Yosemite for the First Time

Does it look like we're having fun?! #LumiaExplorers

Does it look like we're having fun?! #LumiaExplorers

As you know, I love adventure, travel and capturing that priceless moment to share with my friends and family.  So when Nokia invited me to the Yosemite for a photo workshop with landscape photographer, Colby Brown, I jumped at the chance.  It was my first time going to the Yosemite and it was an amazing trip!  They put together a group of 15 awesome people from different walks of life, to capture the beauty of Yosemite on our Lumia phones, for its 150th Anniversay.  We were the #LumiaExplorers!

It's very rare that 15 strangers are brought together on an adventure, and click immediately.  But that's exactly what happened. We were like a family in no time!  There's something about being surrounded by nature, that brings people together.  It's like being at camp again when I was a kid. 

This is our normal :)

Over the course of our two day exploration, we went on nature walks to see the giant sequoias, a few waterfalls and landmarks.  All unbelievably beautiful.  I captured all my favorite moments with my Lumia Icon.

My favorite scenic photo was this one, taken on my Nokia Panorama app, with the HDR filter from Camera 360.  This is probably the best photo I have ever taken . . . seriously!

Thanks to Nokia US, Yosemite & Visit California for this amazing experience! It's been a month since this trip, and I miss them all! Til next time!
