Starry Night and Yosemite Flow

Starry Night and Yosemite Flow

Yosemite was quite busy when we went in early May 2017. Not too bad, but still there were plenty of folks around. Tripods were set up everywhere-- especially at the famous viewpoints-- and the parking lots were often full. But with that being said, we didn't have any problems finding a space (of course we arrived well before sunrise and sunset); and we had reservations in the campsites so we always had a place to pitch tent. But it was still a little busy for our tastes. That's why I really enjoyed photographing the park at night. It was like we had the whole place to ourselves (except for the nights we went chasing moonbows. More on that to come...). Yes, the grey and white granite walls and silky white waterfalls and flow were a night time delight.
