Floating Dot of Water
Looking up at the stars in Yosemite, it made me feel really small in this universe. Sort of awe-inspiring how desolate the rest of space is, even when filled with so much light.

I'm not really a photographer, so it's nowhere near as artistic, but I took this at the top of a guard tower at the Great Wall of China in the dead of winter. That's pretty desolate.

The Road to Eggnog

Driving through the boondocks of central Utah, on a dirt road that lead us towards the Henry Mountains, the last mountain range in the Lower 48 to be mapped. Eggnog was a settlement along this road at Bullfrog Creek...we saw no evidence of any sort of town there.

Overlooking the valley of Yosemite, it took 3 days of hiking from our starting point until we finally reached this view. Pretty far away from the rest of the groups that go hiking in the area.

Purple Contrast
Yosemite valley turning a natural purple with spare seconds before sunset. I was actually surprised when I looked at this image - the colours were much more subtle in person, but got very saturated in the photo. This began our second night, high above the floor where the rest of the 4th of July crowd was gathered.
