”Fog moving into the Yosemite valley and hugging onto the trees on an autumn evening as seen from Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park, California”
Photographers standing at tunnel view and pointing their lenses at Yosemite’s famous landmarks is something that’s predictable, but the show that nature puts on once we are there is totally unpredictable. When there are 50 other tripods at a location we have to rely on nature’s randomness and on some choice of subjects on our part to come away with some unique images.
Here, I used my long lens to capture some details in the trees when fog started rolling into the valley. Although I was at tunnel view hoping that there be some spectacular light at sunset, the thought of having no keeper shots from that shoot if the sunset failed, made me look into my long lens and pick this detail. In terms of light, it turned out to be a dull evening and hence this scene had little color. Just th green of the trees and the white of the fog. This is the reason I’ve presented this in black and white here.
