p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Yosemite, Horsetail Fall again. (icon warning)


I've shot Horsetail from this angle before but wasn't completely happy with the print. It was less than 6megs after the crop had some ca and a little camera shake. Though these shortcomings were noticed mostly by be I wanted to fix them. So armed with a 5DmkIII I tried again this year. Worked out weather conditions were favorable both days I was there and though there was not much in the way of water flow at least light was on my side.

From day 1 this year Sat. the 16th left from So Cal in the morning drove the the valley floor and headed to the picnic grounds got there about 1 1/2 hours before sunset and a short wait later...







The flood of photographers has increased in the last few years that they now have "event parking" in the road marked off. The number of photographers keeps growing and growing.

Doug, very nice results!
I have been there a few times & the glut of photographers is a bit much.
I will go again, maybe next year..

Thanks for posting!

Hey Doug,

Very nice job with both of these. How great you got to go back to sharpen up your shots! I also like you posting a shot from both vantage points to show the difference that just standing a couple of miles away will make.

Great shots. Nice compositions. You really clarified for me what moving to the south side does for the image. Both are very nice.

These are Waycool. Specially the second. Headed up next week depending on the weather. Can't say I like the report about the crowds though. Nice captures both

For those going to The Valley to try their hand at photographing Horsetail Fall this weekend, a few other activities of interest to photographers:

Opening this weekend: Yosemite Renaissance 28: A Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art of Yosemite and the Sierra. Exhibition Saturday, February 23 to Sunday, May 5, 2013 at the Yosemite Museum Gallery, Yosemite National Park. The public is invited to the Awards Reception, this Friday, February 22nd, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Ansel Adams Gallery: Michael Frye's "Yosemite Meditations" exhibit opened on January 6 and continues for one more week through March 2, and features now and classic Yosemite photographs of Michael's.

If you are like me, when you shoot in The Valley you start (very!) early and shoot until the light is gone... and at some point in the middle of the day you need a break! I often wander over to the AAG for a bit at that point - always good photography and other art to see, and often interesting people to meet. And this time of year, when the sun goes down early, there is plenty of time to drop in on events like the Yosemite Renaissance exhibit after the day's photography is finished. (If you make it to the YR28 reception on Friday, wander by and say "hi.")

And good luck to all of you trying to shoot horsetail... or any of the myriad other worthy subjects in The Valley.
