Long’s is one hell of a rewarding hike. The final stretch is equal parts thrilling and terrifying. For some extra mileage/vert, go up Meeker and traverse over to Longs. That way you get a few extra good scares in for the day! On a
You do realize that every professional photographer that has ever lived edited their photos, right? A camera isn’t some magical thing that captures a perfect image of reality — it’s a mechanism that relies on light being focused through several pieces of glass and
Absolutely. Put your camera on a tripod and pick a lens that is wide enough to capture a LOT of stars and some foreground. Many people will tell you to pick a place with no light pollution on a night with no moon, however
Hm…late June should be fine this year, because I don’t think Glacier did much better in the snow department than we did in the Cascades. My wife and I pretty much only do day hikes, so somebody else will have to tell you about
The State Water Project and the Canals heading to Southern California have changed the way water in the North is being doled out to consumers. The Delta (where I live) is the next target for pulling water and the State wants to put further
It’s funny that you’re joking about isolation. Alot of my family used to live right on the edge of the grid and some just a little beyond. It was in the tri-state area…Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. They had electricity but were on their own
two ways. The first is to do a long exposure. A long exposure like this would probably be between 15 seconds to several minutes long in order to capture each individual lightning strike. to put that into perspective the average cellphone/point-and-shoot camera usually exposes
The vastness was more or less what I suspected. The travel time was not. I was aware that you can only drive 65 in the US, But I was not aware that often the speed limit is way lower and some americans manage to

The Spanish word sierra means “range of mountains,” and is usually found in combination with other words, such as Sierra Blanca (White Range), Sierra Madre (Mother Range, or Central Range), and Nevada (Snowy Range). Occasionally las sierras is used to designate a group of
It’s an excellent photograph, really stunning colours and the scenery is spectacular. I do feel that this could benefit from a tighter crop. Looking at the image, its main focus is the mountain range and the valley – the top left of the image
Unless you go to a very specific area, you won’t see any prostitution at all and unless you physically walk in a coffeshop, you wont see any weed either. Older kids might pick up on some stuff but otherwise you wouldnt see any difference
At a speed of 0.5 mph it would take 30 minutes to crawl .25 miles. Imagine being 15 minutes into it and honestly, a bit winded from the effort. The ceiling lowers from the brutal 4′ down to 1.5′ with a foot of violent
Well, obviously the song is kind of taking the piss of the accent, but my grandparents sound exactly like that and they’re from Bonavista. People from the Avalon probably won’t because there’s a lot of Irish accent there. A lot of the tropes are

It’s difficult for landscape photographers to refrain from taking the saturation to 11 on everything they photograph. This is because they are excited about the photo they took, and adjusting the saturation is extremely easy. Furthermore, all photographs require post-processing (even if you want
I said it was rendered naturally, not unprocssed.

You cannot swim inside the park, BUT you can swim in river Korana which is formed directly from Plitvice Lakes. Most of tourists do not know this. If anyone is interested in pictures of river Korana, I’ll edit this post when I get on
The focal length itself won’t really help the stars to be more visible – but it will help you get a larger field of view and therefore can get a bigger piece of the sky in the frame while still showing some earth. Really
I was a tree planting checker working just up the road from here a bunch of years ago. As I drove up the road leading to one block the treeplanters had posted a sign saying “Cursed ye all who pass here” in black spraypaint
If you want to see something like that you might be better of going to Wadi Arabah. Similarly spectacular, slightly more dune-y than Wadi Rum. All the bedouins and other locals prefer to go to Arabah as it is less visited by tourists and
Waterfalls flow best later in the day, however due to drought they are a bit wimpy this year. Hike to the top of Nevada Falls, Glacier Point is wonderful, but can be crowded. If driving, parking is limited but there is a great trail
