Spring in Yosemite Photography Workshop Highlights, 2017

Sun Rays on Yosemite Valley Morning Fog (color)

Sun Rays on Yosemite Valley Morning Fog (color)

Yosemite Valley SpringWe had great conditions for my Yosemite in Spring photography workshop in May, 2017: mixed weather with morning fog, brief rain to created mist alongside Yosemite’s granite monoliths, clouds to decorate sunrise, “moonbow” lunar rainbows at night, a rainbow in Bridalveil Fall that I anticipated from the sun elevation and compass direction, blooming dogwood trees and wildflowers, waterfalls, creeks in high spring flow, and so much more. Of course all of this needed to be experienced from the right vantage point at the right time of day.

Outdoor Photographer Magazine published today that they selected one of my photos from this workshop as the winning image for their recent Iconic Locations challenge.  See their write-up on their site for more information on how the image was created:
https://www.outdoorphotographer.com/iconic-locations-assignment-winner-jeff-sullivan/

OP was kind enough to share the image on their Facebook page and Twitter timeline as well:

Congratulations to @jeffsullivanphotography for winning the recent Iconic Locations Assignment with the image, Sun Rays on Yosemite Valley Morning Fog. “On this sunrise at Yosemite’s iconic Tunnel View overlook, it had rained the day before, but the skies were forecast to clear up overnight, so I figured that it would cool down enough to have the water vapor condense as a ground fog. When we arrived the next morning, it was just thick enough to reach the treetops, creating some nice photographic opportunities. “There had been several dozen people at this viewpoint minutes before the sun rays appeared, but once the sun cleared the mountains, nearly everyone decided to go get breakfast. Someone in my workshop asked about that, but I said, “Let’s give it another five minutes.” Sure enough, when the sun closed the gap in the clouds and started shining down between them, light rays started moving around the Valley. “The dynamic range of the scene was too great for one exposure, so the sun ray image was created from five bracketed exposures, adjusted in Adobe Lightroom and combined in PhotomatixPro HDR software.” * * * #OPAssignments #iconiclocations #travel #adventure #tunnelview #Yosemite #landscape_lovers #sky_captures #landscapephotography #fantastic_earth #landscape_captures #ic_landscapes #ig_exquisite #ourplanetdaily #landscapelovers #instanaturelover #welivetoexplore #allnatureshots #specialshots #landscapestyles @yosemitenps

Geyser Basin Milky Way and Meteor

Geyser Basin Milky Way and Meteor – Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

This year was another productive one for landscape and night photography, with some nice results produced from Death Valley, California to Yellowstone, Wyoming.  Some of the nicer results produced from trips taken in prior years included results from several trips to Utah.  Two upgrades I made during the year that helped recover more results included Lightroom 6 and Photomatix 6.  See my recent post “Why Do Your Fall Images Look Better This Year?” for more on that.  I successfully avoided camera upgrades, but soon I’ll take critical looks at the latest Canon and Nikon models.

Weather Time-lapse: Lenticular Clouds Forming in the Eastern Sierra

Lenticular clouds are my favorite weather phenomenon, and my favorite to photograph and produce movies of. Fortunately we get them several times each year.

Here's the complete story of some we had earlier this week through sunset, in photos and video on my blog:

"Aunty Em, Aunty Em!"

Big winds in the Eastern Sierra today! I'm hoping for lenticular clouds tonight or tomorrow morning. The power is out at the moment, and things like lawn furniture are far downwind. I was getting pelted in the face with debris, so I put on ski goggles. I went and filmed from a dock, but it felt like it might catch the wind and launch me, so I came back in to scrape the debris out of my eyes. #weather #windy #easternsierra

Snow and Pogonip Ice Fog at Topaz Lake

We've had an event past few days at Topaz Lake on the California/Nevada border, first with 9"of snow by Thursday morning, then with "pogonip" ice fog forming every day since.  It looks like we'll have another morning with strong ice fog again this morning, creating hoar frost up to 1" thick on trees and other vegetation around the lake.  These are all photos captured on my iPhone 5S, I'll have photos from my Canon DSLR shortly.
