Is this a case of "Stupid is as Stupid does" - or a sub-species of the Millennial generation known as "Millennialus Estupidas Maximus"

What's your thought? Is a photo op worth risking your life?  - I was on this trail the same day three people were swept over this waterfall to their deaths because they wanted a cool photos. One slip on wet granite, the current grabs your legs, spins you around, and with no handholds, three seconds later, you're dead.  IMHO, just not worth the risk.

Posting this here for a matter of discussion for CAWS members. What's your take on this? IMHO - no photo op should be worth risking your life if one momentary mishap were to happen.

Is this a case of "Stupid is as Stupid does" - or a sub-species of the Millennial generation known as "Millennialus Estupidas Maximus"

What's your thought? Is a photo op worth risking your life?  - I was on this trail the same day three people were swept over this waterfall to their deaths because they wanted a cool photos. One slip on wet granite, the current grabs your legs, spins you around, and with no handholds, three seconds later, you're dead.  IMHO, just not worth the risk.___Posting this here for a matter of discussion for CAWS members.

My moderator's choice image for last week is this beautiful image by +Brent Clark . I love the blue light of the sky with the warm moonlit rocks and the Milky Way behind the peaks. A very well done and evocative image. 

"By the Light of the Moon"
Pear Lake - Sequoia National Park (CA)

Normally when one thinks of Sequoia national park, they think of massive redwood trees. It has those, but a good 85% of the park is mountainous backcountry wilderness dotted with high alpine lakes. It's an amazing place to backpack, so I figured why not do my first backpacking trip ever here? It was 11.7 miles round trip with 3000 feet of elevation gain and considered "difficult." It was really funny - within 50 feet of starting my bear canister full of our food fell off my pack and punctured a hole in a can of coffee I brought, causing everything to be covered in sticky brown liquid. Great start to the trip! Luckily we were able to just go back to the car and clean it up. After that, it went well most of the way and the views were absolutely breathtaking. Toward the end I wasn't doing so hot and I was woozy and felt like passing out. We had just gotten to camp where I ate a meal and drank a lot of water, and then I felt better. We arrived a couple hours before sunset, so I decided to take a nap. When I woke up, the first thing I saw when I looked out of the tent was a gorgeous display of alpenglow - these peaks were glowing orange. I'd always seen photos of it but suspected that they were somewhat edited to look like they were glowing orange - but no, they really do glow orange and it's a sight to behold. Alyssa was still sleeping but I hassled her out of bed so she could see too. We agreed it was worth it :)

We watched the last sunlight from the west disappear from the mountains, and then the moon began to rise in the east. It was a waxing crescent moon so it was pretty bright (though not full moon bright). That is the light coming from the right side of the frame in this photo. I hadn't done any planning for a milky way shot for this trip, but as luck would have it the milky way rose right up and over the mountains in line with our view from the lake. I lucked out. We laid down together on the smooth rocks by the lake and watched the millions of stars twinkling in the clear night sky. My mind felt very calm, yet a lot was running through it - my aching muscles and joints, how in the last 36 hours I'd flown 1800 miles, driven 250, and hiked 6 steep miles just to see this one view, and how I was just a few days away from marrying the woman next to me that had done it all with me. It was one of the best and surreal moments of my life. Just so happened to score a decent picture out of it too :)

The next day, the hike back was downhill the whole way which was easy on the muscles but tough on the joints. Getting back to the car and eating pizza and beer felt pretty amazing. I can't wait to backpack again, and hopefully do a multi-night trip somewhere.

This is a blending of two photos in photoshop. One exposure was 244 seconds long to capture the mountains and lake, which luckily don't move very much. The other was 20 seconds to capture the stars and milky way - any longer of an exposure and you'd see star trails indicating the rotation of the earth in relation to the stars.

The wreck of the Point Reyes. In case you missed it from last week (just before my 'puter blew up) I wrote about how this beloved local landmark was almost destroyed recently, likely set ablaze by photographer spinning burning steel wool.

Horray! After a crazy week at home capped off my 4 days debugging computer HD problems, I can finally post a few images from my recent trip. 

For those who travel to Death Valley and the southern Eastern Sierra, the sounds of fighter jets flying overhead is not an uncommon thing. On this day I was buzzed by an F-18/F over the Eureka Dunes. In this photo you can actually see the pilot looking at me as I took her photo, probably just a moment after she had lit me and my truck up as a practice  target acquisition. Watching her pull a tight 360 around the dunes was also pretty darn cool.  (And yes, I did contact the base so she now has a copy of this photo, too.)

So here's a special salute to all our vets, and especially those who stand and serve on the front lines protecting us here at home, ... and even more especially to all the brave women who do the same thing standing (orfl... more »

There were so many great images shared here last week, it was by far one of the tougher weeks to choose a Moderator's Choice image, as a number of images really stood out. But this image... this one takes the cake in sharing a not-often seen perspective, enough to make me want to reach out and grab the nearest object for security. This has to be one of the most epic trail shots I've seen in a very long while. Congrats, +Wandering Sole Images - a great capture indeed.

So, how was your weekend? My last 4 days were spent dealing with Hard Drive issues and a misbehaving computer. I'm finally transferring the last folder of over 3 TB of image files to a brand new main imaging driving. Now I can get back to work. Yay!  :)

Some lovely images were shared here while I was away in Death Valley. My Moderator's Choice image for last week was this beautiful sunrise captured by +Harold Coleman - I love the light in the sky contrasted against the stark yet colorful landscape.

Painted Hills National Monument in central Oregon. The sunrise seems almost artificial in color but I assure you it was spectacular and real. I drove 5 1/2 hours that morning to catch the sunrise, hoping there would be a cloud in the sky. Let's say the artist that painted the hills turned his brush toward the sky.___Some lovely images were shared here while I was away in Death Valley.

Back home and first day back in the office after a week on the road for a visit to Death Valley and the Eastern Sierra. The 3,000+ RAW files I shot have now pushed me over the brink of needing another storage HD. - One of my favorite shots from the trip I'll post soon: A UFO over Lone Pine Peak in the Eastern Sierra.

My Moderator's Choice for last week is this excellent share of Last Light on Horsetail Fall by +Habib Rangoonwala  - and I selected it for one reason only: Given the insane number of shots that popped up over the last couple weeks, Habib managed to pull of a beautiful shot that was different from the thousands of others shot from the two 'standard' locations. Great job getting "out of the box."

Horsetail Falls, Yosemite National Park, California
When the conditions are right (like no cloud in west and some water flow), this fall turns red and orange in Mid February to late February each year.
There must be sufficient snow pack on top around this time to feed this waterfall. This natural phenomena is also known as Firefall.

Here's my 'unofficial' sunset shot following the end of my recent Point Reyes workshop. Why 'Unofficial'? - 'Cuz this was shot with my cellphone.  :)

I had a great time with a bunch of wonderful people teaching a one-day photography class on shooting intimate details at Point Reyes. Those who stayed after the class officially ended were treated to a beautiful sunset over Drakes Beach. This is a quick cellphone shot to show what the scene looked like. And my thanks again to all who showed up. smile emoticon___Here's my 'unofficial' sunset shot following the end of my recent Point Reyes workshop.

Such a wonderful location to photograph under moody evening light. Check out more of my photos from this wonderful area in my Image Archive Library: http://bit.ly/1QCjS9E

Evening light over seastack near Davenport, Santa Cruz County coast, California

There wasn't a lot of color in the sky when I took this picture, but waiting until the start of the blue hour to make longer exposures definitely helped to set the moody feeling of this image a little better. Let me know if you agree.

My Moderator's Choice image from last week was this beautiful share of Yellowstone National Park by +Robert Stocki. I love the mix of light, shadow, and color that radiate a sense of mystery about this place.

Evening light over seastack near Davenport, Santa Cruz County coast, California

There wasn't a lot of color in the sky when I took this picture, but waiting until the start of the blue hour to make longer exposures definitely helped to set the moody feeling of this image a little better. Let me know if you agree.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy this photo,

It seems I'm keeping to my record of not having chased the famed Horsetail Falls shot again this year, but here's another shot I got last year which feels a bit more special to me since it's a more unique captured moment.  See more of my Yosemite Photos in my premier gallery at: bit.ly/1Q60L25
