The Pinnacles And The San Bernardino Mountains

The Pinnacles up in the San Bernardino Mountains are quite spectacular to behold. I grew up in the San Bernardino Mountains, and I always remember looking at the Pinnacles each day. This place is a part of my being, and I hiked up to the top of its peaks quite often. I enjoy capturing pictures of various things on the mountain, but my emotions always draw me back towards the Pinnacles. When I think of home: I think of the boulder-laden hills I used to gaze upon each day.

Above is a photograph of one of my favorite places in the San Bernardino Mountains, which is the Pinnacles. I love photographing the place where I grew up because it is nostalgic, and my photography inspires many of my art projects. There is just something mesmerizing about photographing and enjoying the place where you grew up. People often are itching to move away from home when they turn eighteen, but a few years later you might realize that you grew up in a beautiful place, and you might want to go back and photograph it. I know that happened to me a few years after I moved away from home to go to college.

Honestly, I love walking around the San Bernardino Mountains and taking pictures with my camera. Not only do I get a lot of good exercise during my walks around the mountains, but I also take some beautiful pictures as well. Walking is a highly effective way to burn calories, and in the age of the digital camera, very few people have excuses as not to be taking pictures of the things they enjoy. So go for a nature walk and start taking some pictures today.

The view of the tree in the foreground and the Pinnacles in the distance always calls to me. I adore this view, and it sustains me on days when the mountains are far away. I can look at a photograph of this view and feel immediately at home, and at peace.

One of my favorite views to photograph in the San Bernardino Mountains is Mount Baldy. I experiment by taking pictures of Mount Baldy from different views, and use trees to frame it.

Taking videos of the beauty up in the San Bernardino Mountains is another way to enjoy and document the beauty of nature.

Here is a video I created of the pink tinged sunset up in the San Bernardino Mountains.

The video above showcases the large boulders out at The Pinnacles, which are located in the San Bernardino Mountains.
