Yosemite Autumn

Greetings from the Sierra!

I have been slowly catching up with post-processing new images taken this autumn in Yosemite. What glorious light we found!  Here is a set of my favorites, and I’d love to hear which one(s) you like the most.  Thanks!

Enjoy, Bill

With the winter season in Yosemite approaching, great photographic opportunities arise with snowstorms, dramatic clouds, ice on the river, and more.  Consider booking a session with me soon to ensure the date that works for you.  If you have any questions, send me an email.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”
— John Muir, Our National Parks , 1901, page 56.

    1. I heard a story about the Starbucks effect the other day. Starbucks had made a point of putting stores near small mom&pop coffee houses across the country with the express purpose of out-competing them – all of the small business owners got scared, but the end result was that they got more business – the Starbucks drew in the crowds who then discovered the small mom&pop place and the superior quality and subsequently made the switch… funny how that works

    2. #8 is so hilariously true…that boy just needs to run down the field. and i second #9. knew he would be rusty and unsure….but the kid showed a lot of mental toughness to hang in there and come back like he did. he’s something special.

  15. In order to promote the website, the web master must always
    adhere to the general rules in search engine optimization.
    In your Ad – Words campaigns you must wisely find high profitable keywords, the “buyer kind” of keywords.
    Google reckons
    that this will improve the search process and save
    you time.

  16. Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting
    to know your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to
    swap solutions with other folks, why not shoot
    me an email if interested.

  17. Thanks David, Stu and Richard for the feedback!

    Richard, if you don’t come in winter you will still miss some great light! We had especially good autumn color, and even then it is still dull compared to your area!

  18. Bill,
    Happy Thansgiving to you , and your family.

    All these images are inspiring. My only problem: the light is so nice that I cannot imagine a winter private session with you. I would miss this light!

    Cheers,
    Richard Riebel

  19. Bill,
    “Oak Reflections, El Capitan and the Merced River” is my winner. The granite wall of El Capitan really separates and makes the trees stand. Of course, there’s the fantastic reflection, the graceful bending of the tree trunks, the horizontal line of the far bank of the river, and the dash of texture and green color from the grass in the foreground. Nice lighting on the trees and beyond. Really lovely shot.
    Best wishes for the holidays to you and your family,
    Stu Gordon
    Bend, OR

  20. Reall have enjoyed the fact that you have shared your Images and expertise. I hope that next year I will be able to take a course with you. My favorite image is the Oak and Pine…..thank you as always for sharing .
