Clearing Storm Over Yosemite Valley
Photo By Edward Mendes

  • Title: Clearing Storm Over Yosemite Valley
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Yosemite Valley
  • Nearest Town: Oakhurst
  • Brief Directions: This is a very easy and classic view to get to within Yosemite. Simply take the Hwy 41 turnoff towards Bridal Vail Falls and Glacier Point. Just up the road you'll see a tunnel and a parking lot on either side of it's entrance.
  • Notes: I made my annual spring trip to Yosemite in search of blooming Dogwoods and instead was greeted by a rain storm. Towards the end of the day I made my way to one of my favorite views of the valley in the hopes that the clouds would break. My prayers were answered in a very colorful and dramatic way as the setting sun put on a very impressive but short display of color.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Tunnel view is one of the classic Yosemite sights but one that as a photographer you have to have for yourself.
  • Gear: Mamiya M645, Mamiya 55mm Lens, Fuji Velvia 50 Film, Polarizing Filter, Cokin 2-Stop Grad ND Filter, Bogen Tripod and Head

    Beautiful stream/waterfall image Duane! The lighter colors in the background drew my eyes through the entire image. Must be a wonderful place to spend time photographing!
