Yosemite National Park

2019-05-31

I have been to San Francisco many times for high tech business meetings and conferences, and never made the drive to Yosemite. This year I did and managed to get one full day and two half days of of shooting in. In addition to the shooting, I was beta testing a new version of PhotoWalkIdeas with a new ‘Guided Tour’ feature that used Maps to guide me to the locations that I wanted for my shots.

Spring Day for Snow Geese

Spring 2019 has been a tough year for snow geese photos. A combination of a slow snow melt, and lots of hunters spread out the geese and make they very skittish. With the arrival of spring the snow geese will be moving north, so we made one last trip to have a look for snow geese and enjoyed a wonderful day.

Sunrise in Patagonia

For many photographers, sunrises are kind of cliche. Pretty colours in the clouds is kind of an easy way out to get an image that appeals to people. Well, here are mine anyway. In Patagonia, a day without wind is not common, so when it is calm there is a chance for fog to form over the rivers and wet lands adding to the feeling of the morning. All these shots are from one morning where the horses came over for a visit, as did a young fox. The soft pink skies were in the opposite direction of the hard orange sun rise.
