Yosemite has many iconic locations for landscape photography. And the image opportunities from any particular location change not only with the season but also with the weather of the day. This particular 2 day period was beautiful, cold and clear, a small gap in the storms that have been plentiful this winter.
A few weeks back Barb and I traveled to Italy with friends Jim and Paula. While there we met new friends Carol and Kevin from Florida. We spent almost two weeks traveling mid to northern Italy. To try and make some sense of the all images I captured I decided to make separate posts for each general location we visited. This first series was our last stop in Venice. The center of Venice where most tourists congregate is very commercial as well as very crowded once the cruise ships disembark their guests around 10 am each morning. Early morning is the best time to enjoy the solitude of the city. And like most tourist attractions if you find where the locals live and hang out it can be quite an experience. Venice is truly a beautiful city. Going back for sure.
Barb and I just returned from a much needed vacation. This time we were off to Alaska, traveling from Denali to Whittier and Seward. We were fortunate enough to join the Denali 30% club with several clear days (supposedly about 70% of visitors never get to see Mt McKinley due to weather). In general the stars aligned throughout the whole trip. Along the way we were able to get a few images to share. Enjoy.
I had the opportunity to photograph Yosemite this week with some friends. What made the trip a bit different than previous trips was the absence of heavy flowing water. Many of the falls had no water which meant the streams were down to a trickle. This afforded us the opportunity to capture images from places generally not accessible, thus giving us a bit of a different perspective.
