Thanks for the feedback!
Iíll check out the book Michael. Is this more of a general tour guide,or is it more oriented towards photographers?
nice pics Chris. i did make a brief trip to the bay area back in the winter of 98'. Had 4 days, out of which it was pouring hard for 2 1/d days, so i'm hoping weather will be better in august.
Lisa, I generally like to fill as much of the day with photography as possible Ė mainly try shoot from dawn to around 3 hours after dawn, and then take a nap in the afternoon, before getting back to shooting from late afternoon till after sunset. But, after getting married Iíve had to make some adjustments. My wife doesnít share my enthusiasm for photography.
I leave about an hour from Banff, and my wife still canít understand my need to go to the same lakes over and over searching for the perfect lighting conditions.
So on this trip, Iím trying to leave two days just for sight seeing and shopping in SF. Although Iíll probably still have the camera Ė just in case.
If it was up to me Iíd spend at least five days in Yosemite, but with another trip planned to the southwest in late September/early October (slot canyons/the wave, Grand tetons, moab), which will be more photo heavy, Iím trying to balance this trip with at least 30% non-photo related excursions. That being said, will 2 or 3 days in the monerey/big sur be enough time to still get enough sunrise/sunset time?
