Yosemite National Park Fine Art Photography

a place to get lost for a few days

I am very impressed with the beauty of this park. Firstly, I love such living landscapes with a variety of natural objects. Secondly, mountain landscapes always fascinate me. Perhaps this place is not as unique as the Grand Canyon, but a trip here will not leave you indifferent. There are many representatives of flora and fauna in the park, including the greatest Sequoias. One day is certainly not enough here - during this time it is difficult to see everything and at the same time have time to enjoy the beauty and unity with nature. As elsewhere in the United States, nature is served in Yosemite with comfort - routes are laid to the main places, there are free parking lots, tourist centers, and hotels. There are also wild routes for the prepared. But for this you need to obtain special permits and register. After visiting national parks, you understand why many US residents do not want to travel outside their country, because it is so easy to travel here and see all this local beauty. Undoubtedly one of the best parks is Yosemite, which I highly recommend! Yosemite Park is best viewed from May to October. In June, there are still not as many people here as during the peak season - July and August. September is a convenient month for those who do not like to walk in the heat, and in October at night, the weather in Yosemite is already chilly. If you do not plan to put chains on the wheels of the car to go skiing, then from November to March you should not go to Yosemite as there is snow at this time. In April it melts and the waterfalls become full-flowing, but sometimes natural disasters and even flooding happen.

If any of you has visited Yosemite National Park, then you are aware of how majestic this location is. Many people visit this place every year. Thus, among these hundreds of tourists, there are many photographers. I know you have seen many Yosemite National Park photographs. But it's a fact that there is a difference between a professional and a beginner's artwork. Yosemite National Park is situated in California and is around a three-hour drive away from San Francisco. However, it is a vast landscape that covers almost 1,100 square miles. Moreover, its boundaries match with the Sierra Nevada mountain chain. Glacier Point is a beautiful viewpoint located south of the Yosemite Valley. From here you can see many iconic places of Yosemite - such as the Half Dome right in the middle, as if on an outstretched arm. The main thing is to arrive in the morning, as early as possible. Since the place is popular, it is not crowded here closer to 10-11 o'clock. Parking lots are packed everywhere, on all trailheads. The main rule of Glacier Point is to be on time for everything early in the morning! Although the sun will rise just because of the Half Dome from the east.

The Yosemite Valley is the most scenic glacial valley situated in the heart of Yosemite National Park, surrounded by granite cliffs such as El Capitan and Half Dome. The river Merced flows along the bottom of the Valley and pines also grow. The Valley is 12 km long. There are roads and hiking trails along its entire length. In general, this is the main attraction and center of civilization in Yosemite, which all tourists must come to see. In my opinion, it is best to get to know Yosemite Valley gradually. So it will better open up to you with all its facets. My limited and open edition, Yosemite Park photography collection, is filled with iconic and beautiful landscapes. There were many iconic landmarks like the Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, and Bridalveil Fall. I don't think there is any better shot that represents the combination of greenery and waterfalls. Moreover, many photographers visit this place. Due to the breathtaking views, the area attracts so many photographers. Thus, every individual strives to take the best shots. Sometimes they keep those shots for themselves, but sometimes you can find those in the American Southwest National Parks photo collections. Yosemite National Park has many unique views, trails and natural beauty. So, I found all of this worth capturing. In my eyes, there wasn't any more beautiful sight than capturing spring flowers along the bank of the river and lake.
