Yosemite Boardwalk

    Newer Older

    The morning mist starts to recede and the frost melts as the sun comes over the wall and begins to warm the valley.

    It was a cloudless weekend with plain blue skies, but still it's always great to be in Yosemite.
    Especially when it's with a sweetheart such as Jean Day. It's her birthday today so if you know her, head over to her stream and wish her a Happy Birthday!!

    ...heck, even if you don't know her it would be cool to wish her happy birthday ;-)

      Marc, you captured the mood wonderfully! Reminds me of the early mornings I've spent in this meadow looking for coyotes and bears to photograph. Seeing wildlife is always great, but there is no feeling like being alone in one those breathtaking meadows on a frosty morning as the sun warms the granite above. I miss it so much. Love the image!

      Jared Hughey As for wildlife, I only saw one Coyote while I was driving. By the time I parked and walked back up the road it was gone.

      Cool shot Marc! Leading line is killer. I like the bit of mist on the meadow as well.

      I like this a lot Marc. The subtle light in the valley and your leading lines give this great mood! Nice work. :)

      I love the composition here how the boardwalk leads you into the rest of the image where the light is fantastic!

      Wow, beautiful perspective. Love the position of the boardwalk in the frame.

      Nicely done Marc, especially with the skillful balance of light between the misty cold frosty meadow and the warm sun bathed valley walls. Are you inviting me on a walk down that nicely curving boardwalk? Sounds like Jean and you had a lot of fun.
