Toulomne Meadows, Yosemite

Another from the Tioga Pass visit. This was the visit where I first shot with the Fuji platform, which ultimately convinced me to replace my canon landscape gear with the mirrorless Fuji XT-1.

Tioga Pass, Yosemite

in 2013 I happened to be at Yosemite when Tioga Pass opened for the season, so I headed up to explore. this is a vernal pond of melt water off the road that I was really taken with.

Yosemite Chapel

Every visit to Yosemite I’d tell myself I needed to shoot a good image of the chapel, and every trip I’d leave and then realize I’d forgotten again. So this trip I did.

Overall, I really like this shot. When you see this building in photos it can be quite charming. In person, it is actually quite plain and unremarkable, so the trick is finding lighting or angles to help show it off as well as you can.

And, of course, do it around the groups of tourists wandering around and trying to take their own snapshots.
