So thankful for 21 turns around the sun! Sooo thank you to everyone whose been a part of my life from then till now. So many memories, so many names, faces, and creatures I can’t thank you all enough. Cheers to 2019 and the adult life. Yewwwwwww!
Hey, folks! Happy Friday!
I’ve noticed some new faces over here, and wanted to say HELLO! I’m Kayla, a wedding and portrait photographer!
The lovely @sarahjagerdesign nominated me, so I’m going to write a little bit about myself below! (By the way, if you aren’t already following Sarah, do yourself a favor and follow her. NOW. Her work/creations are innovative, beautiful, fun, and fresh).
1. The photograph above is from my husband and I’s elopement in Yosemite. It’s one of our favorite places to climb, hike, explore + dream, so it only made sense to elope there! We had loved-ones join us for our ceremony, and the whole day felt like a dream. Photo credits to the talented + amazing @michellelyerly.
2. I'm working towards going zero waste, meaning I won't create ANY trash! I'm passionate about the environment, so I'm trying my hardest to live out what I value, and live with intention, and I think the zero-waste lifestyle helps me do that! If we harm the environment, we're ultimately harming ourselves in a roundabout way.
3. I ADORE wolves. After watching the documentary Living With Wolves by Jim + Jamie Dutcher (I’ve watched it at least three times, and cry every time), I fell in love, and understood them on a much deeper level. Wolves are vital to the health and balance of ecosystems (trophic cascades—look it up, folks!), and are intensely social creatures devoted to their families.
4. The 1975 are my jam. Ever since I listened to their song “Somebody Else,” I tore through the internet, and listened to all of their songs, watched all of their interviews, and went to several of their concerts! I appreciate their aesthetic, honesty, and rawness, and I’m floored by their talent.
5. I’ll eat any and all bagels. Especially everything bagels.
That is all! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! 🌞
Be Spontaneous. // A little over a week ago I had heard about #firefall in #yosemite! For those of you who are unfamiliar, just like I was. For a short time in February, the light from the sun sets on #horsetailfalls. It creates this awe moment which resembles lava or fire flowing down, known as “Fire fall.” It only happens once a year and is definitely worth the experience! Catch me in Yosemite next February! 🤗 #elcapitan
Ein Must-See auf eurer Südwesten-reise: Der Yosemite National Park! ⛰Umgeben von beeindruckenden Bergipfeln bietet das lang gezogene Tal hinter jeder Biegung ein tolles Fotomotiv.📷 Unsere Empfehlung für Naturliebhaber: Eine Wanderung zu den Vernal Falls! 🌲Euch erwartet ein traumhafter Anblick der tosenden Wassermengen. 😍#mycanusa#yosemitenps#visitcalifornia#visittheusa
Cada carretera de California te lleva a un lugar lleno de sorpresas, a parajes en los que detenerse y en los que soñar. Y muchas de esas carreteras sientes que ya las has visto en fotografías, películas, documentales o en tu imaginación.
I’m finally moved back into my house in Maryland after leaving my last house in Santa Cruz back in August! The last few months have been so crazy with traveling that it almost feels weird to be in one place for more than a few weeks. But, taking art classes again and preparing to apply for grad school feels like a good reason to settle down, at least for a few months;) THANK YOU to anyone that has helped me along the way. Whether that was keeping me company on the road, feeding me, giving me a bed to sleep on, or all of the above. I feel so grateful to have the support system I do all over the country!!
The very beautiful and rare "Firefall" in Yosemite National Park is back for a few days and we are now being blessed with so many amazing shots of the sunset giving a waterfall a stunning orange glow as if lava was flowing down the cliff ! 🏔🌅🇺🇸 Tell us which of these 5 shots you like the most and don't forget to tag people who should see them !

Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us🦋
Sometimes things don’t make sense and it can be hard not to feel defeated but there’s always a plan! You just have to trust the process🙏🏼 and be grateful for what you do have in this moment 💕

Afortunadamente, la caída de fuego de Yosemite 2019 no decepcionó. Durando no más de 10 minutos, cientos de visitantes de Horsetail Fall presenciaron la vista espectacular. Para aquellos de nosotros que no pudimos estar allí, muchas personas compartieron sus fotografías en Instagram.
El mes de febrero es una época mágica del año para estar en el Parque Nacional Yosemite. Por solo unos pocos días, un fenómeno natural llamado caída de fuego es visible en Horsetail Fall en el borde este de El Capitán. Durante este tiempo, la Madre Naturaleza nos juega un truco visual y hace que la famosa cascada parezca que está en llamas. Desde algunos ángulos, parece que la lava está escupiendo sobre el acantilado.
Fotoğrafta gördüğünüz El Capitan, ABD’nin Yosemite Ulusal Parkı’nda bulunan 900 metre yüksekliğinde, dünyanın tırmanması en zor kayalarından biri.⛰ Bu haftaya, sevgili @tunapatir’ın önerisi, geçtiğimiz günlerde En İyi Belgesel Oscar’ını kazanan, @alexhonnold’un El Capitan’a ip kullanmadan yaptığı tırmanışı anlatan Free Solo’dan ve @everchanginghorizon’un bu muhteşem karesinden aldığımız ilham ile başlıyoruz.💪🎬 Sporla ilgilenen, ilgilenmeyen herkesin, Alex Honnold’dan ve bu gerçek hikayeden öğreneceği çok şey var.✌(Yazının linkini de Bio’ya koyduk.)
⛰@freesolofilm, en iyi gerilim filmlerini aratmayacak gerginlikte, müthiş görüntülerle dolu bir belgesel, aynı zamanda izleyenlere oldukça ilham veren özel bir hikaye.
⛰Belgeselin başında El Cap’ı kendine en büyük amaç olarak belirleyen ve 8 senedir bu tırmanışa hazırlanan Alex Honnold’la tanışıyor ve sıradışı hayatına tanıklık ediyoruz.
⛰Free Solo, başarılı ve ünlü National Geographic fotoğrafçısı Jimmy Chin, eşi Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi ve ekipleri tarafından çekilmiş.
⛰Çekimde görev alan ekibin tamamı dağcı ve tırmanışın çekimini El Capitan’ın belli bölgelerine iple ve Alex Honnold’u rahatsız etmeyecek şekilde konumlanarak gerçekleştirmişler.
⛰Belgeselin sonunda ise Alex’in El Cap tırmanışını müthiş görüntüler eşliğinde, midenize kramplar girerek, yerinizde duramayarak izliyorsunuz.
⛰Free Solo, bir dağcılık belgeseli olmaktan öte, bir insanın odaklandığında ve kendini adadığında neler başarabileceğini gösteren, izleyen herkesin kendi hayatından bir şeyler bulacağı ilham verici bir hikaye.
Detaylar theMagger.com’da, link Bio’da!📲
📷: We thank @everchanginghorizon for this amazing photo.🙏
Honestly, I was gonna caption this one “do you ever just stand on a edge and look down and your brain is like ‘man yer dead fursureeee if you fall’ and then you like take a bit of a step back but the adrenaline is pumping and you feel ALIVE”... but then I remembered my mom follows me on Instagram and I was like ya maybe not what she wants to read this morning 🤦🏼♀️.
. (Hi mum. I’m sorry I like to live life on the edge! Love youuuuu!!!!).

A subtle Firefall photo from Yosemite a few days ago. Firefall is a once-a-year occurrence (weather permitting) when the setting sun illuminates Horsetail Falls (water levels permitting). Would you trust a camera accessory brand from California that wasn’t a little bit obsessed with Yosemite? Photo: @larrybirddog. #findyourpeak
5 years. February 27th, 2014 is a day i can't forget.
Here's my reminder to you all that you should make sure you tell your friends and family how much you love and appreciate them as often as you can because you don't know when they or you will be leaving this planet. 📸 @troublesomethomas
❄️ Have you checked out my latest YouTube Video? No! Well I don’t really care if you do. It would be nice if you did tho 🤓. A lot of creators seem to get unmotivated if they start to see no likes or don’t get following. If you truly love and have a passion for something you will continue to work on your craft and improve. Your work will speak for itself. To all my creators! Keep on creating 🙏🏻
At Sunday’s Oscar Awards Ceremony, "Free Solo," the story of professional rock climber @alexhonnold’s free solo climb of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, won the award for Best Documentary Feature. Honnold, 33, is the first person to ever free solo the iconic rock formation (which means climbing with no harness, no ropes, nothing!), accomplishing it in just under four hours. Lucky for us, we got to chat with him about his mildly life-threatening hobby of choice. Link in bio for the full feature. (Catch the doc this Sunday on the @natgeochannel!) 📸: @natgeo
* Truth, passion and heart in Free Solo * 🏆
I know which movie to watch with a future girlfriend! Thanks Alex! So… who wants a date with me? Maybe not exactly the same engagement and risks, but close.. ;)
‘Free Solo’ won an Oscar last weekend! It is so surreal to see a climbing documentary win an Oscar. Nobody would ever relate the climbing scene to a Hollywood environment. On the other hand, it isn’t a surprise the movie wins and Oscar like that. Free solo is so pure, so honest and human.
Congratulations to the whole crew, @jimmychin@alexhonnold@chaivasarhelyi
Tengo abandonado mi Instagram, pero no es por olvido, eso jamás 😂, y menos a uds, es porque sigo de vacaciones 🙈
Para todas las q me han preguntado , viajar con 30 semanas ha sido estupendouuu!!! Si puede, HÁGALO siempre! Da lo mismo a donde, mientras puedas y todo vaya bien con la guaguiii 💕. La primera vez que fui al doctor, me dijo , “estar embarazada, no es nunca dejar de hacer cosas, no estay enferma” . Asiqueeeeee como yo no soy de hacer deporte, para nada 😂, pero si de salir, viajar, hacer paseos, nunca pensé de no hacerlo por nervio. Y en el avionnn, naaaada! Tobillos hinchaoos pero lo Classic. Incluso camping , durmiendo en el suelito! Se puede y mucho !! Y eso !! Les respondo a todos sus mensajes por aquiiii. 😘
Todos los whatsap los respondo a la vuelta !!
We got to witness the polarizing effect that light creates on a granite wall during sunset all while being covered in snow.
Road closures and conditions kept many people away, but here we were holding the holy grail.
Spur of the moment road trip with my bud @evanpaterakis up to Yosemite to witness God’s beauty known as Firefall.
If Horsetail Fall is flowing in February and the weather conditions are just right, the setting sun illuminates the waterfall, making it glow orange and red. This natural phenomenon is often referred to as the "Firefall", a name that pays homage to the manmade Firefall that once took place in Yosemite.
My twin, just 8 years apart. I wouldn’t want to share birthday dinners with anyone else you pain in the ass. You might be my big brother, but I chose you as my best friend for life. We can get through anything together. This is our year. 🤟🏼 #iloveyoumore#familyfirst#happybirthdayjoshua

For a couple of weeks each February, a waterfall in California’s Yosemite National Park appears to be set ablaze by the setting sun, a very interesting evening spectacle known as the “firefall.” The sunset must catch the 1,000-foot-tall Horsetail Fall just right to illuminate the mist with reds and oranges.
De repente, um vale de origem glacial surge à frente, com altos abismos de granito formando paredões de até mil metros de altitude dos lados e cachoeiras deslumbrantes de trechos em trechos.
Na base do vale, águas cristalinas, muito verde (em especial de maio a agosto) e diversos exemplares da fauna e da flora silvestres.
Eu mesma pude ver livremente alces, veados, ursos, leões da montanha e diversas espécies de pássaros.
Mas o mais impressionante desse visual é que ele é o resultado geológico que começou a surgir há mais de 50 milhões de anos!!
Vocês também se impressionam quando estão em lugares assim?
Yosemite's rare and glowing Firefall captured by #alphacollective member @erubes1 "What an incredible experience! Firefall in Yosemite happens during a short week or so period in mid-February. You need a couple things working your way to get this shot: Horsetail falls have to be flowing with snowmelt and there have to be clear skies in the West for the last sun to hit the face of El Capitan. If you can time it right, you'll get to witness the falls come alive with a golden glow! So happy to finally cross this beautiful event off the bucket list."
Here's a tip to keep in mind if you ever get a chance to photograph #firefall yourself: "Make sure you have a zoom lens to capture this experience. Horsetail Falls is high up on the face of El Capitan so you'll really need that extra zoom to capture the details." | a7R III | 70-200mm f2.8 | #sonyalpha#bealpha#yosemite
Fire fall happens once a year in February in Yosemite National Park. @the_lost_coast captured this spectacular phenomenon beautifully at @igersusa#igers

No. Aunque lo parezca, lo que estás viendo no es lava. Se trata del efecto que crea la luz del sol en la cascada conocida como 'Cola de caballo', en el parque de Yosemite.⠀
Este fenómeno natural se produce cuando los últimos rayos de sol del día en el mes de febrero chocan con el agua de la cascada. Y ahí es cuando surgen los colores anaranjados y rojizos que simulan el efecto de la lava. Un espectáculo para los ojos.⠀

Ron Kauk in Yosemite in 1991 in a photo by Kevin Worrall. In 1975, he made the first free ascent of the east face of Washington Column with John Long and John Bachar, renaming the route Astroman (5.11c). Astroman held title as the hardest long free route in Yosemite Valley for over 10 years. Also notable was Separate Reality (5.12a), an intimidating roof crack which Kauk originally climbed in 1978 without camming devices. The same year he put up Midnight Lightning (V8), one of America's best known bouldering problems because of its difficulty and convenient location in the Camp 4 campground. #badass#yosemite#climbing#tradisrad

At Yosemite National Park, a visitor captures the natural phenomenon "firefall." It only happens for a short time in February when the sun hits the cliff at the right angle and makes it look like fire or lava is flowing down. "I’ve waited 4 years to get this shot," Felipe Silva wrote on Instagram. "I can’t describe how mind blowing it was to witness this."
Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park is experiencing "firefall” ! The phenomenon, which is only expected to last a few more days, happens in late February when the conditions line up perfectly — i.e., enough flowing water from snowfall, clear skies, and the sun setting at a specific angle — all of which illuminate the waterfall with a beautiful orange glow. Photographer @erubes1 describes his experience while capturing the event, "Yesterday was a day I’ll never forget. We played in the park all day and then watched in awe as Horsetail Fall became illuminated by the last of the day's sunlight. Firefall definitely lived up to its name." (📷: @erubes1 📍: #firefall, Yosemite National Park)
Day 15 on the third repeat of @tommycaldwell ‘s Dawn Wall. Winds at 45mph and incoming dust storm. Sometimes when things get pretty nasty out here, we have to remember that some fresh cold smoothies are only a stone’s throw away. Thinking we may both free solo the rest to save time. @logan_haydel ripping the shit of of the crux even though avy conditions are considerable. #kneebar#fullcrimp#volumesareon
