Photographing Yosemite


We’ve just returned from a weekend in Yosemite.  What a challenging place to take photographs!  Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  Why should that be challenging?  Just look at the photograph above (taken on this trip).  Taken from the Wawona Tunnel Overlook, this must be one of the most often photographed locations on Earth.  What can one do that is not just another snapshot?

So I got the idea of doing a photo essay on close-ups of trees studying  their bark.

When we arrived we saw that the dogwood tress are in bloom, so I decided to shoot them as well.

And, no, I couldn’t resist photographing the usual spots.
