Probably my last image from my latest trip up to Glacier Point. This was earlier then the other sunset picture I posted a few weeks ago: Storm Clouds and Sunset at Glacier Point.
Sunset from Glacier Point
As I was leaving Glacier Point Friday evening, the moon finally cleared the clouds. I stopped at Washburn Point to have dinner, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and just enjoyed the view. I thought I’d try and get some night time shots of Yosemite Valley by moonlight. I also stopped at Valley View (Gates […]
I wanted to photograph the moon the day before the full moon. This way the moon could be visible in the daylight, as well as the surrounding landscape. Unfortunately, there was a afternoon storm over Glacier Point, so no moon that afternoon. The sunset made for some nice colors though!
Since Saturday was going to be another full moon, I thought I’d drive up to Glacier Point on Friday afternoon to photograph the moon while it was daylight. By my calculations, the moon would be nearly behind Mount Florence as it rose. The only problem was the weather; the forecast called for 20% showers in […]
I guess because it’s been so hot lately, but I’ve been thinking about fall lately. I’ve been going through some of my older images this week. I found and processed this image of the fall colors at Fern Spring I took on Thanksgiving last year in Yosemite Valley.
Fern Spring in the Fall
It seemed like the focus this afternoon was going to be Half Dome with the impending sunset. Still, I kept looking for other photo opportunities. I liked the way the light was over Vogelsang Peak and the clouds to the right, so I switched lenses to zoom in for a better view.
It’s now round two! Going through my recent photos from my Yosemite trip from a few weeks ago. This was one of the first photos I took when I first got to Glacier Point. Sunset was still about 45 minutes away, but I really liked the “electric clouds” here. I liked the colors here, but […]
I normally would have driven by Fern Spring since I’ve photographed this a few times, but I didn’t think Josh had. Since I was there, I just had to take a few photos, just because it was there. I tried to find some different takes of this small icon.
I was done photographing the sunset at Glacier Point. I was just standing there and one of the tourists asked me if I were waiting for the moon. Honestly, I forgot and I really had no intention of staying. I figured by the time the moon showed up, it would be completely dark. So I […]
I had an opportunity to meet a local (Atwater) photographer and spend the whole day shooting and talking. I wanted to stick around town, maybe Hornitos, Lake Yosemite or San Luis NWR. Unfortunately we couldn’t come to an agreement, so I reluctantly (seriously) suggested Yosemite. I said reluctantly because I new it was going to […]
