Vernal Falls

Vernal Falls was by far the nicest waterfall in Yosemite National Park in my opinion. It is a short hike off the main road that runs through the park. Once you start getting close to the falls you have to climb a set of stairs and you start to get sprinkled with the mist from the water hitting the rocks. You can walk all the way to the top where there is a large pool of water that’s awesome for swimming in, especially after hiking around all day. I stitched two images together for this one since I don’t have a wide angle lens. I processed the photo in Photoshop CS6 with Nik Color Effex Pro.

Yosemite Valley View

I took this shot at tunnel view in Yosemite Valley National Park. This is one of the most photographed sights in all of Yosemite. This is a RAW image file that I processed in Photoshop CS6 with Nik Color Effex Pro. I hit this spot during the summer which is supposedly not the best time to go but I was able to grab a few good shots. Hope you like it.

Merced Stream

I finally got to visit Yosemite National Park in Northern California. I took this shot from a bridge that crossed over the stream that was near the bottom of Nevada Falls. This was the nicest spot I have been at in America thus far. I felt like everywhere I looked there was an opportunity for a picture. The size of the peaks like El Capitan and Half Dome where bigger that any picture I had seen. There will definitely be more photos to come. The photo picture here is actually comprised of 9 shots. 3 shots were taken for 3 different positions and -2, 0, and +2. I masked through the layers to get the best possible looking shot for each and then stitched them together to make a larger image  considering I don’t have a wide angle lens. This was processed in Photoshop CS6. I also used Nik Color Effex Pro.
