Honeymoon pt3. An overnight stay in a cabin in the woods at Twain Harte, complete with waterfall and hot tub 🤗 Then on to Yosemite. Wow, just wow. Mind blowing. The 4mile trail up to glacier point is closer to 5miles (each way) though and there is the small matter of the 3200ft climb 🥵 but still well worth it, even in 30+deg heat. Also got to meet a bear 🐻 up close (very) in the wild ☑️ Excuse the awful video, getting to safety was number one concern, then I cocked up the video as I was still buzzing a bit 😂 #twainharte#yosemite#lazyzresort#glacierpoint
Yosemite is clearly still recovering from the ravages of 2018’s Ferguson fire, which destroyed thousands of acres. Stark evidence as to the fiercely destructive power of rising temperatures and forest fire 💔
El Cap. She captivates the best climbers in the world. From @alexhonnold to @tommycaldwell You may have seeing the movie “Free Solo” when Alex climbs the face of El Cap without ropes. However “The Dawn Wall” with Tommy Caldwell is just as inspiring and an amazing story of dedication, determination and overcoming great setback. One of the most inspiring movies I’ve seen in a long time. If you watch it you will always remember Pitch 15! #yosemite#elcapitan

Lynn Hill, inspiring female climbers for generations. Described as both one of the best female climbers in the world and one of the best climbers of all time, she was one of the first successful women in the sport, shaping rock climbing for women and helping it gain wider popularity and sexual equality. She famously made the first free ascent of the The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite Valley

A two-mile run from Taft Point to Sentinel Dome left us out of breath but enthusiastic about capturing what promised to be a spectacular sunset. Earlier my workshop client and I had been working at Taft when I noticed high clouds filling the sky with texture and definition, and a gap below the clouds on the western horizon—ideal conditions for dynamic light.
Photographers are always trying to predict when a good sunset will appear, and it’s usually a futile effort. This day, however, the odds seemed to be in our favor, making the run worthwhile. I found a pleasing scene halfway up the dome and left the camera and tripod in place while working with my client on his photography. Over the next twenty minutes, we are treated to a most stunning light show, and I occasionally ran back to my camera and captured a few frames.

Sequoias make me smile ☺
I truly love these trees with my whole being. Walking among them every day is a privilege I do not take for granted. Unwavering and tranquil for millennia, these beautiful giants are my peace of mind. 🌲
Love this Florida family, also wanted to adopt their kids, but mom and dad really wants to keep them. They have a great story and I hope when I get some time to blog this military family wedding, to share it properly.
