Another (unfortunate) image showing the impact of California's wet winter. This mattress must have washed downstream from the Yosemite Valley employee tent cabins that were flooded earlier in the year. I'm sorry to say I could not remove by myself, but will try again with buddies next time. #yosemitenps #winterfloods #yosemitephotography #yosemitenationalpark #riversnorkeling #yosemitefacelift #yosemiteriversnorkeling #leaveonlyripples #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitepark #mercedriveryosemite #mercedriver #mercedrivercanyon #rivertrash #nationalparks #floods #mattress #mattresstrashworldwide #underwaterphotography #yosemitevalley #yosemiteconservancy #yosemitenps #wearerivers
Reflections in a seasonal pool, Yosemite Valley. Sunrise in Yosemite isn't marked by the spectacular golden blanket the Eastern Sierras briefly wear, but is a gradual affair that often begins with the lifting of the mantle of frost from the valley floor. Watching the mist swirl through the pines from above, one is often tempted to sink in, to seek out the mist hugging the valley floor before it's gone.

Today we have to give the Merced River some love on #WorldWaterDay . What efforts do you practice to conserve and protect the fresh water in your communities? Our beloved 145-mile long Merced River flows through Yosemite Valley and is home to around 37 fish species, 127 bird species and 140 insect invertebrate species. Water is life! 📷: Kirk Keeler, Ansel Adams Gallery Staff Photographer

I took Bane and Atë for a walk at the river last week to enjoy the sunshine. Bane thought finding some shade and relaxing was a better idea. 😎😆😆 ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️#doberman #dobermann #springhike #europeandoberman #rivercanyon #mercedriver #sierranevada #dobermanpinscher #hikingwithdogs #niceday #blackandtan #watchdog #homesecurity #calidog #mountainlife #countryliving #rivers
Not a bad spot to chill 😎Found this sandbar in the middle of the Merced River in #yosemite . I’ve yet to experience anything quite like this national park’s jaw dropping beauty. All 58 of the national parks are an incredible part of our American identity and arguably one of the best ideas this country has ever had. Thank you to all the people who do everything in their power to support and protect these national treasures 🇺🇸 🙏 . . . . #yosemitevalley #mercedriver #sierras #halfdome #elcapitain

First time I somewhat replicated one of my paintings for another commission! Smaller (24x18), and with very slight and specific differences. And let me tell you, painting something a second time is actually very hard. Possibly the hardest painting I’ve ever created haha. . . Though I really do like the end result, and I definitely learnt a lot in the process of recreating! And shout out to @ermindartist_ for letting me commission this! . . “El cap sunset 2” - acrylic on canvas . . . . #climbingart #yosemiteart #yosemite #artistsoninstagram #abstractlandscape #createeveryday #creativehappylife #commissionsopen #mountainart #riverart #creativeprocess #californiaartist #exploremore #mountainpainting #mountainartist #thevalley #elcapitan #natureart #naturepainting #mercedriver #yosemitepainting
Does this scene evoke the feeling of magic or mayhem? Like many things in life its all a matter of perspective. Walking back after shooting the Firefall, myself along with hundreds of other photographers came upon this scene of the almost full moon rising over Half Dome and the Yosemite Valley. There was a collective gasp as we all took in the beauty then total mayhem ensued. Bodies started jumping over mounds of snow, flinging cameras and tripods, all in a quest to get a coveted spot along the river to capture the peace and tranquility of the scene. It was one of the the most breathtaking sights I’ve ever experienced even though I literally had photographers and someone else’s very friendly golden retriever totally surrounding me. After my adrenaline rushed frenzy to get a spot, I failed to capture that perfect moon. My camera did manage to capture some of the magic though with a moonburst and (hopefully) none of the mayhem. If you look closely though you may find a paw print:-) 🐾 #moonburst #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitenps #halfdome #yosemitehalfdome #halfdomeyosemite #california #californiaadventure #travelcalifornia #yosemite_national_park #yosemitevalley #travelyosemite #yosemitetravel #yosemiteriver #mercedriver #mercedriveryosemite #fog #moon #moonrise #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #mayhem #magic #lifeisbetterwithadog
Vamos por la mitad de la semana. Ya estamos viendo las actividades del fin de semana... Avistamiento de aves en el Parque Metropolitano o caminata en el Parque Nacional Camino de Cruces.

This is the #mercedriver below #briceburg . The road on the left is part of the old #yosemitevalleyrailroad that operated from 1906 to 1945. This was the main transportation to #yosemite #yosemitenp in the 1920's before the all year #hwy140 along the same river is opened to automobiles and eventually ran the railroad out of business. #sierranevada #motherlode #california
Digging into my archives today inspired by @adamburtonphotography. I took this photo on my first morning in Yosemite in 2015. I had been up for hours, forgetting how long the light would take to get over the mountains, but the area was so quiet and peaceful I didn’t mind | #JRTurnerPhotography __________ Canon 5D Mark iii | Canon 16-35mm f4 L __________ #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #california #californiaadventure #travelphotography #travelpicture #canon #canon5dmarkiii #lseries #reflections #sunrise #unitedstates #exploring #dowhatyoulove #global_hotshotz #ig_countryside #landscapephotography #landscapes #landscape_lovers #neverstopexploring #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #usnationalparks #mercedriver @yosemitenps @yosemite_national_park @yosemitenation @yosemiteconservancy
February showers bring March flowers...in California! The hunt for the famous poppies this weekend was a success 🧡🧡🧡#superbloom2019 #poppyfields #wildflowers #mercedriver #CAadventures #godsartwork
Sometimes, hearing the right quote at just the right time can offer us inspiration, motivation, hope, or validation. I don’t have a personal travel philosophy as such, but I am very adventurous in my heart, and I simply cannot live without my solo travels. It’s where I fuel my ambitions, where I clear my head, and where I am confronted with myself and my fears. On my travels I don’t mind to get lost, to seek the failures, to genuinely put on the mindset that there are no wrong turnings. In my experience, losing my way has resulted in some of my most memorable moments around the world. Not to mention some of my best photographs. But the most important thing, is to go! Book that flight, book that camper van, buy those hiking boots! I am a big fan of the Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho, and he once said: “One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” 😍🌲📸🇺🇸🙏🏻 #yosemitevalley #mercedriver #halfdome #ynp #sierra #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #elcapitan #halfdome #yosemiteinwinter #landscape_capture #landscapelover #landscapephotography #travelphotography #naturelover #riverview #roamtheplanet #adventurevisuals #ig_california #wildernessculture #bevisuallyinspired #folkvibe #solotravelstories #mirrorlake #yosemitehike #usaprimeshot #california #trekkingtoes
#bobcat This #coolcat came strolling by me without a care in the world. Look at his #camoflauge in the 3rd pic... now try to find him in the 4th. #yosemite #mercedriver #clarksbridge #hike #thegreatoutdoors #getout #explore #adventure
Tempo Run at the Merced River this evening. I used to have to run this road for mandatory physical training. That was around 7 years ago when I worked on Midpines Engine 12 for the Forest Service. This time around it was on my terms and I couldnt have picked a better day. Spring is here and the river canyon is just too good to pass up this time of year. #mercedriver #briceburg #blm #tempo #temporunning #temporun
Quick run to the motherland to do two things I have never done there... 1: Walk the valley loop trail from Camp 4 around the floor loop (first and last for everything.) 2: Cross country ski on Glacier Point Road. Let’s just say I’m too tired to edit 💤 . . . #yosemitevalley #yosemite #ynp #California #nationalpark #valleyview #elcapitain #traillife #ontheroad #allgoodneverbetter #neverstopexploring #takeahike #crosscountyski #badgerpass #glacierpointroad #mercedriver #camp4
First winter experience in the valley provided a lot of closed roads and snowed-over trails, but still feeling lucky to be able to explore these beautiful places so frequently 🍀🇮🇪 happy st patty’s day! #mirrorlake #yosemite #mercedriver #tenayacanyon #yosemitevalley #mariposa #canon #symmetry #yosemiteconservancy #nationalparkgeek #california #sierranevada #optoutside #52weeksofnature

The Merced River ran right behind our lodge. What a beautiful sight to end our stay! • • • • • #mercedriver #river #nature #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #travel #adventure #peace #beautiful #sunset #roadtrip #california #actor
Oh to be away from the crowds of photographers at sunset in Yosemite Valley! Tucked away around one of the many bends in the Merced River is this spot where a brook stumbles upon moss covered rocks to feed the already engorged river, with lighting provided by the golden reflection of last light on El Capitan.
