p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Going to Yosemite Valley for a Couple of Days...Suggestions


My wife, son and I are heading into Yosemite valley for a couple of days starting tomorrow, leaving Friday. I have hiked a lot in the backcountry of the park but haven't been in the valley in a long time, and would love some suggestions on where to go. I know it will be crowded but that's what we are going to deal with. Thinking of hiking up to upper Yosemite falls, maybe hiking down from glacier point, etc. Also would love to hear suggestions for sunrise/sunset shots. There should be water running from the falls which is nice, and the weather looks amazing. Thanks!

I'm going to offer not specific location advice—though I certainly could—but rather a piece of general photography advice that works for me. I like to follow the "edge of the light" in the Valley as the day progresses. In other words I look for those places where sunlight meets the areas in the shadow of cliffs. You can often find a lot of really interesting light in these locations.

Thanks, I'll remember that for next time. We got back over the weekend, had a great time. Hiked to the top of Yosemite falls, that was a real killer hike!! But some great pics as well (imo). I'll post a few up later today.

How was the water flow in the falls? My wife and I will be there starting June 1st for four days of shooting. Considering the drought, I'm somewhat worried the falls will be unimpressive. Still, the worst day in Yosemite is better than the best day at work... or many other places.
