As I was going through my archives I came across this one from a few years ago called Clouds Over the Kuna Crest. I’ve always liked it, but I thought I’d re-process it and leave it un-cropped this time. Hope you like them.
As I mentioned on my last entry, Gray Peak and the Moon, I had some issues with my 300mm lens. Once the moon was farther away, I switched to my 70-200 so I could capture Mt. Clark, Gray Peak and Mt. Starr King, and of course the moon.
Nice to see a plan come together. A few years ago I was at Glacier Point at sunset. Unbenounced to me it was also a full moon. If you’d ever tried to photograph the full moon and see some details in the foreground elements, it’s near impossible. That evening it didn’t go so well. Fast-forward
Last week as I was on the BACKPACKER Magazine Forum somebody started a “Show Us Your Reflections”. Going through my archives I came across several, including a color version that I posted in 2009, A Day in Yosemite. Thought I’d re-process it and convert it to a black and white.
I missed getting up to the high country last year, so when Tioga Pass opened up I made sure I was there. Took me a few weeks to get up there, but thankfully there was still plenty of snow and ice there. My normal plan is to get up around 1am and photograph sunrise and

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.
