Another pic from Yosemite! Imagine walking out your front door in the morning with a view like this!!! This is why I miss this place..hoping to get back here soon!! I imagine Yosemite Falls is really flowing now..that’s snow at the bottom section of the Upper falls in late March. Happy Easter 🐣/ long weekend everyone! * * #yosemitefalls #tourist #river #waterfall #halfdome #misttrail #yosemitenps #loweryosemitefalls #cooksmeadow #rockclimbing #yosemitevalley #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite National Park

Trying to channel Ansel Adams again😃 Managed to get Upper, Middle and Lower Yosemite Falls in one long exposure photo. This version is a little distorted from my original so that it could fit Instagram dimensions. My original shows a bit more of the lower falls. I wish I took out my 14mm so I could get the entire falls in one photo, but my camera and tripod were hanging so precariously over the edge that I thought I was going to drop it off the cliff and into the falls😨 Changing lenses and filters wasn’t an option at this point!! * * #yosemitefalls #tourist #anseladams #waterfall #halfdome #loweryosemitefalls #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #yosemitenps #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #blackandwhite #monochrome #blackandwhitephotography #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite Falls

Found time to do a little more baking this weekend! It’s definitely been awhile since my last time posting one of these..baking timelapses! Cannelés (or Caneles). So yummy when hot out of the oven. Crunchy caramelized outer crust and a soft vanilla custardy interior! Turned out OK for the first time trying this recipe! Yes..there’s a bit of butter in the recipe 😉 * * * #canneles #caneles #caramel #caramelized #crunchy #custard #sugar #vanilla #Vancouver #VancouverBC #vancity #vancitybuzz #chocolate #dessert #sweets #buzzfeedfood #foodie #baking #yvrfood #vancouverfood #French #patisserie #pastry #pastries #bakedgoods #timelapse #timelapses #timelapsevideo #foodtimelapse #timelapsefood at Vancouver, British Columbia

My happy place a few weeks back..despite the hazy skies! 1000 ft above the valley floor. It’s a lot harder hiking up here with a 30 lb backpack on but worth the hard work!

A little weekend baking...Gateau Basque! Realized it’s been a while since I baked anything..so a little experimenting with a new recipe! Gateau Basque..pretty much a vanilla custard/pastry cream enclosed with a flaky buttery crust on the bottom and top. This thing weighed a ton! I can feel my waistline expanding just looking at it! * * * #gateau #cake #gateaubasque #flaky #crust #puffpastry #Vancouver #VancouverBC #vancity #vancitybuzz #bc #chocolate #dessert #sweets #buzzfeedfood #foodie #baking #yvr #yvrfood #vancouverfood #French #patisserie #pastry #pastries #bakedgoods #yeast #bread #custard #vanilla #flaky at Vancouver, British Columbia

Rainbows 🌈 and waterfalls! Doesn’t get much better than this! Bridalveil Falls...was hoping to take a long exposure but there was just too much spray coming from the waterfall! * * #valleyview #rainbow #elcap #elcapitan #waterfall #halfdome #bridalveilfalls #oasis #monolith #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #hike #mercedriver #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #yosemitenps #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite National Park

Here’s another photo of Half Dome this time reflecting off the Merced River! Not the greatest light but it was my last morning in Yosemite so was trying to fit in as much as I could before leaving😞 Hoping to be back soon!! * * #tunnelview #mercedriver #river #elcapitan #waterfall #halfdome #bridalveilfalls #oasis #monolith #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #tourist #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite National Park

Welcome to the GIANT FOREST!!! Was pretty much in awe walking among these giant sequoias. Could have used a pair of snowshoes though! Can you spot the ants..I mean people in the photo 😉 * * #generalsherman #generalshermantree #tourist #largesttreeintheworld #sequoianationalpark #sequoia #tree #forest #giantforest #oasis #snow #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #yosemitenps #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Sequoia National Park, California

Meet General Sherman! The largest tree by volume on the planet!!! 275 ft tall...103 ft circumference!!! Never felt so small standing near this giant! Taken in Sequoia National Park last week! Wasn’t expecting so much snow to be on the ground still! * * #generalsherman #generalshermantree #tourist #largesttreeintheworld #sequoianationalpark #sequoia #tree #forest #giantforest #oasis #snow #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #yosemitenps #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Sequoia National Park, California

Another spectacular day in Yosemite last week. This is Valley View..similar to tunnel view but no Half Dome. Could have sat here all day staring at El Cap and Bridalveil Falls along the Merced River! * * #valleyview #tourist #elcap #elcapitan #waterfall #halfdome #bridalveilfalls #oasis #monolith #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #hike #mercedriver #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #yosemitenps #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite National Park

Determined to climb this bad boy one day..sorry “hike up” this one day 😂Not the most spectacular picture of Half Dome but it was the only day it wasn’t clouded over or the light was poor! 4800 ft from the valley floor to the top. Can you spot the people on the valley floor? * * #tunnelview #tourist #elcap #elcapitan #waterfall #halfdome #bridalveilfalls #oasis #monolith #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #tourist #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite National Park

Yosemite Falls...all 2425 feet of it. Whoever’s been to Yosemite knows how hard it is to get a picture of the falls from the Lower Falls Trail without a person in the photo. Lucky to have this place all to myself for a whole 5 minutes!! That’s an eternity from this spot! Too bad I had to crop my photo due to Instagram limitations 😠 * * #yosemitefalls #tourist #river #waterfall #halfdome #misttrail #loweryosemitefalls #nevadafalls #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #tourist #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #10stopfilter #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite National Park

Here’s a long exposure of Vernal Falls along the Mist Trail. Unfortunately couldn’t get much closer as the trail directly to the top of the falls was closed and the alternate route was way too icy..didn’t want to die on my first morning in Yosemite! * * #vernalfalls #tourist #river #waterfall #halfdome #misttrail #johnmuirtrail #nevadafalls #rockclimbing #goldenhour #clouds #sunshine #tourist #hike #landscape #california #sanfrancisco #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #nps #nationalpark #travelphotographer #natgeotravel #sunset #longexposure #10stopfilter #Vancouver #vancity #dailyhivevan at Yosemite
