El Capital In HDR

A Different Angle

I never noticed this side of El Capitan before. Every time someone drives to Yosemite they see the beauty of El Capitan from the south side but when I seen it from this angle, it was amazing, and then from this close. I was traveling with my daughter’s yearbook class and we stopped for lunch at this picnic area. There had been so much water due to the heavy rain. The river was high and moving super fast. I set my camera for the 3 brackets and then edited the photo using Photomatix.

Yosemite – El Capitan

Yosemite’s El Capitan

If you have ever been to Yosemite, then you are familiar with El Capitan. It is a very large mountain that sits in the middle of the park and is a remarkable site to see. It attracts thousands and thousands a year so that people can climb it and see its amazing view.

Rain Makes For Amazing Waterfalls

The recent rains has revived some amazing waterfalls that haven’t been seen in a very long time. Not to mention the amount of water in the rivers. If you get a chance to go up and visit the park, please be sure to be careful around the water, as we have already had a few incidents where people have drowned.


It has been a while since I have been up to Yosemite, but I was offered an opportunity to go with my daughter and her class. It was a great time to see all the kids working to get great shots. I can’t wait to see some of their work. I will continue to post some of my photos online, either on the site or somewhere on social media. Be sure to stay up to date by subscribing to all of my posts.
