I lived near Yosemite National Park all my life but never had a chance to go there until today. I gotta say it is one of the most beautiful place that I've ever been and I had such a great time taking pics. I took so many great pics but I will share these 4 for now.

Here are some pics from the park.

Beautiful images...great compositions...I especially like the perspective of the falls and the downed tree in #3 and the framing of El Capitan(?) with the autumn leaves in #4!

I visited Yosemite a few years ago and was awed by the scenery. I visited in late Spring when all of the falls were at their best. Unfortunately though, a couple of the access roads to many areas of the park were still closed due to snow.

Would love to see more of you images!

This is the first time you've been to the park?!! I just wish I lived closer so I could spend more time in the area. It's one of my most favorite places in the world!

Really love the pictures, they are all very nicely done, from the classic Yosemite views to the more unusual viewpoints (love the log, the lighting was nice with that one).

Wonderful shots! I really hope to one day get there. Hopefully when my son is a little older (he's 2 now) we'll make it happen.

Thanks again for sharing!

I agree with everyone here. These are awesome shots. I was there 20 plus years ago and still love looking at my Slides.
Did you Do HDR on these, or a polarizer to get those dark blue Skys?



I Think that #3 is Actually "half dome" but i am Not sure

Nice pix!
it's been 20 + years for me too... I lived 49 miles from the main entrance and every time I went there I saw things I missed the other times... one of our best Nat. Parks, IMO.
