This might look more like a forest fire, but what you’re looking at is a blazing winter sunset over El Capitan as a fog trail drifts through Yosemite Valley. A scene like this happens for a few minutes perhaps once every couple years, and I will never thank myself enough for ditching all the classes and meetings I had that week to watch this amazing storm blow through. I refuse to title any of my shots ‘fire and ice’ but I welcome any other suggestions 😉 Hope you enjoy it!

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!!
