Raining outside so doing small gouache sketches in the studio. This is a spot on the edge of Ediza Lake in the beautiful eastern Sierra. #practiceart #gouache #gouachepainting #edizalake #granitegroup #highsierra #anseladamswilderness #artistsoninstagram #artoftheday
ANSEL ADAMS I saw an exhibit today at the Massachusetts Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) on the legacy of Adams work which defined an entire genre of photography. At 12, he was given a Kodak box-brownie camera and a trip to Yosemite with the Sierra Club. He was a life-long advocate for the environment, and was hired by the U.S. Department of the Interior to make photographs of U.S. National Parks; his photographs helped expand the National Park system, and raise national awareness of the beauty and value of our park system which were in danger of being mined and developed. . . • Adams on top of his station wagon, atop Pontiac Mountain in Yosemite, 1942 • Winter storm in Yosemite, 1937 • Anchors at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, 1931 • Laurel Hill Cemetery, San Francisco, 1936 • Manzanar, the American concentration camp where Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II, 1943. • Buddhist Japanese Americans going to pray, 1943 • Japanese American detainees working in the fields at Manzanar, 1943 . . . @mfaboston @yosemitenps @anseladams @yellowstonenps #anseladams #anseladamswilderness @usparksandmonuments #usdepartmentofinterior @fishermanswharf @laurelhillcemetery #manzanar #japaneseamerican #japaneseamericanhistory #japaneseamericaninternment #photography #photographer #wideviewcamera #conservation @sierraclub #sierranevada #sierraclub
Truth (quoted from a @playboy article 1983)
Standing majestically above the confluence of the North and South Forks of the San Joaquin River is Balloon Dome (6879') in Ansel Adams Wilderness on the Sierra National Forest. Named in 1864 by Prof. William Brewer, Survey Field Leader for the California State Geological Survey, also known as the Whitney Survey after it's director Josiah Whitney. Brewer named it such as he said the dome looked like "the top of a gigantic balloon struggling to get up through the rock". Geologically speaking he was not far off from more complex theories on granitic bulb formations and the influence of glaciation and pressure relief exfoliation. Theodore Solomons was the first to photograph Balloon Dome on September 1, 1892, during his first exploration of the Sierra Nevada using a 8 x 10 camera loaned to him by pioneer Yosemite photographer C.E. Watkins. Solomon's later documented his impression by saying it was "by far the most impressive and imposing object of the kind I had ever seen". #tst #theodoresolomonstrail #theodoresolomons #balloondome #sierradomes #granite #anseladamswilderness #sierranationalforest #usfs #nationalforest #leavenotrace #sierra #sierranevadamountains #sierranevada #dome #thelostsierra #altjmt #altpct #westside

Dusk, Ansel Adams Wilderness, CA. I know it’s cliche to describe the Sierra as Muir dubbed it the “ Range of Light,” but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t live up to the moniker;-) #anseladamswilderness #california #sierranevada #sierra #visitcalifornia #rangeoflight #places_wow #wildernesscture #discoverearth #ourwild #wearethewild #travelstoke #campoften #simplyadventure #global_hotshotz #theglobewanderer #sonyimages #sonyalpha #a7rii #gopark #findyourpark #unlimitedcalifornia #BBCTravel #goatworthy #wildcalifornia
The rarely seen back side of Half Dome. Memories from the JMT this past summer.
Link to the full video is in my bio! Here's a short clip from the full video. This summer I had the pleasure of backpacking deep in the magnificent Sierra Nevada over five long weekends. This resulting short series of time lapses merely hints at their awesome beauty when seen in person.

When it comes to hiking these are our wheels. Do you prefer boots or trail runners? #hiking #backpacking #appalachiantrail #continentaldividetrail #pacificcresttrail #outdoors #anseladamswilderness #asoloboots
Love being inspired by Ansel’s simple yet beautiful compositions ... 👀👌🏽💯 #photography #anseladams #anseladamsgallery #anseladamswilderness #naturephotography #beauty #bnw #blackandwhite #insta #instahub #all #nature #art
my bad ass hairdresser stopped by this morning with my favorite chardonnay and handed me a soaking wet package that was on my front porch. I opened it and found this gorgeous Ansel Adams Yosemite book. I mentioned how beautiful it was and Cory remembered (or asked Bay 😂) and ordered me a copy for my birthday ❤️ Now I’m off to buy a new houseplant. And probably open that bottle of chard before noon. Proof I’m officially old AF! Thank you for all the sweet birthday messages + photos + texts + emails + calls. You sure do know how to make a girl feel the love. I’m not even mad about waking up at 5am or the rain anymore.
Hey! It’s been awhile, but we’re back on the road in Yosemite this weekend. Hunkering down for a storm today, place should be painted white in a few hours. Should be magical...

I could not wait to dip my feet in this lake! Even though I wore my favorite and most trusty boots, the long miles and weight on my back gave me some bad blisters on both feet. When I came across a lake or river I’d soak them in the cold water until they were numb. Luckily with a little trail tlc, the blisters didn’t last too long. Not pictured is the 20 minute nap I took after the soak 😴 #jmt2018 • • • • • #johnmuirtrail #anseladamswilderness #yosemitenationalpark #backpacking #backpackinggear #girlswhohike #johnmuirtrail2018 #kingscanyonnationalpark #johnmuir #adventuretime #backpackergirl #optoutside #rei1440project #wander #sierranevada #sierranevadamountains #girlswhobackpack #runbytheheart #sequoianationalpark #hikingintherain #guidedbackpacking #adventurer #lovewhatyoudo #dowhatyoulove #wildcalifornia #bewild #roam #girlswhotravel #travelguide
It’s an Ansel Adams type of morning
If there is anyone I would take photography advice from, it would be Ansel Adams. I had posters of his stunning black and white landscapes up in my college dorm so many years ago. Now, I have a lovely Ansel Adams coffee table book. He somehow had a way to bring emotion into an image with no human life in it. He could bring life into a still image with no color. As you go into the weekend, taking photos of memories, remember the emotions with each click. Think of what angles will capture those feelings the best. And most of all, be content, knowing you captured the moment in your heart, even if you didn’t get the “perfect” shot. 💕🍰 -Maria . . . . . #artsycupcake #artsycupcake1 #artsycupcakecrew #Women2Follow #womencreators #nosmallcreator #youtubecreators #lifestyleyoutuber #anseladams #anseladamsquote #influencer #influencers #influence #photography #photographyquotes #photographyquote #photograper #makeaphotograph #makeithappen #artistsoninstagram #poetryartistsunite #anseladamswilderness #anseladamsinspired #funfriday #inspirationalquotes #inspirationquotes
This #throwbackthursday is @natejordon chillin on the side of a bluff hundreds of feet up, adjusting his camera settings no doubt!
My first backpacking trip out west was in the Sierra Nevadas. Every year, I struggle between going back and going somewhere new. This could be the year I make my triumphant return!

In 2019 it’s high time that we all challenge our own biased perspectives and finally see our world for what / how it actually is — my favorite aspect of hiking in mountain ranges is the ever changing perspective that they offer on the world and our smallness in it — dropping down to Red’s Meadow from Purple Lake on the JMT, Ansel Adams Wilderness, CA . . . . . #johnmuirtrail #anseladamswilderness #sierraphile #highsierra #sierranevada #forestlovers #californiatrees #mountainsarecalling #mountainscape #choosemountains #hikingculture #backpacking #hikertrash #thetrek #trailchat #getonthetrail #takelessdomore #backpackinglight #hikingphotography #outdoorphotographer #whyihearttheparks #radparks #nationalparksusa #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #parkroamers #protectourpubliclands #usinterior #milesfromordinary #reiproject1440

On this last day of 2018, I’ll share one last mood of one of my favorite views from the year. I’ve shared a dramatic pink and purple sunset from this vantage as well as warm alpenglow at sunrise. This late afternoon light has a timelessness that surprised me when I put this image together. 3-frame vert-o-rama. #thesageandthepinesphotography #jmt #anseladamswilderness #minarets #iceberglake #mammothstories #intothewild #backpacking #hiking #afternoondelight #easternsierra #sierranevada #marmot
