(The following is offered as good-natured scolding to the photo community at large, just so the tone of this is not misunderstood.)
So, there I was, last night (Sunday) by myself, not another soul anywhere... setting up my tripod in the middle of the road 'cause there was NO ONE out shooting anywhere in the 3/4 moonlight, mist everywhere just after the storm broke. WHERE were the other photographers? I shot for 3 hours and I could have run down the street naked for an hour and no one would have known (thank God). At the west end of the valley I didn't see one vehicle the whole time I was shooting.
Folks, Landscape Photography 101; you shoot Yosemite after the storms clear. There was tons of light last night with all the mist... it was ridiculous!!
There's more stormy weather predicted for most all this week, so get off your duff and get with it!! The waterfalls look like peak spring flow... RAGING! 10 days ago they were bone dry. THIS is what shooting in Yosemite is all about!
