The Jigokudani Yaen-koen (altitude 850 meters) is located in the Valley of Yokoyu River sourced from Shiga-Kogen of the
Joshinetsu-Kogen National Park in northern part of Nagano prefecture.
Because of the very steep cliffs and the steam coming off the springs in everywhere, ancient people called this valley ‘Jigokudani (Hell valley)’ .
Also it is buried in snow almost one third of the year. Even that kind of severe environment here is a paradise on earth for monkeys to live in.

Here's a shot of the Nevada Falls in Yosemite, CA. As with my Half-Dome video, this is again with my Nikon D500 paired with the 200-500mm f/5.6 VR.

Here's another video from my trip last June to Yosemite. This was shot with a Nikon D500 with a 200-500 f5.6 lens at 4K resolution. VR enabled and on a tripod. Worked great. This is the TOP of Half-Dome and I'm at Glacier Point. I have no idea what the line of sight distance is. But you can see all the hikers. 👍🏻enjoy!

Always Loved, Never Forgotten, Rory Coe Sept 15, 1986 — May 22, 2016

A talented and daring kid grew up to be talented and daring young man. My nephew. He delivered many of what I consider some of my most fun and exciting photos. This was from the last year Yosemite had significant rain fall(July 2011). So much that in July the highest mountains still had snow. This water was raging so much and was so COLD that I only got in once the entire week we were there. He flipped over on his tube but never panicked. Got himself back up on the tube just in time for the scarier set of rapids. That's Rory. Excellent athlete in just about everything he tried. I got to play about 2-3 years worth of softball with him and a few of his friends to help fill out the team I had with some co-workers. He was the player I grew up wishing I could be. There's a lot of pain our family now as we lost this young man to a darkness all too familiar to families worldwide. Addiction to drugs poisoned his mind so much that he believed his only escape was to end his life with us here. Please, for anyone reading this that is dealing with addicting and/or suicide, seek help. If you can't find family or friends, find someone. Love is all around us. Someone will help. Don't take that next step because that cannot be undone. The burden you may feel that you are causing others is not nearly the same weight as the loss everyone will feel from losing you. I can't remotely imagine what any of you are going through, but try to fight for your life because even though you may not feel you deserve it, there are those that love you and will fight for you. But often we don't know how to fight for you. So tell us. Tell us that you want and need us to do. Because we want and need you. Always remember and never forget us.

He thought perhaps he could do and handstand. Realizing the folly of the idea, he just smiled and laughed.

About a year before I bought a Nikon D70, I tried sports photography with a Nikon Coolpix 5700. 3 FPS and the screen was dark during the whole burst AND took forever to write data to the memory card.
