New on 500px : Contemplating Assiniboine by callumsnape by callumsnape

Its the refreshing pine smell lining the forest, the damp lichen clinging to the branches, the buzz of mosquitoes, the dry heat of the continental divide. All of this attracts me to this pinnacle moment after a 27km hike to the top of Nub Peak.
The aches, the blisters, the strap sores, they don’t matter. What matters is that I’m here in this moment, seeing this with my own eyes. Watching the last sun hit Mount Assiniboine shading the valley and signing off the day… it couldn’t be any more perfect.

New on 500px : Into the Wave by baddoguy by baddoguy

Standing up on the cliff seeing this labyrinth, I felt vertigo and feared to fall below.

The Wave situates in Coyote Buttes North, Paria Canyon – Vermillion Cliffs Wildness. I took this pic on May 21, 2011 around 2 pm.

Yesterday before I came here, I had been one of the luckiest travellers who won the lottery for the permit to enter this wonderful place. There was 77 applicants who applied for the permits and I was one of ten people who got those.

New on 500px : search & rescue at yosemite | usa, california by acseven by acseven

Last 28th may a hiker slipped on a wet slab of rock at the base of the Upper Yosemite Falls stream, being flushed about 30 meters (100 feet) down the rapids, but still able to hang to a large boulder and resting on top of it waiting for rescue.

I was hiking the Yosemite Falls trail when the heli search and rescue team approached the falls. While I shot the scene (fallen hiker wasn’t visible from my viewpoint) the heli pulled back and hiking ground rescue teams hurried past me to the location. Luckily, he ended up being rescued, alive.

And I got a heli in front of a huge waterfall!!
