Title: Last weekend in Yosemite and the Carrizo Plain
Post by: sierraman on April 15, 2017, 02:27:18 PM
Made it into Yosemite on Saturday then made the drive over to the Carrizo Plain on Sunday. Spring has arrived in California.

Wonderful work.  I hope to plan my first visit to Yosemite and get great conditions as you did in these shots.

Thanks everyone for your kind words. Yosemite is aways a special place and this years wildflowers are off the chart.  :)

Very Very Nice Set.

But the first is really outstanding, light, colors, and mist together.

#1 seems like an out-take of "The Lost World".

Have you considered a vertical tilt on the second to "correct" (or even partially correct) the perspective?

I finally have a week off, but I think I missed the Carrizo Plain bloom - darn!  Instead we heading out to the coast near Monterey. Nice images!

There should still be some pockets of flowers to photograph along the Carrizo Plain and on the hills in the area.  :)

just saw some images from yesterday still good for shooting. I'm going to shoot it from the air on Wednesday looks like rain Tuesday so might add some contrast to the color.

After years of sub-par rains and snow, may you have more years like this in the foreseeable future.

Apparently this year is/has been so good for the CA wildflowers that you can see them from space...
