Yosemite Visit

April 23, 2015  •  3 Comments

In addition to the Tahoe workshop below I was fortunate enough to meet up with some photographers in Yosemite NP. One of the photographers was the renowned Ted Grant from Vancouver, BC. Ted's been a photojournalist his entire professional life, which I think goes from his embryonic stage to his current 84 years young! You can see some of his fantastic work and read about him here: http://tedgrantphoto.com

Ted meets another icon, Half Dome:

There's very little water in Yosemite (though not completely dry from recent rains). Bright sun makes sweeping landscapes difficult (impossible?) so concentrating on small details works and is still very fulfilling. The dogwoods graced us with their blooms and I tried to capture their delicate beauty against the backdrop of the somewhat flowing Merced River:

There were some remaining puddles around that provided some unique ways to photograph the grandeur of this park:

No finer place to sit, relax, and read than in one of the Ahwanee Hotel's reading rooms. The outside view isn't too shabby either:

I've always loved this view: just wasn't willing to wake up early enough to catch it in some good light:

That shot of the two icons is magnificent. Shot from below, Ted seems to tower above the ground.
