In 2000, “The Urban Elephant” brought viewers the touching story of Shirley and Jenny, two crippled elephants reunited at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee after a 22-year separation. The bonding was immediate, intense and unforgettable between the two former circus elephants. But long after the cameras were turned off, the wondrous moments would continue.

Yosemite Range of Light

from 

I am a destination visual artist who specializes in photography, timelapse cinematography, & filmmaking.  I love to travel, so if you have a project in some far flung location, lets talk.

Yosemite National Park, the High Sierra, and the Eastern Sierra are some of the most beautiful places on earth. Ever since I serendipitously won a trip to Yosemite when I was 18, the beautiful Range of Light has captured my heart and become my home. Nothing brings me more joy than to share this life changing beauty with others.

Ever since I became fascinated with timelapse photography almost 2 years ago, after seeing the work of Tom Lowe, I’ve wanted to do a piece on Yosemite and the Sierra. Now after almost 2 years of shooting, I’m thrilled to share. I hope you enjoy my vision of my home, the majestic Yosemite & Sierra. Best viewed Full Screen with Sound :)

If you would like to license any of my clips or hire me to shoot for you, please be in touch. I do have 4k footage available for licensing.

[video] Measuring the Record-Breaking Snowfall in Anchorage, Alaska — Daily News photographer Bob Hallinen captures the historic moment!

Watch Video Here

Anchorage winter of 2011-12 breaks seasonal snowfall record

National Weather Service forecaster Christian Cassell takes the official snowfall measurement for Anchorage at 4 p.m. on April 7, 2012, while Daily News photographer Bob Hallinen captures the historic moment. Saturday afternoon’s snow put Alaska’s largest city at 133.6 inches for the winter of 2011-12, breaking a record set in 1954-55 by an inch.

I just heard these words while sleeping: “Why torture me? Why does the criminal government of America torture me?”

I just got a dream about US torturing. While sleeping, I heard very clearly these words:

“Why torture me? Why does the criminal government of America torture me?”

Then, for about an hour, I got all kinds of prayers for those involved, especially those who insist we vote for Presidential candidates who will continue the torture that was escalated during the Bush/Cheney regime. And I prayed for those who insist people don’t vote for Ron Paul, the “Jesus’ Golden Rule” candidate.

And then I heard, awake this time: “The first thing to repent of is First Love.”

Which I assume involves the Greatest Commandment, not loving the Lord, our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength — so then we don’t do the Second Greatest Commandment either: love our neighbors as ourselves. To many are following the crowd instead of the HOLY Spirit.

Then I heard: “Give to me your pride.”

“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). Regardless of what our country is doing, please, let’s be holy and not participate in this madness that is destroying our country as we illegally and immorally hurt others.

In the first statement I heard, tonight, God actually calls our government a “criminal government.” I thought of how both Bush and Cheney won’t fly to certain countries now, afraid of being arrested for war crimes against humanity, but evangelicals are still voting for the same type of leaders.

Let’s be holy – Jeff

[2011] Ron Paul’s Statement of Faith

[Daily Paul comment] The real reason evangelical ‘Christians’ won’t support Ron Paul — “the so called evangelical right wing’s incredible and insatiable lust for war. War is not a family value. War is certainly not a Christian value. … Christ’s views on love and peace and so forth are pretty clearly spelled out. … Many professing Christians will be numbered with the goats on judgement day.”

Pastor Chuck Baldwin: Why Do Evangelicals Ignore Ron Paul? | My Opinion

Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘Christians’ have two sets of books: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If THEY didn’t take down the towers…???

Ron Paul Speaks To The Right To Life Foundation

Ron Paul at the Faith & Freedom Coalition Conference: “Life does begin at conception.” — We would like to think all we have to do is elect the right politicians and everything is going to be okay. But the government is a reflection of the people. The people change before the laws change. Morality has a lot to do with legislation.

Lew Rockwell: The Enemy is in Washington. That’s why RON PAUL runs NOT FOR GLORY, not for POWER, not for CONTROL. He runs to dismantle the aperatus in Washington. He wants to stop the war, stop the Fed’s counterfeiting, stop the rip-offs for the big bank, the big corporation, and for Big Pharma.” | CAN RON PAUL WIN? CAN THE ‘CHRISTIANS’ put their DESIRE FOR BLOOD below their desire to have some kind of standard of living…?

When we heard angels literally sing in Anchorage

I shared this on my Facebook page, recently.

I attended many Rodney Howard-Browne meetings 20 years ago in Anchorage, Alaska, in which violinist, Maurice Sklar played with great anointing.

One time, during group worship, WE COULD HEAR THE ANGELS SINGING. The keyboardist took his hands off of the keyboard to make sure it wasn’t his instrument.

The singing was the most beautiful and compelling I have ever heard — transcendent — a sound having so much upward energy that I would never tire of.

It sounded like it was coming from above the worship team, but in front of the stage [not anywhere near the loudspeakers].

Maurice and I were among the many (including my mom — so timely because Dad had recently died) who were GREATLY touched by the Holy Spirit during those 36 meetings, of which I attended 33.

One time, I wanted to talk to Maurice about microphones, but he was so touched by God that he had more important things on his mind.

Thank you, Maurice, Rodney and Anchorage Christian Center (now called City Church) — and Jesus!!!

May we make a home for God so He can dwell among us in fullness of joy and power!

If we build it He will come!
