Springtime in Paradise

May 12th, 2019

During the last few weeks, I’ve visited Yosemite Valley several times and I’d like to share my new images with you. Having lived in or nearby the Valley for forty years, it would be all too easy to become jaded or bored photographing the small area for so long. Over the course of a year, I really don’t visit that often. However, whenever I go I find something amazing and wonderous to see, and sometimes photograph. When sharing this beauty with my students, I reengage with and refresh my long love affair with this sanctuary, this paradise.

I hope you enjoy this collection, and that you’ve had a chance to engage with springtime in your areas. Please let me know your favs and add your comments below!

Kind regards, Bill

    Marvelous moon shot! The B&Ws are thought provoking (especially Upper Yosemite Fall), and the water shots are highly evocative. Enjoyed seeing them all.

  4. Thanks for sharing your experience. Yes, making art is a process of following your heart!

  5. Thanks gor sharing your work!!

    In Kelowna, BC is a small Japanese garden and when I lived there I tried to visit once a week. Over several years I made more than a thousand images in the small space. I won’t say they were all good images but I will say that inspiration is on the inside. Perspective IS Everything.

    Mike.
