  •   timyea @jessica__penny I'm sure! But you definitely have a good eye for photos. Do you use any kind of effects? That's really cool either way 2mon
  •   jessica__penny @timyea thanks! I've been a photographer since high school and it was my minor in college. Just now trying to refine it as a craft. No special effects here... Just a long exposure on a tripod. The light on the tree came from one of those lights on a stake that you stick in the ground. Also you can see so many stars in the High Desert! 2mon

jessica__penny This is what used to be the bed of New Melones Lake in Sonora, CA. The drought has brought the water line down substantially, and consequently, the new shoreline is covered in dried clay with gooey quicksand underneath. This particular quicksand is very deceptive: it looks solid on the surface, but with one step, you'll sink down to your calves, lose a shoe very quickly, and someone will have to pull you out. #travel #california #earth #drought #desert #instagood #outdoors 4mon

jessica__penny Mono Lake is supplied by runoff from the Eastern Sierras, but is far from potable. The hot sun evaporates most of its moisture, leaving a densely alkaline body of water. The large pillars of bacteria standing on its shores present photographers with a naturally occurring schadenfreude, between their putrid stench and gorgeous silhouettes.

The native Miwok tribe subsisted in this harsh climate almost entirely on fly pupae that taste like bacon.

In late spring, the snow-capped Sierras appear to loom, a constant reminder that the warm reprieve of summer is fleeting, and the weather will turn on you as soon as you forget you have snow chains. #california #landscape #abandoned #mountains

jessica__penny Crocker Point as seen from Dewey Point, Yosemite National Park, California.
It's impossible to convey the sheer enormity and ascendency of Yosemite with a camera. For the first time in my 15 years, having taken over 100,000 photos, I felt as if every shot I took was grossly inadequate, in that it felt nothing like the humbling, spiritual experience that is Yosemite Valley. #travel #outdoors #nature #california #hiking #landscape #earth
