On my way to Tuolumne Meadows to hopefully capture some nice sunset colors, I had to stop at Tioga Lake. I thought the afternoon light reflecting on the water, coupled with the still frozen lake, made some nice abstract images.
I decided change my website a bit. Since I’m a nature photographer, I wanted the site to reflect a more natural or outdoor look. I changed the color scene for a more earthy tone and I modeled the black and white photo, “Wintertime at the Tioga Lake in BW” as the top header. I used
It’s funny because I wasn’t even going to take more photos in the near-dark sky, but I couldn’t help myself taking just one more picture! I really like the white snow glowing in the sky. So I started the drive back to Lee Vining and the rest of my family. I kept looking at the
With sunset now behind the mountains, I focused my attention to the small strip of pastel colors right above the Kuna Crest. I was a little annoyed on the first image because somebody left their lights on. I waited for a few minutes with no luck (he was about 1/2 mile away), so I took
Well, here’s a few more pictures from my latest trip to Yosemite. I noticed a few clouds starting to form and was hoping they would be close enough to Mammoth Peak to photograph. That never panned out, so I switched to my wide angle lens (17-40) to capture sunset over Tioga Lake. Hope you like
I kept looking towards Mono Lake and started seeing some pretty colors in the sky, but by that time (8:15), it was too late to drive to a new location. The peaks started to change colors a bit and I noticed a few clouds were starting to flow towards my location! I just hoped the
While I was photographing Mammoth Peak from Tioga Lake last Monday, I decided to try some abstract/close-up photos. The first one really stuck me because of the light reflecting (slightly) on the melting snow. Since I was staring at Mammoth Peak, I just had to take some pictures of the floating ice. You can see
Since my family didn’t want to stay in the park while I took photos at sunset (and beyond), I dropped them off at the motel in Lee Vining, ate dinner, and drove back to the park. I decided to stay just shy of Tioga Pass, right here at Tioga Lake. I thought about walking (climbing)
Since Tioga Pass opened last weekend, it’s time for my annual “Go to the Snow and Take Some Pictures Before the Snow Melts”, trip. I also wanted to take the kids up to the high country too, so my wife booked a room in Lee Vining for Monday night. We made a leisurely drive through
Found out that Tioga Pass opened last week, so had to get up there before the snow melted. It was a nice trip. This was my first solo trip to Yosemite since my surgeries a few years ago. I met a couple of photographers; Harvey, Randal and Randal’s wife (sorry I can’t remember your name).
