My first stop at 2:30 in the morning was Tunnel View. After I made my rounds, I drove back up to Tunnel View to see what I could capture in the morning light.
Another image from my recent trip to Yosemite. This is Bridalveil Falls from Tunnel View around sunset.
I spent some time around Yosemite Valley photographing different locations while the near full-moon was visible. I captured Half Dome, El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls and Cathedral Rocks from the Merced River.
While I was photographing El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls and Cathedral Rocks along the Merced River, I spotted some trees. I liked the white and green colors along with the red-ish bark.
Walking around a frozen Mirror Lake gives you a different perspective of Half Dome.
I had planned on spending the evening around the Merced River, but there was a lot of kids playing in the snow and the fact that visibility was getting worse. Drove up to Tunnel View (again) and spent the rest of the day…until my batteries went dead. Thankfully I was pretty much done shooting.
Got some morning light on Mount Watkins while I was walking around a frozen Mirror Lake.
