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.

Yosemite

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!

Nevada Falls



Bridal Veil Falls


We saw this bird and this flowering shrub, in the main part of the Village. 
(Still identifying them)



Everywhere I looked, something different appeared!




Mirror Lake 
(Between Half Dome and North Dome)


Dead trees in front of El Capitan.

Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls


Wolf lichen on conifer


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! 









Pine tree and El Capitan



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!
