One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, “What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?” Rachel Carson. #getoutside #california #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitevalley #yosemite_national_park #yosemitenps #travelyosemite #yosemiteconservancy #sierranevada #myhappyplace #halfdome #ahwahneemeadow #nature #natureishealing
Went to Yosemite for the first time a few weeks ago and the views did not disappoint! . . . . #yosemite #yosemitenps #elcapitan #valleyview #travelphotography #travel #landscape #sonyalpha #a6300 #rokinon @yosemitenps @usinterior
Loving this chilly walk to work in jeans and sneaks, but I have that bittersweet feeling that I wasn't quite done with summer... . . . #latergram #travelgram #yosemitenps #backcountry #summer #hiking #gooutside #everythingisbetterbythewater
I was on a flight recently to Cincinnati and got the window seat. I always like to look out the window and try and spot the places I know and have been to - they just looks so different from up above. On the way to Cincinnati I was trying to spot Yosemite but couldn’t. It might have been on the other side I guess. Fast forward to a few days later and I’m on a flight back from Chicago to San Francisco and towards the end of the flight I knew we would fly close to Yosemite or over it. Lo and behold a few minutes later I spot Half Dome ! We flew almost over it and there were clouds covering it ! I couldn’t get a very good shot but still managed to capture this shot... • • • • #nofilter #nofilterneeded #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nps #ynp #bayarea #chicago #cincinnati #airpics #flight #halfdome #northface #cathedralrocks #ig #travel #ig_yosemite #ig_bayarea #shotonaniphone #yosemitenps

Ben & Me; This was Ben's last day in Yosemite Valley after over 20 years of service in Yosemite as part of our Mounted Patrol. I first rode Ben 20 years ago! Easy days ahead for Ben in his well deserved retirement. #rangersheltonjohnson #mountedpatrol #yosemitenps #yosemitenationalpark #horsephotoshoot #mountedpatrolhorse #yosemite #yosemitevalley #americasbestidea #worldheritagesite
First night in Yosemite 📍Glacier Point • 10/11/18
Back home from an amazing weekend in Yosemite with 11 of my friends ❤️ Can’t wait to share more!
Not ready for alpine hiking season to end in CA— mainly cuz we had so many wonderful trips this year to the mountains. Looking back at our year, in California alone, we’ve made so many trips out to the Sierras, Bishop, Tahoe, Yosemite, and even out to Lassen. BUT with the seasonal change, I’m totally excited to plan adventures into the desert for some canyons, soft sands, and arches during its off-season🌵 Where in the Southwest would you recommend? 😎
The rocks of Yosemite literally glowing. What a magical place!
In a mirror is where we find a reflection of our appearances, but in a heart is where is where we find a reflection of our soul. • • • • 📍Mirror Lake
Wawona Tunnel, Yosemite
Olmsted Point is one of my favorite pull outs. The granite is rugged and grippy. The trees have an ancient, sculptural quality to them. Tenaya Canyon is beautiful and frightening all at once. And of course the view is amazing. I first visited this spot in 2017, and my legs were so wrecked from hiking the Mist Trail the day before, I couldn’t even leave the parking lot. I swore to myself, next time I came, I would be fit enough to hike out on the granite. This past weekend, not only did I hike the parking lot side granite, I had enough strength and stamina (after also hiking Inspiration Point and rock hopping at the base of Bridalveil Falls earlier that morning), to tackle the slope across the road without breaking a sweat. 💪💪💪 Slowly but surely working toward being able to hike Clouds Rest as an overnight backpacking trip. . . . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitenps #olmstedpoint #cloudsrest #halfdome #tenayacanyon #tenayalake #highsierra #granitehopping #thesebootsweremadeforwalking #hikingaddict #hikingadventures
First hike in 3+ months & of course it's: 1) in Yosemite (#onbrand ) 2) for the very special @samready2party 's birthday 3) with this amazing #girlgang . What this photo doesn't show: the 8+ bottles of wine we consumed between the 6 of us, and the endless laughter, positivity, and gratitude ✨ #yanetoptsoutside
Upper Yosemite Falls Trail- Yosemite National Park. -switchbacks get pretty tough on the way up but the view makes it so worth it. this shot was taken about half way up the trail, you get so many different views of Yosemite and the valley from this trail.. so worth it! #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitevalley #yosemitenps #findyourpark #halfdome #picoftheday #instagood #california #californiatrails #upperyosemitefalls #explore #outdoors #californiagems
When taking in this view of El Capitan from the top of Half Dome, I couldn't help but think of The Dawn Wall. It's a documentary about Tommy Caldwell's climbing exploits which I highly recommend - it taught me about El Capitan's role as the pinnacle of climbing. I've also heard great things about Free Solo, another documentary about El Capitan, which focuses on Alex Honnold's quest to climb 3,000 foot El Capitan with ZERO ropes or safety gear. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wanderlust #optoutside #natgeo #natgeotravel #bestcoast #gameoftones #master_shots #artofvisuals #waycoolshots #naturelovers #landscapelovers #purplepassport #nps #nps100 #nationalparkgeek #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitevalley #hikinglovers #teampixel #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #yosemitepark #yosemitenps #yosemitenp #sierranevadas #pixel2 #mountainsarecalling #halfdome #elcapitan

Half Dome from Glacier Point, Yosemite. 8,842ft. So big that remembering accurately is a real struggle. A truly amazing place and definitely a trip highlight ❤️ • • • #glacierpoint #yosemite #halfdome #yosemitenationalpark #nps #natiomalpark #yosemitevalley #yosemitevalley #cali #california #californiaadventure #roadtrip #roadtripusa #america2018 #yosemitepark #yosemitenps #bluesky #view #photography
As a photographer constantly looking for unique light, dramatic clouds, and amazing viewpoints it can be easy to dismiss the seemingly simple beauty in arriving at such an amazing place in the middle of a bluebird day. ________________________________ Yosemite's Tenaya Lake with the surrounding granite is stunning in any light. For this shot I used a 10stop ND with a circular polarizer both from #breakthroughphotography #nikond500 #tokina1116 #vanguardtripod F11 - ISO50 - 30sec - 16mm #emformdesign

Working on this one I got associations of the work of Max Ernst. Therefore I added the planet, or moon, into it. I like to have several references/associations in my works. With a few drawings I'm currently working on it looks like this can be a series.
Discussing the pros and cons of Yosemite in the Winter vs Summer. I loved winter time as the valley turns into a magical wonderland! Some of my favourite travel moments are wandering around the snowy valley floor watching and photographing the change in light and weather. We said we will definitely go back and take Avery ❄️🏔
