Yosemite Valley in the Fall

My first time to Yosemite was in the Fall. Without having been there in the other seasons, I'm still going to say that this was the best time to visit. The crowds had thinned out, the animals didn't seem to be in a hurry to hide from the heat, and the aspen trees were bright yellow.

Here are some photos of Yosemite, one of the most amazing National Parks I have ever visited! These amazing natural sanctuaries are truly a place of peace where you can find yourself being one with nature. Simply beautiful!

The Streets of Barcelona

Wow, it's been a very long time since I added a new post. Sorry about that! It's been busy over here.

Anyway, here are some fun shots of Barcelona for today's post. I was first in Barcelona about 7 years ago. I didn't know much about the city and was totally blown away by its art, architecture and abundant culture. So, when I knew I was going to be going back to the city a few weeks ago, I could not contain my excitement.

Hope you like these photos. For more fun photos, visit my Etsy store or go to my website.

Paris in the Rain

I recently got back from a 2 week trip to Europe. I was lucky to find amazingly warm weather everywhere I went, except for Paris. Despite the wet conditions, I told myself I would not let the rain ruin my days there so, instead of avoiding it, I tried to find the beauty in the rain. I also did my best to try to capture the uniqueness that the rain brings (always trying to keep my camera dry, which was the main challenge to fully photographing the beauty of the rain!!).

Here are some shots of a rainy Paris. Hope you like them!
