SCOTTRINCK
Welcome to the iPhone collection of Scott Rinckenberger Photography created with Instagram. To view more of my work visit www.scottrinck.com

I dig life. It's been made very sweet by my wife, nature, outdoor sports, photography, and living creatively.

My photographic method is immersive and minimal. I incorporate photography into adventures. I carry a very small kit and try to cover as much ground as possible on foot, skis and bikes. It is through this kinetic mode that I find my images, or they find me.

Every Sunday morning should look like this. (at Mount St Helens, WA)

I just don’t see the harm in chasing waterfalls…especially on a mountain bike on a hot August weekend. This little beauty is on the Falls Creek trail near St. Helens. (at Mount St Helens, WA)

Caught sunrise on Saturday morning on the Ape Canyon trail at Mt St Helens. Put this place on your list, so beautiful! Thanks @bfletcher5368 @berglr @anya_miller @justushyatt @jacobhase  (at Mount St Helens, WA)

The goats want to know what you’re up to this weekend. Don’t disappoint them by staying indoors, they just won’t understand. (at Washington Pass)

The NW side of Concord Tower has an amazing cave that you climb right through, which gives the route huge bonus points in my book!  (at Washington Pass)

"To disappear into the dense pattern of our natural world and go unnoticed so I might glimpse the beauty in order to truthfully capture it; not for myself, but to share it in hopes it might inspire another to go and see as I have seen." Words and Photo by @oldjamesy, who is the winner of the #iloveplayingoutside photo contest and who will be receiving a signed print from yours truly. Follow @oldjamesy for more beautiful words and images as he hikes the length of the Appalachian Trail. Thanks to everyone who participated, very inspiring all around!

Sticking with the tree theme this week. Beautiful light + beautiful snow + beautiful trees = pure inspiration. More images in this collection at the newly updated www.scottrinck.com. (at Glacier Peak, WA)

For almost every place on earth, there is a tree that will try to survive there, which makes them a bit like us, or is it the other way around? Glacier Peak Wilderness, WA.
+
Do you think this tree thinks of itself as spooky, or big and beautiful? I think both.

3 things I dig: mountain biking at @StevensPass, stopping at Eagle Falls for a post ride dip, and the @stoneandcloth #travelingbenson backpack, the purchase of which funds education scholarships in the developing world. #carryaneducation (at Eagle Falls, WA)
