Brief Directions

Yosemite National Park lies in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, about three hours east of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Notes

The deep canyon of Yosemite Valley creates a lot of shadows, and the moving sun spotlights subjects in the forest on the Valley floor. Arriving at locations at different times provides endless variations for using spotlighting or silhouetting to emphasize your subjects.

Description

Various stretches of the Merced River receive spectacular light, if you catch them at just the right time of day, when the sun shines down the river, back and side-lighting fall foliage.
