Tonight kicks off a week long fundraiser in downtown Visalia, benefiting three businesses destroyed in a fire December 26th. Dozens of people are without a job, and the community is rallying together to raise money to help Mama K’s, Cafe 225 and Acapulco Jewlers get back on their feet. How you can get involved tonight on Action News Live at 6 & 11. #abc30insider
It’s hard to beat the beauty and solitude of yosemite during winter
Well first off, let me say this - being sick is no fun! With that said thank you to all of you who have stuck with me even though I haven’t posted since the end of 2018. Sooo, I figured I’d “aim high” for my first post of 2019.😉. If you’ve seen my recent Stories you no doubt know that I went to see the launch of ULA’s Delta IV Heavy Rocket for the NROL-71 Mission yesterday at VAFB. Well, being that it was my first time attempting to shoot a launch from this location and from the SLC6-Pad at VAFB I was slightly off from my initial “aim point” with my camera to capture what I thought would be the initial view of the Rocket just as it crested the small hill in front of me, plus the livestream of the countdown on my phone was delayed by about a minute or so (thanks to everyone there on their phones attempting to do the same thing🙄😂). Anyhow, by the time I saw the rocket crest the hill I couldn’t move my camera fast enough to get it in frame, sooo instead I QUICKLY took my camera off the tripod and handheld it fully zoomed in at 250mm with my 55-250mm lens and snapped these 3 shots in succession - so SWIPE LEFT! I must say even though these were shot handheld I’m REALLY pleased I came away with these 3 images, and I’m really pleased with how they turned out short of having a bigger zoom lens on my camera!! These are cropped in quite a bit in LR as well. By the way, it’s my understanding that at the time I took these 3 shots the rocket was traveling at Mach 1!! Awesome experience all the way around!! These shots were also taken at f/8, 1/640 sec., and ISO: 100🚀😁 .

Big Macs, fat folks, ecstasy capsules, Presidential scandals, everybody move!
I'm lost in the world.
I'm down on my line.
The water towers are definitely my favorite thing to shoot in my hometown

I went from graduating high school to being an adult and learning being grown is not as fun as I thought it would be 😂
You can tell by just looking at this photo of Half Dome how cold it is up there 👆🏻 ❄️
Snapped this photo from yosemite valley using 70-200 F4 lens
I love this place 😍 My husband and I escape here every chance we get, even if it’s just for a few hours. I’m really hoping to take more photos up here in 2019 - whether it’s families, couples, engagements, maternity, senior portraits, you name it. If the mountains are calling ya, let me know 😉
Flying Squirrel ready for takeoff
I know this is what you been waiting for. To see tree roots inside a sewer line😂 if you’re having sewer problems give us a call 📞☎️
Woke up and felt the vibe...
Smiling because no matter how wet I get while covering the storms that are pushing in ⛈ , I know I won’t go hungry 😂. Be safe out there, y’all. And stay home if you don’t “have” to be anywhere. We’ve got you covered with our coverage ☔️ See ya on the 📺 @abc30_actionnews #abc30insider
It's days like today when the Sierras stand in their majestic glory and the sun is shining just enough to allow the snow to glisten on the mountain tops and I feel as if my dad is near by. I can hear him saying it now, "Thirty years ago we could see those mountains nearly everyday." It's days like today that my dad would have called me up and told me to go outside and have a look at the mountains. I find myself telling my kids to look at them too. I love how certain things can be ingrained in our memory and we pass them on to the next generation. I hope one day my kids think of me when they look at the Sierras and say, "Mom, did you see the mountains today? They are absolutely gorgeous!"
