El Capitan at sunset is one of the most spectacular views in the world, and Dewey Point offers a unique view of El Capitan and the Valley from a view you don't often see. Every time I look at Yosemite Valley I feel like it just can't be real, it's almost too perfect, and in some ways, it's truly surreal. Surreal, that word always resonated with me when I think of Yosemite.
The challenge I've always had with my photos of Yosemite is that it's hard to move your brain into that same, awe-struck, surreal-mode that it's in when your on top of a snowy cliff looking down on the valley. So I thought, if I added an element or two that just might change your perspective, maybe you can get one step closer to the feeling I had that day...
My love for Yosemite started when I was a kid and extends to an annual backpacking trip that provides for some absolutely stunning views of Yosemite from angles you don't often see.
For the last 20 years I've been taking photos, a lot of photos, like an average of more than 20 photos a day...and I always thought some day I would do something special with the top 1% of those photos.
But it isn't just the views and the photos themselves, but the art I feel I can layer on top of them. I've never really considered myself and artist, and maybe you think these all suck and agree, I'm not an artist.
What I know is, when I experience the raw beauty of nature, I feel more alive than ever. But a photo doesn't convey that, so maybe adding a little extra will help your mind refocus, take a step back, and experience the unbelievable beauty of Yosemite.
Note: may lower your heart rate, but that's a good thing!
