  • Taking in the views around Cave Rock State Park in Nevada.  This was on the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe.  This was during my brief outing to Lake Tahoe/Stateline, NV with my cousin and her coworkers Hnin & Khin... (Pics taken Thursday, April 6, 2017)
*Our trip in summary:
It was one of those times again... a trip to Tahoe!  I went with my cousin & her coworkers.  We rented a car since we didn't have a reliable car to drive thru the mountainous terrain.  We rented a 2016 Chevrolet car.  After a few hours' drive & enjoying the snowy scenery, we arrived to Stateline safely around 10:30 a.m.  We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.  After settling down, we met up with Khin & Hnin & headed to Cave Rock State Park.  It's a breathtaking location!  There's even a tunnel; The Cave Rock Tunnel is a dual bore highway tunnel on U.S. 50 on the eastern Lake Tahoe shore.  We then ate lunch at the My Thai Cuisine restaurant.  Later, we went to explore around Emerald Bay State Park, but the weather quickly deteriorated.  Snow & wind battered us once we got to the place, though we braved the elements and saw the waterfall there.  Afterwards, we decided to head back to our hotels to rest up... For dinner, we ate at the Naked Fish Sushi Restaurant in South Lake Tahoe.  It was pouring rain at the time, too!  To end the evening, we went back to our hotel & chilled (with some wings we got to munch on)…… By early next morning, me & my cuz saw snow falling outside.  We got excited & began filming/picturing the snowy scene.  Later, we checked out & grabbed our late breakfast at Taco Bell.  Luckily, the snow had lit up a bit.  We decided to stop in the snow last minute, particularly at the road leading to the Echo Lake Sno-Park.  Too bad the road to the park was not plowed.  We then continued down the mountain where the snow transitioned to rain.  We encountered heavy rain around Sacramento as a line of possible t-storms drifted thru.  I drove us all the way home safely despite the weather conditions.  What a fun but tiring trip this was!  Safe travels...

  • Every so often I have to share this one again. Pretty much a dream room, a passageway of universes, fashioned from locally milled lumber, built before the internet existed, at the beginning of the “back to the land” movement. The opposite wall is floor to ceiling shelves and even more books. These old homes aren’t without their share of issues and inconveniences, but that honesty is part of their beauty. 📚📚📚📷 @katalves on the property of @homestead_custom_sawmilling & @deslindseya

  • Tunnel View • Yosemite Valley, CA • Aug 2013

Yosemite Valley was one of my first experiences of witnessing the grandeur that the American West had to offer. I'd been in the US for only about a year when I took this picture so hadn't seem much else. I had no idea that this particular view of the Yosemite Valley - called the Tunnel View - happened to be the subject of one of the oldest landscape photographs by Ansel Adams. To be honest, I didn't know much about Ansel Adams.
.
I remember seeing a framed copy of Adams' 'The Tetons & The Snake River' on a neighbor's wall when I was in middle school. I had no idea then what any of those words meant but there was something about the picture that left an indelible impression. Of course, I knew nothing of photography/photographers at the time to realize what an artist he was. Born in 1902, he started young at the age of 17 when he joined Sierra Club - one of world's oldest environmental organization - and had his photos published soon after. Later in life, he was contracted by the US government to capture the beauty of the national parks. He was also instrumental in the creation of Kings Canyon National Park.
.
Stylistically, his work can be said to have 'sharp focus and high contrast resulting in rich blacks & bright whites'. He was a technically adept modernist who wanted to move away from Pictorialism which made use of soft focus & diffused light and instead relied on form and texture.
.
1st image is my take and the 2nd one is Adams' version of Tunnel View.
.
He would have been 118 yesterday.

  • El día terminaba, los últimos rayos de sol se ocultaban, Moncho y sus hijos preparaban la cena mientras que al grupo de huéspedes nos unía un lugar junto al fuego tratando de calentarnos con un café al tiempo que compartíamos planes, anécdotas y consejos con la familia local, los niños curiosos ante la multiculturalidad reunida, los perros ladrando ante cualquier ruido o movimiento extraño entre los árboles de pinos, la niebla fría y un poco espesa; pero lo más importante era las risas compartidas que hacían no sentir frío. Gracias Moncho e hijos 💪🤝 @hostaldondemoncho está ubicado en la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta a la altura de casi 3.000msnm y con una temperatura promedio entre 10° - 15°.
Rodeado de vistas increíbles hacia la ciudad de Santa Marta, el balneario turístico El Rodadero, los picos nevados Colón y Bolívar al igual que el municipio de Ciénaga.

  • It's time to remind ourselves about Leave No Trace principles.⁠
The interest in hiking culture rapidly increases, much more people get outside to enjoy Mother Nature. Which is great and is not at the same time as there are more irresponsible people as well.⁠
Not packing their trash, ignoring the hiking etiquette considering everyday hygiene, and the list goes on. Fresh mountain spring water gets polluted with leftovers, people wash their dishes there and even drain the dragons there, which is dangerous not only for animals and the environment as a whole but other people (especially if those ignore safety rules and drink water without using filters).⁠
Let's respect each other and our planet! Follow Leave No Trace rules, don't be that guys~ ⁠

  • 🔸Pico Bonpland. . . 
El 3er pico más alto de Venezuela. Cuenta con  4890 metros de altitud según datos de Silva, G. en su publicación 'Los 70 picos más altos de Venezuela'. Forma parte de los 14 picos de la #SierraNevada. . . 📌Dato curioso: El glaciar #LaCorona, se extendía desde el pico Humboldt al Bonpland abarcando el picacho Sucre, evidenciado así por la geomorfología del lugar. 📌Gracias a estudios realizados a través de imágenes de satélite, se cree que para la década de los '70 dicho glaciar ocupaba alrededor de 60Ha, hoy sólo ocupa 3,5 Ha aproximadamente. .
