Yosemite

USA2014_J016150314Travelling along the USA West Coast during Summer 2014, one of my highlights was our stop at Yosemite National Park. Keen to explore this area of stunning natural beauty, this was a dream location for a landscape photographer. Hiking around the Half Dome, it was impossible not to recall the wonderful photography of Ansel Adams, and to understand how he became so captivated with this immense and beautiful landscape.

It was far more challenging than I had expected, in the blinding light of the August sun, to capture the scale and magnificence of the landscape, and the detail of the forest against the rock formations. But a great photography challenge nonetheless, and it was a wonderful few days photographing. The results are in the Yosemite Photo Gallery.
