Mirror Lake

I just came back from Yosemite. IT was pretty crowded today and it was hard to get a parking spot. On the bright side, the falls are full of water and the photographic opportunities are endless. We hiked from the Ahwahnee hotel to Mirror Lake and I was pleased with this photograph.

Yosemite Valley in May

There are many small ponds in Yosemite Valley due to the snow melt and the above normal precipitation this year. These ponds are a paradise for photographers since they create beautiful reflections of the surrounding mountains.

The Merced River in May

May is a wonderful time in Yosemite Valley. The landscape changes basically daily and there is always something exiting to photograph. The waterfalls are at their peak and there is still snow left in the higher elevations.

Bridalveil Creek

I took this image with an infrared filter. Since the filter cuts out more than 99% of the normal light I had to use a long exposure time. I took photographed this image just below the fall. Enjoy!

Yosemite Valley

I have seen many images and photographed Yosemite Valley many times from "Inspiration Point" and other classical photographic locations that I am always happy to see the Valley from a different perspective. Enjoy this one which I took away from the road!

Old tree in front of El Capitan and Half Dome

Notice how close El Capitan and Half Dome appear together in this image. David, my partner and I left the main road and hike towards the Cascades in order to get this shot.

Bridalveil Fall in April

My partner David picked me up and we went photographing in Yosemite. The weather was perfect for April and the fall are near their peak.
