Mirror Lake, Spring
Photo By Neil Keller

  • Title: Mirror Lake, Spring
  • 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 aware that between November and May (maybe even longer) the roads at the higher elevations in the park are closed due to deep snow. 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 down the trail around Mirror Lake at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley takes you to this view.
  • Gear: Nikon D80, Nikon 12~24mm and 18~200mm zooms, polarizer, Velbon tripod

    Here's a shot taken from underneath a sea turtle Nathan, that I thought you might like. I took it at Honolua Bay on Maui. A wonderful area to photograph!

    Beautiful capture of the Canyonlands Laura! Thought I recognized a few of your Southwest images here the last couple of days!

    Wonderful capture and story Nathan! Really love diving/photographing the turtles and Monk Seals when there in Hawaii!

    Beautiful image! Next time I'd almost like to see it shot without your feet in the shot, but overall I love the idea of the old school camera and framing! Cheers! Robert
