Discovering Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park.

After visiting the Sequoia National Park, we made our way to Yosemite National Park.  We stayed in the Yosemite View Lodge, right at the entry to Yosemite.  Our hotel was a bit dated but backed up to the rushing river. That was really cool because you could hear the river at night.  Makes for some great sleeping.

I have always been a big fan of Ansel Adams.  He is the world famous photographer that grew up in San Francisco but lived most of his life in Yosemite National Park where  he became famous for his black and white landscape photography.  His gallery is in Yosemite and we were able to schedule a 1.5 hour “camera walk” where a professional photographer from his gallery took us to some of the spots where Ansel took his iconic pictures and explained light and composition.  This was WAY cool.

In the spirit of appreciation, here are some pictures I shot in black and white during our trip:

The colors in the spring are incredible, so I can’t leave you hanging without some color.

      Hi Rhonda. Yes, California has to be on your bucket list. There is so much to do and see here. We could spend a couple of months here without getting bored.
