Yosemite National Park Revisited
Yosemite National Park is one of the most visited and photographed National Parks in the US. I spent a week of my life in this majestic place and only scratched the surface of the grandeur that is Yosemite National Park.
Yosemite Valley is iconic in every sense of the word. It is a paradise for the eyes and soul for people from all over the world. It is a place that bonds people through beauty, creates memories from experiences and leaves you speechless time and time again. I made my first trip to Yosemite this spring after dreaming about this place my whole life.
There is one scene I’ll never forget in Yosemite and many of you will identify with it. It is the scene where you first see Yosemite Valley, with El Capitan, Half Dome and the numerous waterfalls all converging in the most perfect valley you’ve ever seen. It literally took my breath away and I still get chills thinking of that special moment.
You’ll see plenty of people no matter the time of year and I happened to be there for Memorial Day Weekend and Tioga Pass had just opened. This was a recipe for crowds, congestion and noise. The challenge of photography is to eliminate all that and show the overwhelming sense of peace I felt while walking the meadows in the full moon, trying to capture the elusive rainbow of Yosemite Falls and hours spent in quiet places off the beaten path.
This post is all about the not-often-seen scenes that bring me back to this special place on our planet. There is so much to explore so get away from the crowds and find your own paradise there:) Going to Yosemite National Park at sometime in your life just might change it for the better! EE
