p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sequoia Recommendation for Sunrise/sunset


Hello,

I have a family car camping coming up in Mid July at Lodgepole Campground in Sequoia NP with another family who are the first time campers.
I would like some recommendations for sunrise/sunset/night photo op locations which is not too far from road/trail head. I'm willing to hike 1 or 2 miles(each way) before/after sunrise/sunset, but cant go too far into the wild. I would have opportunity to go out to take shots for 2 sunsets and 2 sunrises.

Thank you!!!

It is sort of obvious, but Moro Rock is a likely bet, especially for folks who haven't been there before.

Thanks Dan, you're the wikipedia of photo ops =)
Do you have any other suggestions for me to go alone? I would be much faster without all the ppl moving together.

I'm afraid that my front country experience in Sequoia is a bit limited I've mostly backpacked there!

There isn't much else than what Dan suggested. You will find that much of Sequoia where the road and campsites are is just forest filled with tall trees... So there isn't much in the way of big open area's which would really benefit from sunrise or sunset colors. With going to Sequoia, your focus should be more of using the lower angled light for shots of the Sequoia's with the softer light.
