Glacier Point provides a unique vantage point to peer down 3000 feet to the floor of Yosemite Valley. Views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Vernal/Nevada Falls and several other notable landmarks are easily seen, not to mention the numerous ant sized cars and buildings that are scattered across the valley. One of the most iconic formations at Glacier Point itself is Overhanging Rock. Whenever I think of Overhanging Ro
Yosemite National Park is a sight to see in the Spring. The scenery is of course stunning with full waterfalls, iconic formations and a good deal of wildlife. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Yosemite in the Spring primarily due to the crowds.

What has most energized me creatively over the years is the charge I feel when I see and create something that so many others look past with indifference. I’m a firm believer
Few moments are as special as when a stormy sky lets a select few rays of sun through to highlight a master work of nature. Such was the case on a cold winter morning earlier this year in Yosemite when Three Brothers was briefly, yet ever so beautifully, illuminated between snowfalls. Amazing how nature’s beauty timelessly builds upon itself. While such a thought makes me sad that I only get to see a nanosecond
Sunset at Horsetail Fall in the early part of the year is an amazing moment to witness. The seasonal waterfall on the shoulder of El Capitan is positioned perfectly to reflect the last rays of sun in its mist, providing an intense gold and even reddish hue likened to a firefall. I’ve sped up the playback in the following video, taken earlier this month, to highlight the movement of the water, mist and clouds as
