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

Yosemite Moonbow Season Starts Soon!

I retried this lunar rainbow post as a fresh upload to my G+ Page, and that worked a lot better:

Originally shared by +Jeff Sullivan Photography
Yosemite Moonbow Season Starts in April!
After catching the setting sun’s light on Horsetail Fall this month, I can’t wait for the next big annual astronomical event in Yosemite: moonbows in the mist of Yosemite’s waterfalls. These night rainbows happen at certain times on certain nights based on the position of the moon in the sky relative to your viewing position. The moon moves a lot from night to night, so the time you’ll catch them in a given waterfall changes every night.

This year the moonbows should be the strongest they’ve been in recent years, due to the El Nino weather pattern bringing us a healthy snowpack in the Sierra Nevada. The main months to capture the moonbows are April and May, although they can continue in June in many waterfalls if their flow stays healthy. IF you’d like to try for them with me in April, I’ll be showing photographers around the park’s amazing landscape, capturing wildflowers and practicing night photography to take advantage of this rare opportunity in this particularly strong year: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/yosemite-national-park-photography-workshops/

At the end of April we should catch the end of the season for California poppies, perhaps the start of the season for dogwood trees blooming, and we may get a late spring storm to enhance sunset and sunrise, and decorate the park with a light dusting of snow. It’s one of my favorite times of the year to explore Yosemite, and you can see why in this album:

Yosemite Falls at NightMany people know of two or three places to capture moonbows at night in Yosemite, but the possibilities are nearly endless once you understand the basic geometry invovled.

At the end of April 2016 we should catch the end of the season for California poppies, perhaps the start of the season for dogwood trees blooming, and we may get a late spring storm to enhance sunset and sunrise, and decorate the park with a light dusting of snow.

Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park

A number of conditions have to be just right for Horsetail Fall to flow at all, but you also need clear skies to the west for it to also be backlit by the setting sun. It can take photographers years of trying before they arrive in Yosemite National Park before all of the right conditions occur.

I skipped over this image when I originally processed photos from this trip. I'm glad that I revisited the folder!

Bridalveil Fall Reflection

I'm having good luck re-processing some old Yosemite images from the 2002 – 2009 time frame, produced before some of the newer versions of +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I'll leave many of the older images up for comparison, so I'm putting many of the newer ones on my +Yosemite National Park Workshops page.

Bridalveil Fall in Late Summer
Bridalveil Creek is spring-fed, so it isn't as dependent on spring snowmelt as some of the other waterfalls in Yosemite Valley, but its flow can still get pretty meager in dry years.

This is a re-edit of a photo I took in August 2007. I produced this new version in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 and +HDRsoft Photomatix 5 (HDR) software.

Happy Birthday National Park Service!

The National Park Service turned 98 this week.  Photo: fall colors in Yosemite National Park.  With aspen, cottonwood, bigleaf maple, oak and dogwood trees all changing color in the park, Yosemite offers a wide diversity of fall color photo opportunities, set in the backdrop of Yosemite's stunning cliffs, waterfalls and granite monoliths.  You can see more of my Yosemite fall colors photos in this album on G+: https://plus.google.com/photos/+JeffreySullivan/albums/6051985319910931345
