From the moment Joshua Earle first joined Unsplash back in 2014, he’s been captivating the community with his photography showcasing nature and the outdoors (you can read why he chooses to let people use his photos for free over here). And now, he’s hit the road traveling across America and sharing photos of the places he visits along the way.

It’s been one month since Joshua landed in Colorado to embark on what he’s called, The Big Trip — and in that time he’s already visited 5 states, travelled 5464 miles, walked 340422 steps, and had 71 coffees. Plus — luckily for us, he’s been taking countless photos everywhere he goes.

From early morning hikes through the Great Sand Dunes to exploring the depths of Zebra Slot Canyon — at its’ core, Joshua’s photography showcases the vastness of nature and evokes the excitement and awe of exploring your surroundings. And with what has become his trademark shot on Unsplash — a figure standing, turned away from the camera — among an array of stunning scenes — Joshua is able to examine the interaction between People and Place, and use photography as a tool to reflect on how small we really are through his skilful use of scale.

His next stop? Calgary. And Joshua will be bringing us along for the ride on September 28th, when he takes over the Unsplash Instagram. So be sure to follow along on our Instagram stories to get a little peak into his adventures.
