Yosemite National Park, California

Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Truth Continue to Rise

Truth Continue to Rise

With this image I did my 9-image thing, with 1 stop increments. Take a good look at the vegetation; you don’t see any blurring or ghosting. It was windy this day, snow falling, dropping from trees. I used the Deghosting tool in Photomatix Pro 6, you can see for yourself how well it works. I’m not indorsed by Photmatix, but if you bracket photos for a realistic image like this; you should ty it. I did little editing in Lightroom Classic CC.
You know what’s coming next; yep I talk about why I chose this title. I keep telling the truth about what really happens here Yosemite National Park. So, take another seat guys this is going to be a long one. I will be repeating it in another post, not to be redundant; the American public needs to know the truth and how lives are truly being destroyed. This truth is derived from 10 years of collective evidence; daily journals, videos, photos and audio. You see; the US Army taught me how to collect and record evidence. I did live recons; collecting information and evidence. They trained me intensely to retrieve sensitive information. I was told I was one of the best, had dinner with division commanders, received a butt load of medals for collecting legitimate sensitive information. I’m not trying to brag about my accomplishments, but I do want you to understand what I’m telling you is true. Yet, those in Yosemite’s Superintendent’s Office and my managers don’t want to see, or hear about the truth. These cowards know who they are…. I’m not trying to be mean or vindictive; I’m telling you the truth. I have known many brave men, women and even children; these people are far from it. The ones that don’t participate in mobbing; hide behind their positions. Again; just the truth….
In two weeks, I will have worked here in Yosemite for ten years. In that ten years I’ve had my tires flattened, by breaking the valve stems, my bike tires flattened, its brakes and spokes tampered with, had milk throw all over my Jeep, on a hot summer day, red soda on another day, dog poop packed in it’s door handle, my room illegally entered way to many times to count, my laundry tampered with weekly, my bathroom covered in feces. Daily; my neighbors coughing loudly as they pass my door; day, night, early morning. Even though this is done intentionally to harass me, wake me, its labeled coughing and someone coughing is not harassment; it’s a normal body function. That’s what they say. If that’s the case; I could be farting in their faces every day, but I don’t, even after being labeled a Dick Snitcher. Wow, that didn’t sound right, but you know what; it’s the truth. My neighbors stomp at my door, in front of my room day and night, dropping pots and pans at my door, knocking on my door and walls; waking me, keeping me awake, sleep deprived. Using children and pets to harass me; like two pack, the chronic cougher, child and pet user. Being blocked, crowded and baited every time I step out of my room. Blocking four-foot hallways with furniture, carts, plant pots, shoes, anything to annoy their target (Me), as we have trees falling on our building, from heavy snow. My neighbors rushing out to fill the air with cigarette smoke as I leave or come home from work, blocking me in, in parking lot, using vehicle exhaust to harass. These same employees doing this year after year, day after day. This is just in housing units and I’m not even close to covering housing.
At work, every day; I Have coworkers and managers blocking me at every doorway, corridor and hallway. Carts and equipment left I the same areas for the same. I get elbowed, intentionally bumped into (baited). The equipment I use is hidden or tampered with, recycling and compost are a lie, the electrical and natural resource waste is off the charts (who pays for this, oh we do, the tax payer); its February, was 16 degrees when I left for work this morning and our air conditioning has been running all winter. No shit folks, my coworkers and mangers are using space heaters to keep warm. AGAIN; Senior Management Offices are upstairs in this building. Sorry about the bad word, sense I’m telling the truth here; really, I’m not, I’m pissed. I don’t know where this is coming from, please forgive me. OK, back to Toxic Yosemite. There are a lot of petty things my coworkers do daily to push my buttons. Most are meant for me to snitch; that way I’m not just Rick the Dick, but now I’m a snitch and everybody hates a snitch. You see folks; setting up a Target is not that difficult, especially with the mobbing and hate epidemic that plagues our nation. I want you to get the full picture here, so I’m jump around a bit. I have employees rushing to nonsmoking areas to light up their cigarettes, because I’m walking up front or outside. I’m not talking just maybe one or two, but many, daily, even this morning. One, was a coworker; he waits until I come out front, goes to a table under two no smoking signs, lights up and smokes his cigarette. I went out and told him he needs to leave, he ignores me and finishes his cigarette, then comes inside and laughs. There were mangers there, they’ll stand back, watch and do nothing; as guest and children are exposed to employee smoke. Again, this is done, so I’m the prick and if I say anything to management, I’m a snitch. I could go on and on and a lot of it may seem petty; but these things are done daily to harass, annoy, agitate and get their Target (Me Again Yay!) to act out of character, to be terminated. And don’t get me started on the over-the-top Street Theater and Gaslighting.
Peeps, this happens in the workplace daily across America; government and private. This could be for something as simple as addressing a shortcoming or safety issue. It has also spread into our neighborhoods and many organizations. There are tons of credible literature on this. It can be called Workplace Mobbing, Community Stalking and Gang Stalking. Workplace Mobbing was recorded decades ago in our Postal Service. That’s were the term “Going Postal” came from. Employees were being mobbed, harassed so baldly by their coworkers and supervisors; they went “Postal” and killed their coworkers. This was done because they were not meeting requirements; so management would coheres their coworkers to mob and harass them. These employees had nowhere to turn to; their lives and livelihoods were being destroyed taken from them, by unethical people. There still is no help in the US. Now before someone takes this out of context; I do not condone violence, but will continue to use the truth to enlighten you. There are many answers I don’t have, but for the ones I do; the Truth Will Continue to Rise.
And If you think management and the Super are not informed; I make sure they are and with my photostream approaching two million views, I’m sure most here know when I change my sox.

Snow Pillows

An otherwise stormy visit to the Yosemite Valley cleared up just long enough to capture a couple of shots of clearing clouds over Half Dome before being engulfed again. Fresh snow and ample water in the seasonal ponds provided my beloved “snow pillows” in the foreground.

Cathedral Rocks Meadow in the Snow

After relentless storms in the Sierra Nevada intermittently cut off vehicular access, my husband and I decided to risk a one-night trip to the Yosemite Valley, expecting grueling conditions. We were met with long awaited winter wonderland conditions with ample snow, gushing waterfalls and seasonal ponds not usually full until the spring snowmelt. Swirling fog at the tops of the granite peaks of Cathedral Rocks provided a lovely, wintery atmosphere.

Should Have Recycled

Now that I said that; my neighbors and coworkers, will make sure I see them putting theirs in the trash, a dumpster or on the ground. Really, that’s the way it goes here. Senior management allows them to do so, their offices are on the 2nd floor of my building. Its called baiting; the perps here in Yosemite National Park have it perfected….

(1 in a multiple picture album)
I avoid the crowded valley in Yosemite National Park and spend my trips up in the high country, especially in Tuolumne Meadows. Each time I go there I walk along the river with the same name. I never fail to find great scenes to capture. Here Lembert Dome is reflected where the river pools before making a turn.

Firefall Again?

Firefall Again?

It is the time of year again for the annual firefall event in Yosemite park.
We should have enough snow to make a big water-flow this year, and hopefully to get a good light too.
This was one image taken from reverse tunnel view two years ago, in addition to the image I posted before (flic.kr/p/23dgDj2).
Where are you planning to shoot this year?
