trees #beautiful #snow #nature #film
