angelajpayne Backlit fuzzy stuff, Penitente Canyon. I spent a few days last week sport climbing in this hidden gem of an area in Southern Colorado. These things reminded me of my hair when I was a kid, or something out of a Dr. Seuss book. The plants were fun, the climbing was more fun, and the crew was the MOST fun. 1d

angelajpayne The perfect perch, Oregon. We wanted to make it up there to enjoy the sunset, but the death choss wasn't too inviting. I guess you need wings to get the best views around, although this one wasn't such a bad consolation prize. 5d

angelajpayne Suspended leaf & spider, Oregon. Sometimes when I travel to competitions I don't get to see much more than the climbing gym, but last weekend I had the pleasure of exploring the coast not far from Portland. We were told that bluebird days like the one we enjoyed are rare, but I'm suspicious that the locals just say that to keep people like me from moving there . What a gorgeous place!!! 2w

angelajpayne Requisite aspen leaf & water droplets photo. I am the gazillionth person to take and post this shot, but I guess sometimes the classic scenes are irresistible. The leaves are dying quickly in The Park and these water droplets came from snow, which made for an interesting day of bouldering. A dusting of Winter definitely makes Chaos Canyon beautiful, but I hope Fall sticks around a little longer. 3w

angelajpayne Fall comes to Nymph Lake. I could probably dedicate an entire account to Nymph Lake reflection photos. It is my most favorite lake, and something about it draws me back in time and time again. So, here is yet another photo of the same place, this time with a reflection of Long's Peak and a new burst of color around the edges. 4w

angelajpayne Happy Fall! My favorite season has officially begun. Time for pumpkin pie, squash soup, changing leaves and prime climbing weather. Let the Fall fun begin! 4w

angelajpayne Aspen leaves on black rock. It was really looking like Fall out in the mountains this weekend, even though the balmy temperatures didn't quite match the scene. I took tons of shots of the gorgeous trees and am ready to bombard you all with autumnal photos. I figured some simple leaves are a good place to start. 4w

angelajpayne Gneiss, light. 'Tis the season for crisp days in the talus fields of Colorado. I don't feel like I've hit my stride yet in my hiking game this season, but a few trips to Upper Chaos Canyon this week might fix that. It's never too late to try, and if nothing else, I know that scenes like this are waiting at the end of the long slog. 1mon

angelajpayne Bright green and boulders, Chile. We ran around this area on the first day of our trip, and I couldn't believe how vibrant the vegetation was. It was the tail end of Winter, but the color was brighter than any I've seen during a Colorado Summer. The grasses were (literally) greener in Chile, but it's still great to be back home 1mon

angelajpayne View from the cliff in Chile. On our last day, we went sport climbing at Las Chilcas. I got pumped, scared and humbled by the long routes, but the view was spectacular. Plus, we spent the day in the company of our awesome new Chilean friends and some massive condors that circled the cliff. It was yet another great reminder that sending is secondary to the bigger experience. THANKS, CHILE! You're pretty fantastic. 1mon

angelajpayne Climber and cacti, Chile. I've spent the past four days in Santiago for the Mountain Hardwear Climbing Series. The community has been incredibly welcoming and the place is amazing. Yesterday we had the pleasure of getting outside for a day of bouldering with the locals. The boulders were great, the psych was high, and the surroundings were gorgeous...it doesn't get too much better than that! 1mon

angelajpayne Long's Peak, CO. Last weekend I was in Munich, next weekend I'll be in Chile. But this weekend, I'm at home in Colorado, so of course that called for a trip to The Park. Feeling pretty lucky to have the opportunity to travel to amazing new places, and maybe even luckier to have a home base like this to return to. 2mon

angelajpayne Olympiapark, Munich. Last weekend's competition was held here, at the venue that was built for the 1972 Summer Olympics. The wall was situated under the unique tensile covering, the edge of which is shown here. From afar, the venue looks like cobwebs on grass built by bionic spiders or maybe a circus tent built by the Jetsons. Whatever it resembles, it is one of the most spectacular venues I've ever seen. 2mon
  •   rowanlubke Thanks, I was wondering - that place looked amazing. It's held up very well. 2mon
  •   climber62 I've been there! It's so cool! 2mon
  •   hatch_tim I'm not sure any of the subsequent Olympic venues have stood the test of time so well. 2mon

angelajpayne In transit. A quick but enjoyable trip to Munich for Bouldering World Championships is already coming to an end. I spent most of my down time roaming around learning to use my new camera, and I am completely in love with all the options and challenges it presents. But still, the simplicity of snapping iPhone photos is often irresistible, like when I saw this neat sculpture and classic travel scene during my long layover in Toronto. 2mon
  •   how.weird Amazing shot! 2mon
  •   ecbguerilla Come on your next trip to the magic wood or font! You're welcome in europe 2mon
  •   thr61 Great choice of b&w @angelajpayne and there is something about people moving through these transitional spaces. Take a look at my Ellis Island shot to see a similar sense, albeit from a different time. 2mon
  •   lindmarkjohn @ladzinski has it right, really excellent capture. 2mon
  •   jonesallenart Nice 1mon
  •   jcreaturetravel Love your work. 2w
  •   lizzyasher Beautiful. It's also potentially on my list. 2w

angelajpayne Crickets by the pond. I snapped multiple photos of this grass at sunset before I realized it was covered in crickets. It's always a neat moment when my perception of something suddenly changes like that. These guys were quiet, still and very photogenic -- not bad company for the evening. 2mon
  •   davinbagdonas @angelajpayne would be awesome to see some great photos of their feet. Love the bugs and nice work! 2mon
  •   angelajpayne I will post some on my website in the future @davinbagdonas. I'm not positive it is unique to grasshoppers, but they have neat bulb-like things on their feet! And thanks! 2mon
  •   klericksen Your pics are insane. I have to visit boulder and id love to buy some of your work! 2mon
  •   angelajpayne @klericksen Thanks!! Come visit Boulder for sure, let's catch up! And I'd of course be happy to sell you some pics as well :) 2mon

angelajpayne Suspended dew drops and morning fog by Lake Haiyaha. Today I'm returning to Chaos Canyon with a weight off my shoulders and no agenda. I'm sure I'll acquire a new project soon enough, but for now I'm pretty content with the idea of just being in my favorite place again. 2mon

angelajpayne Mike Libecki explores an iceberg in Greenland, 2012. Exactly two years ago, I was en route to the middle of nowhere for the trip of a lifetime. I have yet to find a place that is more beautiful than Greenland, and I have yet to meet a person who is more adventurous than Mike Libecki. Some places, and people, are just built from different stuff. 3mon

angelajpayne Sun catches sculpted snow in Chaos Canyon. Most of the boulders in this area spend the winter hibernating beneath impressive amounts of snow. When it finally begins to melt away from the rock, rapidly changing works of art decorate the boulder field for a short time. 3mon

angelajpayne The sun sets on a long-term project. I posted a version of this photo back in 2012, when I was 2 years into working on Freaks of the Industry. I remember this evening well, when the sky caught fire and distracted me from my frustration for a while. Over the course of 60+ days of effort, I have experienced more emotions and beautiful moments than I ever imagined a single piece of rock could bring. SO HAPPY to finish this one. What an adventure... 3mon

angelajpayne Alpine pool, Tyndall Gorge. It's not uncommon for me to fill my phone's memory with photos during a day outside. Sometimes I instantly like one as I'm taking it, but more commonly one jumps out later when I'm looking at what I took. This is a random shot that I kept coming back to, probably because it shows a random spot in The Park that always draws me back in. 3mon
  •   pussinboots03 Awesome picture! 3mon
  •   franckzua Great shot 3mon
  •   paul9040 Amazing 3mon
  •   enormocast One of my worst problems bouldering is having patience to rest between tries. Seems like you've found a remedy for that. 3mon
  •   angelajpayne Thanks guys! @enormocast yep--it's a great way to force a rest period. And it's pretty fun too! 3mon
  •   ogawas I really like your feed you have some truly amazing stuff here! Keep it up! 3mon
  •   angelajpayne Thanks @ogawas! 3mon
