Twenty from Yosemite-- one of the world's most beautiful places. Yosemite Valley is simply a dreamworld-- a 7 mile long valley of granite walls that soar and waterfalls that roar. Deer, black bear, squirrels; ravens and rock climbers; hikers, photographers and tourists all frolic under quick clouds and dancing rainbows, side by side with the rushing waters of the Merced River.
In many ways Yosemite is a copy cat park. Lines of photographers and tripods are set up at the iconic locations of Valley View, Tunnel View, Swinging Bridge, El Capitan Meadow, the Mist Trail, etc... It's kinda like walking in the footsteps of the giants-- Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell, et al...-- while bumping into your peers along the way. It's a beautiful walk and one that was oh so rewarding. Especially considering all of the experiences were new to me. So in that way, these images are little unique moments in time, light and space. And I hope they touch on something universal.
Looking back at the eight or nine days that I spent in the valley, I see now that the journey was a magnificent chance to refine my craft along the well worn Yosemite path. I am so happy I did. I hope you enjoy these twenty images. Aloha, Lee
