On our vacation to SFO, we made the must-have stop at Yosemite. Although I’m not much of an Ansel Adams fanboy, I couldn’t help but snag a few shots of the renown and famous Half Dome. I’ve spent my entire life on the east coast and have never truly witnessed surreal nature. This experience was just that. Studying Adams and his work in Yosemite in history of photography class, I could have never fully appreciated his work until this visit to the park. I’m incredibly lucky for the following images that I shot. Lighting was on my side and so was the wildlife! My only regret is that I brought along my D7000 instead of my D700. I wanted something light and cheap! Really wish I had my D4 at the time!
All pictures taken with Nikon D7000 and Nikon 16-35 f4 lens.
Enjoy these photographs of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park!
This picture of Half Dome occurred moments before sunset, allowing just the right amount of light to highlight the dome. Photographed with 16-35mm(at 16mm) @ f4.0
