Yosemite Falls

 

Yosemite National Park has to be one of the most beautiful parks in the US. Everywhere you look, there is another breathtaking scene or something majestic to look at. The weather changes by the minute, going from hot and steamy to cool and foggy to cloudy and rainy and back to cold and snowy. Photographing this park was so wonderful for me that I had to go back just 5 months after my first visit. The photos I’ve shared are just a few of the thousands that I took. This one is a view of Yosemite Falls that thousands of people see each day when visiting Yosemite.The falls are flowing more than normal because of the huge amount of snow they got this winter. So I was fortunate to see all of the waterfalls when the water was really gushing!

Golden Hour at Half Dome

“A kind of golden hour one remembers for a life time… Everything was touched with magic.” ~ Margaret Bourke-White, American photographer & photojournalist. It was awe-inspiring to see the sunset light up Half Dome at Yosemite National Park.

I wasn’t feeling well the evening that I took this photo, and we were going to go to the clinic, but halfway there, we found out that it was closed.  So we turned back to where our group was, and decided to take a few photos by the car while waiting for them to finish.  I saw that the sun was starting to light up Half Dome, so I ran over to Sentinel Bridge and started shooting.  It is wonderful to be in the right place at the right time.  This brought me joy, and I started feeling better (with the help of a few medicines).

Here is a photo of me waiting for the group.  Roberta at Yosemite phone photo 5-4-17
