Yosemite images

Just wrapped up a few days in Yosemite National Park.  Here are a few sample images.  More later.

  1. Awesome collection of amazing images, Mel. I especially love the vertical panoramas, though the black and white shots are incredible as well. If this is just a “sample,” I can’t wait to see what else is in the wings.

    • Vertical panoramics get forgotten easily – maybe our brains aren’t wired to think up and down. Still the best way to show that dimension without strange cropping, though. Thanks for the compliment.

  2. Very nice Mel,
    The view from the tunnel is iconic and the light on the Half Dome shot is magic. Glacier Point though is still far and away my favorite vantage point. It also has the advantage of being much less crowded than the valley floor, at least back in the day

    • Thank you. Glacier Point was pretty much empty from 7am until around 10:30 when the crowds started dribbling in. After lunch it was bustling with people. But once we got on a trail into the woods the people dropped off pretty quick. Great place to spend some time just looking!
