Mirror Lake, Spring Afternoon
Photo By Neil Keller

  • Title: Mirror Lake, Spring Afternoon
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Yosemite National Park
  • Nearest Town: Mariposa, CA -- but that's a stretch!
  • Brief Directions: San Francisco/Bay area Distance: 195 mi / 314 km Time:4-5 hours Take I-580 east to I-205 east to Highway 120 east (Manteca) or Highway 140 east (Merced) into Yosemite National Park.
  • Notes: Yosemite provides great views all year long, but the crowds are lightest in the winter. Be sure to book accommodations well ahead of your visit. Most of my valley views were taken with 12~24mm and 18~200mm zooms and I didn't miss a long tele. A polarizer was handy to cut through any haze and to intensify colors.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: A short walk around Mirror Lake at the east end of Yosemite Valley takes you to this view. No breeze was blowing, and with strong afternoon light, good reflections were possible.
  • Gear: Nikon D80, Nikon 12~24mm and 18~200mm zooms, polarizer, Velbon tripod

    Thanks for your beautiful photos and the detailed information you provide. I'll have to make the drive up from Madison to check out these wonderful locations.
