Late afternoon in Yosemite Valley
Posted By: GeoJerry, 12-02-2012, 10:38 PM

Here's a shot of Yosemite Valley from the valley floor. You normally see this picture taken from the Wawona Tunnel lookout, but here I am standing near the western entrance to the valley late one afternoon. It's a tradeoff. More interesting in the nearness and texture of the granite, and lots more detail and color from the trees.... but no Half Dome. It's behind the trees in the distance, in the center of the picture.

Very nice! Even better than the first one, The soft effect is just right on this one and not too much.

Btw, I believe it's a HDR given the perfect lighting all round? Anyway, very nice work!
Thanks very much catastrophe! Yes these are both very mild HDR's. The pictures were very contrasty and I also wanted to bring out the greens of the trees.

I can't believe how relatively close I live to Yosemite and have still yet to take pictures there! I'm jealous.
Great shots.

Thanks loco! It's worth a trip no matter how far you have to go to get there.

Man, drop everything and get out there! Actually I'd like to shoot Yosemite in winter. Thanks Mike.
