with Tom Peck
Monday 17 to Monday 24 September 2018. (8 days - 7 nights) . (8 places)
Yosemite is synonymous with landscape photography and was home to some of the greatest landscape photographers of the past, including the renowned Ansel Adams, and Galen Rowell - Yosemite was where they made some of their iconic images. We will start however in San Francisco by photographing the famous Golden Gate Bridge from both sides of the Bay and If we are lucky, we might get the fog rolling in from the Pacific to give our shots that moody factor. We will also do an evening shoot of the bridge to capture some stunning light trail images.
Then off to Yosemite! We will capture the early morning atmosphere of the mist rising up from the meadows and the rivers, with Half Dome in the background and El Capitan glowing in the early sunlight. We will photograph Vernal and Nevada Falls - still dramatic even this late in the year! The time of year will allow us to capture the gorgeous fall colours of the cottonwood trees at Tuolumne Meadows and to drive up to Glacier Point to shoot Half Dome as the light falls at dusk. We can even try star trails (Glacier Point is a favourite spot for star gazers!) and, of course, we will photograph Tunnel View, made famous by Ansel Adam's iconic photograph 'Clearing Storm'. There will be endless subject matter for landscape enthusiasts in this most wonderful of America's National Parks.
Our accommodation will be in Yosemite Cedar Lodge, just outside the park, which will give us easy access to all the main sites.
