Let’s just say I snapped more pictures than I took bites of food. I can’t believe I was able to take this picture from my picnic table! I was also tour guide for 4 kids under 10, 3 of which was their first time to Yosemite. Hopefully I sparked an interest for them to want to go back. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #yosemite #rainbow #ynp #yosemite_national_park #nationalparkgeek #waterfallsfordays #nationalparkphotography #findyourpark #abc30insider #discoverearth #nakedplanet #bestdestinations #wanderlust #shareyosemite #yosemitefalls #yosemitevalley #visitcalifornia #usinterior #ig_photooftheday #allaboutadventures #calove #oneturnoffthemainroad #wildcalifornia #earthpix #wilderness_culture #canon #adventurenthusiasts #wanderlust #amongthewild #waterfall #natgeotravel

Those two wishes came true making it possible to capture this scene. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #birdonawire #birdsonawire #abc30insider #ipulledoverforthis #morningcommute #oneturnoffthemainroad #viewsfromcalifornia #wildcalifornia #visitcalifornia #wilderness_culture #naturephotography #instagood #moodygrams #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #wachthisinstagood #briskoutdoors #naturalcalifornia #california #sunrise #playfresno #ig_photooftheday #ig_captures #ig_sunrise #centralvalleyca #discoverfresno #clouds #iphonephotography #snapseed #california #californiaholics #visitcalifornia

We were told when we checked in to the campground that they had a really good hike along the creek that flowed by the campground. With the small window of time, I decided to do the short hike and take my camera along of course. I couldn’t believe all of the beautiful scenery along the way. I knew this was my chance to try to attempt a long exposure shot which I had never done before. Unfortunately I did not have a tripod which is a key part of shooting a long exposure. My bag and a steady hand had to suffice to see what I could come up with. Hopefully you enjoy my first long exposure shot and I hope to learn more about the process and try it again soon. If you are ever in the Big Sur area and have a chance to go to Limekiln State Park, take the hike and take a camera. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #limekilnstatepark #castatepark #longexposure #waterfall #bigsur #bigsurcoast #californiacaptures #idhikethat #abc30insider #hike #ipulledoverforthis #visitcalifornia #oneturnoffthemainroad #earthofficial #sand #viewsfromcalifornia #wildcalifornia #wilderness_culture #ig_photooftheday #ig_captures #ig_ocean #adventurenthusiasts #amongthewild #waterfallsfordays #naturalcalifornia #highway1 #allaboutadventures #adventurefreaks #californiaholics #theoriginalroadtrip
