Craggin’ Classic

 Craggin Classic 2014 New River Gorge, WV

Tara and I spent last weekend enjoying the perfect autumn weather camping and climbing at the New River Gorge, and hanging out at the Craggin’ Classic. While my hands were busy during the day clinging to rocks, I managed to snap a few shots in the morning and evening.

High Country

High Country - One of my favorite photos, captured near May Lake in Yosemite, CA

The High Country

This photo was captured while camping in the High Country of Yosemite, near May Lake. My topophilia extends beyond the curved boundaries of Yosemite National Park. I see and feel the Milky Way, and my interdependence to the rest of the universe. I see and feel the nature of our planet changing around me. I see and feel my friends. As the observers, we are the creators of our own place; they do not exist independent of us.

I just submitted this to NatGeo for their September assignment, Sense of Place.
