colerise this man is my hero. after riding around Wadi Rum, taking photos all day, my favorite lens fell from my pack. into soft sand. somewhere in the vastness of the desert. as I'm shooting sunset, this Bedouin man appears out of nowhere, his hands behind his back and a half smile on his face. "Are you missing a piece of your camera?" I don't know how he found it, or how he found me, but I'll leave that to the magic of the region, and the kindness of the locals. #wadirum #shareyourjordan #litely 5h

colerise woke up super early to have Petra to myself for a while. this was taken further down the canyon from the treasury as the light creeped in. the local bedouin caretaker sitting in the sun shows you how truly massive these structures are. #petra #shareyourjordan #litely 1d

colerise made a friend on a hike in Petra, up thousands of stairs through a canyon that leads to one of the many structures carved into the cliffs. unfortunately he didn't fit in my backpack. watch the editing process on snapchat: colerise #petra #shareyourjordan #litely 2d

colerise Venus over Petra, shining through moonlit clouds. I had the site to myself for 15 minutes before the crowds were let in, so imagine being surrounded by candles with nothing but the sound of the wind and the wild dogs reverberating through the canyon. Unforgettable. Catch the editing process on snapchat! #petra #shareyourjordan #litely 5d

colerise spent the day exploring crusader castles built in 1100’s, on grounds with layered history dating back to the iron age! headed to Petra next - for the behind the scenes, follow me on snapchat: colerise #karakcastle #shareyourjordan #litely 6d

colerise Running through Wadi Rum, one of the most epic locations both historically and geologically - from Lawrence of Arabia to the natural land bridges and canyons. Spent the day exploring the valley by trucks and camels and the night sharing tea and smoking shishah (hookah) with the local bedouins. You have to see the sunsets here.

colerise floating high in the lowest place on earth. the dead sea is 9.6 times saltier than the ocean, making you buoyant enough to comfortably check the stock market without getting the pages (or your camera) wet. to get the behind the scenes, add me on snapchat: colerise #jordan #deadsea #litely 1w

colerise here’s one of a few photos you may see in Apple’s latest iPhone campaign, which is both incredibly humbling to be a part of & incredibly exciting when considering how far mobile photography has come. not only can we take photos on par with a standalone camera that cost $1000 a decade ago, we can professionally edit them and instantly share them with a global audience… all from a device that shows us what satellites are currently flying overhead and reminds us to call grandma on her birthday. #nutso #ShotOniPhone #litely 4w
