Everyone is posting all these spectacular snow-filled images of Yosemite, after staking out their coveted spots amongst literally hundreds of other photographers, all lined up to capture the Firefall. (This is when the sun lights up Horsetail Falls and creates an illusion that makes the water look like glowing lava). I’ve tagged a couple of friends’ feeds so you can go see their marvelous shots of this natural phenomenon, which happens only for maybe a week in February, and only if conditions are just right. Please go check them out! (@neohumanity even posted a time lapse that is beyond stunning.) I know many haven’t posted, yet, but I look forward to seeing them all. Kudos!
Meanwhile, this is decidedly NOT that shot because I’m way too lazy and also need a horse tranquilizer to even contemplate wading into that kind of paparazzi-like horde, brilliant as they all may be. I swear I’d either be in jail for whacking someone with my tripod, or quite possibly in traction due to the insanity of getting to and from the location without a Sherpa and an oxygen tank. So I’d rather snuggle up with my dogs, while fondling the remote control, and post a photo I took over on the California coast. Cheers to those triumphant souls who braved the lunacy to capture the Firefall in all its breathtaking glory! You’re all aces in my book! 🏆

When I arrived at the beach I wasn’t feeling all too inspired. I didn’t see anything interesting to shoot except for a flat sunset. As the sun dipped below the horizon I found my composition. I quickly positioned my tripod and captured this just as the light was transitioning.
From the beaches to the mountains...so much to love about California.
I'm going to the snow again for the first time in five years and I'm so excited! I'm not a skier or snowboarder, but plan on being outside and active. What are your favorite things to do in the snow? Any tips for keeping warm? Is it okay to après ski without skiing? Fill me in!
