Lake Berryessa is the largest lake in Napa County, California. This reservoir in the Vaca Mountains is formed by the Monticello Dam, which provides water and hydroelectricity to the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area.
The reservoir was named for the first European settlers in the Berryessa Valley, José Jesús and Sexto "Sisto" Berrelleza (a Basque surname, Anglicized to "Berreyesa", then later respelled "Berryessa"), who were granted Rancho Las Putas in 1843.
Family reunion in the mountains for Tristram Harper (Tristram’s uncle) who tragically died exactly 50 years ago at #mountrolleston . For 6 hours our group aged from 15 years old to 77 years old strongly felt the spirit of uncle Tristram and this beautiful place #whanau#legacy#natureisamazing
Arriving in Dunedin after sunset, I had no idea what the my surroundings looked like, even with the full moon. In the morning I awoke to a car alarm, and decided it best to find flat ground for yoga practice. I headed to the track towards the beach. The path was not flat. I hoped the beach would prove otherwise, though I didnt want to have to walk down that far seeing how I was 180 meters above sea level. Then the I turned the corner and saw what the destination was. Not merely a beach, but a world of magic; shear sandstone cliffs, wave dug-out caves, and a glorious sunrise. I practiced yoga on an outcrop of eroding rock, listening to the ocean and the growl of some aggressive seagull that seemed to have claimed me as his own. .
Everything that has followed since has been just as magical; so much so that I have been brought to tears more than once. The universe is on my side and I could not be further from alone while I am in the arms of the source of creation itself. Though my faith in this persists in the darkness, and in the struggle, telling me this is everything I need, not only when my eyes are filled with the light of a million stars and the glitter of ocean stones long ago created and then destroyed yet still living on; filling the sea beds and shores with more delight than this mortal soul can bear.
Yassss @t.hagi1013 so magical #Tokyo

Summertime in South Africa is dragonflies... they zip around the swimming pool (or in this case, the watering hole at the underwater hide in Madikwe), skimming the water, hovering, diving in graceful arcs. It’s unusual to see them stationary.
If you ever had the burning desire to know 😝 “they have a uniquely complex mode of reproduction involving indirect insemination, delayed fertilization, and sperm competition. During mating, the male grasps the female at the back of the head, and the female curls her abdomen under her body to pick up sperm from the male's secondary genitalia at the front of his abdomen, forming the "heart" or "wheel" posture.” (Thanks Wikipedia)
This amorous pair was obviously in full baby-making mode and the orange background helped offset the iridescent blues, creating a feeling of energy outside of the obvious one you’re observing. The reflections are what drew my attention, so a vertical composition helped include them and a deeper depth of field of f11 was used 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
