A Squirrel from Yosemite

by Kristi Hines

This little guy (or gal) popped out of the bottom of a tree near my campsite in Yosemite. Didn’t seem to mind me getting down to take the photo.

It’s not often that someone comes back from a famous photography destination with so few of the expected photos. Yet that’s what I did on our trip to Yosemite National Park earlier this month. After processing my favorite photos, they consist of small mammals, a hint of urbex, and abstracts.

One of my favorite wildlife shots is this one. While I was photographing a little squirrel, I noticed movement out of the corner of my eye. He had just popped out of his home for a few moments, but I managed to capture him. What a cute little guy!

Out of Focus on the Beach

by Kristi Hines

You know how sometimes, you take a photo planning to do one thing, but then it comes out completely different? This is one of those shots. It was pre-HDR and pre-Nikon, and all I wanted to do was get a closeup of the little thing on the sand. But what I captured was the beautiful sky in the background instead…

Shades of Purple

by Kristi Hines

One of the things I love to shoot is flowers, specifically closeups of flowers. I wish I could say that it was crazy processing skills that made the flower come out this way, but this photo actually needed little editing. I really liked the hazy feel of it.
