More from Yosemite '08  
Here are some photographs from Yosemite taken during the last weekend.

The snow is melting and for now there are waterfalls everywhere...

The Yosemite valley with the beautiful Half Dome in the background

The Yosemite Chapel. More here: http://www.yosemitechapel.org/

On a weekend to get a snap with no people on a Yosemite bridge, you gotta wait. I wasted twenty minutes of my life for this one frame... :)

The creeks everywhere are beginning to come alive...

Under the Bridalveil falls.

the last two are a treat to the eyes ! simply awesome. The greenery for sure adds a lot of richness.

Incredible shots. IMHO spring is the best time to see Yosemite in all it's Glory, and usually kids are still in school.

I went on the 6 day mule trip many years ago into the back country. (When I was pretty young, so it was a long, long time ago.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures.

I see you took my advice!!

Kathy Walkerkatbyte on April 23rd, 2008 06:05 pm (UTC)
I did and boy am I glad. I love Yosemite, and now I have a new friend!! Thank you so much.

Great! Didn't get to see any wildlife?
Yathinyathin on April 23rd, 2008 06:28 am (UTC)
Nopes, the density of wildlife is rather poor in Yosemite when compared to the tropical forests of India.
depontideponti on April 23rd, 2008 07:01 am (UTC)
But density or not, you managed to capture more wildlife than most working people do in these short months...

I am sending a little bird hopping all the way to you, Yathin....so hoppy birdy to you!

Lovely, lovely, lovely...made me both nostalgic for when I went and also made me long to go back...

Marvellous place and beautiful photos.

That wait was worth it man, it looks as if that bridge otherwise is a desolate place;-)

Stunning pictures! I wish I was there traveling with you ... Never been in Yosemite... You are so lucky :)

Yosemite is truly one of the world's most beautiful places...

Re: !!!
Photographs don't capture scale well enough... but gasping is what most people are seen doing while they walk in the valley floor! :)

agree about the scale. i like the last pic the most, although i think it's over saturated. if you didn't post-process it, then it's surreal :)

Re: surreal?
> if you didn't post-process it, then it's surreal

it depends. if you consider in-camera setting of saturation to high as post-processing... ;)
