More Yosemite National Park

What can I saw, it is an awesome place to photograph. This is the 3rd in the series of Yosemite National Park 70mm Vertical Stitches of the shear granite size. I just love the way the light plays against the sharp edges of the granite at sunset at Yosemite. Amazing what people photograph, we met a born and breed retired New York couple while at this spot and they where photographing the bird life, rattling off names of birds and their breeding habits, but I got them off that subject on to more important things like New York Pizza 🙂

I know the spot this was taken as it was just across the meadow from the image I posted earlier in the week September MMIX

While is was a far walk, it was worth every step.

    Great shot mate,… would love to see it in a large print!!

  5. Thanks Luke – I know a couple of photographers that live really close, they make numerous trips a year into the park. I wish I was one that could as well, and if I was there the first place I’d go to is Stefano’s Pizza in Mill Valley and buy myself 1 large garlic cream chicken pizza and not have to share it with the wife this time 🙂

    Thanks Jamie

    Thanks Sean

    Thanks Clint – The larger the file the better this one looks. would be my favorite of the 3.

    Love it Neal!
    The trees and such give a great scale as to how bloody big this rock is! It looks fantastic!

  7. A stunner mate! It’s clear that you love this place, your passion really shows through in your images. I’m not a big fan of green so I might have desaturated that green reflection in the water but that’s just me. Brilliant shot. Tried a duotone of this?

  8. Thanks Dylan – You could be there right now shooting the snow season 😉

    Thanks Flem – I as well was not sure about the green tree reflection and have 2 other copies on files with the green de-sat and a version where I made that area somewhat darker. In the end looking at all 3 I went with the version on the blog, but really I could of flipped a coin on 2 of the 3. One will end up a stock image or something else I have in the works for the new year. I have no tried the duotone though …. yet 😉

  10. Thanks Kirk – I am looking at late September early Oct 09 for a return visit. I saw that show as well 🙂

  11. nice Neal, I’m not a fan of the green either, might look better warmer, i.e. yellow orange.

  12. Thanks CF I’ll have to try that out as I only have a desat one as an alternative…..
    Found a pic today that the wife took of myself about to take this actual pic, pretty cool I;ll have to post it along with this image.
