El Capitan in the Evening Light

photoblog-day-2045

This is my favorite image from my last visit to Yosemite National Park. First, I wanted to drive by this place at the Merced river but my wife talked me into staying and I am glad I did. I moved the camera close to the water and used a graduated neutral density filter to get this image of El Capitan in the evening sun.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!

 

 

Snow in Yosemite Valley

photoblog-day-2043

It was a fascinating day in Yosemite Valley. The fresh snow, the clouds and the mountains around us inspired so many people to photograph around me. I am sure they all brought home some  incredible images. I decided to transform this image into monochrome. I wanted to show the dramatic of the clouds and the structure of the snow. I thought a lot of it got lost in the color version.

Enjoy and keep on working on your images!

 

First Snowstorm in Yosemite Valley 2016

photoblog-day-2042

The weather report looked promising. The first snow storm in Yosemite Valley for 2016. The system dumped a few inches of new snow on the ground over night and was on its way out in the morning. A perfect opportunity for every photographer. The clouds were hanging around. The sun was shining and there was snow on the ground!

Enjoy and keep on photographing!
