Channeling my inner Ansel Adams (at Yosemite)

Playing around with my Yosemite photos, in Lightroom, and decided I needed to make some of them into black and white photos.

Welcome to Yosemite Valley! 

Let's begin our journey with some details.


Mt. Broderick (left), Liberty Cap (center), and the back of Half Dome (peaking between), all three towering over Nevada Falls!

Bridal Veil Falls

We saw this brown-headed cowbird and this flowering shrub, in the main part of the Village. 

Everywhere I looked, something different appeared!

The fauna was showing its diversity while we were there! Even new species of animals I have never seen before!

The flora was beautiful and diverse, too!

Farewell for now!

Crocosmia at dusk

Our Crocosmia plants are budding and one flower was fully open.  The lighting was beautiful, even though I used a flash for most of these, which gave an even more dramatic affect. Enjoy!
