Since for a few days I thought devART was degrading with overloaded advertisements and such, but just now I realized that.... my subscription is over. :giggle:


You can't see it because my symbol doesn't change, but it seems my account isn not 'till hell freezes over (some with ` symbol do have) haha. I think this feature is only for former Gallery Director members or Administrators.

I'm just saying it's really funny to be without subscription.


Other than that I've been really busy :( Too many things has been happening in my life... I'm trying to catch up with things but also emotionally wise.
I do feel a little better, thanks to the set of exercises which I did to help to bring a light into my soul and do positive thinking. 21 day rule really help to change your unwanted way of thinking into better way thinking. It really helps when you want to recover from illness.


Lately I'm a huge fan of alpine hiking and this year I did a lot of mountain hiking... and guys, what do you think about it? :D

Photobucket


Unfortuuunately... when I was climbing on chains I've suddenly discovered that I have awful alpine heights fear. I NEVER had any height fears, bah, I always liked to be on heights. But when I started climbing on high mountains so suddenly by seeing how scary landscape from heights is and just a few steps wrong can kill me... I started panicking. I was shaking like crazy, having breathing issues and typical fear symptoms... once I climbed on top, the rest of "walking" I was quadruple crawling like a coyote on ice and hugging to nearest rocks. But I'm stubborn and I don't let this my unexpected fear to ruin my experience... but I don't think I could sleep a full night on this bed picture above :roll:


Besides, how are you guys? Nostalgic christmas time is coming, eh? Exciting?

Omg, I would freak out. Never been afraid of heights, but I'd be afraid I would move around to much while sleeping and fall off. :iconscaredplz: But on the other hand, it kind of looks like fun. :XD:

They have chained belt. There you have a belt worn on yourself and rope/chain clinging, in case if you fall. So no worries!

That bed- is- completely crazy. :D I love how the guy is looking over the edge, and the lady took the better spot- next the mountain, not hanging out where you kind of tilt and feel like you are going to fall off.

Haha! We were joking that must be a huge battle to get a spot next to the wall :D
Although I wouldn't worry about it because my travel partner is absolutely free from fear of heights. :B

Sleeping on the side of a mountain? Assuming I could get over the fear of falling to my death (it's not the fall, it's the sudden stop at the end) I think I would totally try that out. Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Oooh, Christmas.
Good: First Snow this Year. I like Snow. I think i like Snow as much, as Charlie Sheen likes his "Snow".
Bad: Christmas theme eeeeeverywhere. Christmas is nice and all, but not when it's force-fed a whole Month long till the Year ends...

21 Day Rule: Actually worked with "start positive thinking!" for me! Life is much better when you not only see all the bad sides of something. :)
But it failed at beating my laziness. My inner weak is strong and takes back control if i let go just for a second... :|

I like how you mentioned that better times are coming :B

Basically, that knowledge is the oldest with our existence. Animals do have that before us, humans. That wisdom was coped by our west civilization's growth. I'm glad the more people open eyes now and try to bring it out.

Wooow, that picture. I was at Yosemite National Park this summer, where there is this cliff called El Capitan. We saw a lot of climbers about to go up, and just after coming down :) It takes them four days to climb up.

I'm not much of a climber, though I do small scale rock climbing, but I like doing hikes up to high places instead? Like, I didn't climb El Capitan, but I took a trail up to a point near the top of El Capitan instead ^^ Took us 11 hours round trip. No fear of heights at all here, I actually took a nap just on the edge of the cliff at the top XD

Ooooh, it's a beautiful place. The only problem was how crowded it was, there's so many people who go there that even in the harder, more remote hikes we were constantly seeing people. I really recomend going on an off-season to avoid the crowds

Okay, I love heights and vertigo has never been an issue... THAT would freak me out.
Nothing between myself and a very horrible death but a few cables and 2 inches of plastic tarp that would be insanely easy to roll off of in one's sleep?

Oh man i love hiking and bacpacing on mountain trails...but i cannot rock climp for the life of me! Im the same way haha, a couple of years ago i had the chance to climb Half Dome in Yosemite and if you look at any pictures of the climb to the top...no way was i gonna be able to do that, which was pretty lame. I made it to the smaller bump and was crawing around just like you were haha

Im hoping i can go back to yosemite ib the summer again soon, or maybe during a period in febuary where they have the Fire falls (pictures look so amazing), but so far i havent been able to :<


I hope things continue to go well for you this winter and beyond <3 Maybe one day we can go hiking together yeah? hehe

Wow, you sure "travel" a lot with your living places! Where are you in NYC? I love that damned city and I'm so looking forward to visit again, maybe springtime.

I might be in LA area or Monterey Bay. More likely in LA although I reeeeallly dislike LA.


Wow, awesome effect! May I see your uncle's photographing blog? I think I could make on Feb because if I will be in Florida on Jan, i would have time to plan and arrange trip to Yosemite :D

oh geez Im the same, LA is crazy and smoggy and trafficy and bleh. San Diego is much better ;D

[link] Heres his facebook page! It also has a link to his actual website which I believe has more photos. He does a lot of hiking around the country and has some interesting stories attached to some of his photos if you'd like to give it a look! ovo

As for the firefall, if you want to go up and take some photos I found this handly little website with dates and tips! [link]
