View from Alhambra, Granada, Spain

For me, this recent trip was a window to the past which gave me a better picture of our present and future.  I've learned how far we've gone, such as technology, and yet so much, such as traditions, have remained the same.

Like so many places, it's impossible to capture the beauty and grandness of this place in photo or video.  It just has to be experienced.   Which is why we travel, right?

This month's wallpaper is of a "small" giant clam I spotted on Talicud Island near Davao City, Philippines.   

My parents co-own a beach property on this island and when they first purchased this property, the coral reefs were dying off due bad fishing practices.  Ever since they've owned it, they've declared this a protected marine sanctuary and life in these reefs is coming back.  These are some images captured from recent trip there.  I could spend hours diving there and see something new every time.

Hard to believe it's been a year since I've posted my last wallpaper.  Where has the year gone?  Was very busy with a new home and wedding planning and to be honest since I do this on my free time, I felt burnt out from photography.  I work a day job as a software engineer and sit in front of a computer at least 8 hours everyday.  With all the stress last year, I just couldn't spend more time in front of a computer and I really missed my free time.

 

I told myself now that things have slowed down I should restart my wallpaper project.

 

A recent trip to Yosemite this past weekend just opened up that opportunity for me.  We were in the parking lot of BridalVeil falls and there was this very timid coyote just hanging out there.  Usually coyotes are very reclusive.  If you spot one, by the time you grab your camera, it would be long gone.   Not this one.   This one stuck around long enough to let me take a number of photos.  Posted more below.

Wallpapers on hold http://gallery.boundlesscaptures.com/blog/2014/4/wallpapers-on-hold Hey folks.  I'm placing my monthly calendar posts on hold at the moment.  Just too many things happening this year.  Doesn't mean I won't be taking pictures or posting, but I just haven't been able to keep up with it lately.  When I do get a chance to get out and post something wallpaper-worthy, I'll do it.  Thanks for understanding. ~Victor

I apologize for missing January and half of February.  The start of the year has been hectic moving into a new house, traveling to visit family, and running a half marathon.  Here's a rose for all of you to make up for it.  Happy Valentine's Day!

Where is the 2014 January Wallpaper? http://gallery.boundlesscaptures.com/blog/2014/1/where-is-the-2014-january-wallpaper Sorry folks, I did not get the chance to photograph January's wallpaper.  I've posted late wallpapers but never missed one in 4 years I've done this challenge.  Not the best way to start 2014, but it's for a good reason, I promise!  In addition to being with family for the holidays, my stuff has been packed away for a while now since we just moved into a new place!   I'll try to get something out to make up for January.  Otherwise Hopefully February I'll be back into the groove of things.

2013 December Wallpaper http://gallery.boundlesscaptures.com/blog/2013/12/2013-december-wallpaper  

Shenandoah National Park

Our last wallpaper for the year.  Spent Thanksgiving in the East Coast just outside of Washington DC this year.  Drove South to Charlottesville and did the tour of Monticello during the day and learned that Shenandoah National Park was a short drive away and close enough to catch the sunset.  There was a big patch of cloud off the frame to the left of the photo covering up most of the sunset and didn't get the colors I had hoped to see but still a great visit nonetheless.

2013 October Wallpaper http://gallery.boundlesscaptures.com/blog/2013/10/2013-october-wallpaper  

Saddlebag Lake Trail

Winter came early for me this year.  Went on an "easy" backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevadas just outside the Eastern entrance of Yosemite National Park along the Tioga Pass.  "Easy" being on quotations because this was supposed to be a 5-mile hike in along a big lake with small elevation gain towards the end to get to some smaller lakes and an easy 5-mile hike out looping around the other side of the lake.  

The weather forecast for our hike in the Yosemite area was "showers" and lows in the mid 30F.  Not so bad at 8600', right?  But we also got an update from the ranger that the spot we're going was going to be in the low teens (F) and windy.  Against our better judgement, it couldn't be that bad if they were just having showers a thousand feet below.  Forecast could be wrong, right?

Winds were pretty strong as we hiked in and we were forced to find shelter earlier than planned since the temperature was dropping and it was starting to snow already.  Boy, were we in for a long night!  We stayed in our tents for over 14 hrs, luckily the weather had calmed down sometime between midnight and 2am.  We woke up to this gorgeous view the following morning.  It had snowed between 6" to a foot in some areas.  

Location:  Saddlebag Lake, Lee Vining, CA.

Machine-gun wave

This wave was amazing!  Most waves, when you see them break, you hear one big splash, some fizzing noises and it's done.  Unlike all the other waves we observed that day, it started breaking and in a split second, heard this machine-gun-like sound from my right and continued to my left down the shoreline.  My head did one of those head-turning gestures like when an exotic car or a jet flies right by you with the sound to match.  Very cool experience!

I Made a Friend In Hawaii

Bumped into this cute little guy while snorkeling Hapuna Beach, on the big island of Hawaii, famous for its beautiful white sand and sea turtles!  This was captured in shallow water where the waves were breaking on nearby rocks, causing the sand to cloud up the water a bit.

Coit Tower Moonset

Had a friend visit one weekend in February and he wanted to shoot around San Francisco.  When driving around we found that the new lights on the Bay Bridge had already been turned on.   So we tried to find a good spot along one of the piers lining the Embarcadero.  We were so busy looking towards the bay bridge we nearly missed the moon setting righty by Coit Tower.  I had to rush to the other side of the pier to get a clear shot of the moon before it disappeared behind the hill.  The skies were clear all weekend and the fog was just barely rolling in giving a bit of a haze around the moon as it was setting.  Just like the lesson I learned (and keep relearning) from last month's wallpaper, don't forget to turn around when you're shooting!  You might just catch something totally unexpected.

Lake Tahoe Sunrise

When I walked over to the lake the sky was perfectly clear --Great for most people but not if you want to do landscape photography.  Clouds usually make for more dramatic landscape images.  I was worried about not getting any of that for sunrise so I concentrated on the ice along the shoreline.

 As soon as the sun rose over the ridge I found my clouds!  They weren't above the mountains, they were forming above the water!

We traveled to Paris for to celebrate the New Year this year.  I have family who lives just within a 5 minute walk from here  -- so every morning every time we stepped out the door we were greeted by a view of the tower. 

This was captured towards the end of the blue hour with the sun rising just behind the tower and the pink light finally hit the clouds far across the horizon.  It was also a bit windy which made for dynamic skies.  We were there for a week and it rained almost everyday we were there.  This was the one morning which had "mostly sunny" as the forecast.  Forced myself to woke up extra early while it was still dark to catch the sunrise.   Worth it.

The wallpaper has been up for a few days but here's the official blogpost about it!  I was hoping to find an outdoor holiday scene for this month but it's been (hella) raining in the Bay Area this past week so I found myself stuck indoors.   Fortunately, I have very awesome and creative roommates and one of them made these cute little snowmen to keep our Christmas tree company.   They have perfectly round bottoms - to keep them from rolling away I found my old lego rubber tires to keep them in place!
