|Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View.|
I couldn't help but think of Ansel Adams while visiting Yosemite for the first time. So I decided to deliberately shoot and compose some images for black and white processing to honor his genius. One of Adams more famous shots is of a moonrise over Half Dome. I felt pretty fortunate to get a half moon rising over Bridal Veil falls, the whole time thinking of Adams image. I also was very intrigued by the wind and its effects on the tall waterfalls. Watching the force of gravity and wind whip the water back and forth was mesmerizing. I put on a telephoto lens to try to capture this phenomena, but the photos don't really do it justice. Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in.
