There’s nothing like the stillness of the morning! In this case, it lead to some awesome reflections. This is from a small little lake not far from Tioga Lake in Yosemite. It was a great little place to go for a pleasant morning walk.
I apologize for the lack of a video tutorial today. My head is still swimming from my recent trip and it’s taking a little bit to get caught up with everything here. I want to take the time to bring you a high quality and well presented video rather than a hastily made, poor quality one. Just give me a little time and I’ll have a new one up for you as soon as possible!
Here’s one of the first shots I processed from Yosemite. This was taken at Tioga Lake about an hour after sunrise. I was heading back from shooting at another location when the gorgeously still reflections caught my eye and I pulled over to get this shot. The weather that morning was great for taking photos. The storms of the previous evening were breaking up and left scattered clouds in the still air which made great light for shooting well after sunrise.
Thank you for all the nice comments yesterday! I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on the… developing situation .
This is a shot of the face of Half Dome at Yosemite. I find it absolutely incredible how these trees grow seemingly in solid rock! I’m off to some remote locations here in Arizona this weekend to do some night photography. I’m aiming to get some nice shots of the Milky Way but we’ll see what happens. What do you have planned this weekend?
Just a quick post for today. I made the short hike to the Mirror Lake area when I was in Yosemite. The lake wasn’t such of a big deal, but the view of Half Dome mixed with the gorgeous clouds was pretty incredible. I used a Nodal Ninja 5 panorama head to create this 7 frame image. What do you think?
During my recent trip to Yosemite, I spent a couple of early mornings at the classic tunnel view hoping to catch a good sunrise. Since I had absolutely no internet signal (yay!), I had to rely on my assistant (wife) to forecast the weather (she went to weather.com). She relayed to me that it was supposed to be cool (freezing ass) and party cloudy (not a cloud in the sky). As it would turn out, both mornings were completely cloudless (don’t rely on weather forecasts from your wife). Undiscouraged, I was glad that I was there early enough to catch blue hour.
I know it’s the classic shot that everyone gets when they go to Yosemite, but it’s so beautiful that I couldn’t resist. I love how the blue light here plays on the mountains and turns the mist in the trees blue. For fun, I’ve included a shot of the same exact view that I took the previous evening when I got into the park.
