I saw this deserted boat past summer time but completely forgot about it right until I saw latest photographs of it by Katherine Gendreau Photography. I went out to it Sunday night for the duration of the early hours of the Lyrid Meteor Shower. I did not see any meteors, but if you glimpse seriously near you will find a tiny spec of a meteor trail among the masts of the boat.

And this photo is in the 2010 character Conservancy calendar for November:…


In this article is a 30-2nd slice of the heritage of Yosemite’s glacier-formed and temperature eroded Fifty percent Dome. As I watched the clouds streak by, I could actually envision how this spot was formed about the eons. No HDR.

See the 1200 pixel variation!…

Configurations and many others.:

Canon 5D Mark II
Canon seventeen-40L @ 19 (really broad to get it all into the body)
30-2nd publicity @F13
Hoya ndx-four hundred 10-end filter – Pretty dark for lengthy exposures in daylight.
two hrs right before sunset when the light-weight is nonetheless on the cliff face.
LEE comfortable ND grad (100x150mm) .9 + .seventy five

No polarizer. I required reflections in the water

The clouds were being relocating promptly about the leading of Fifty percent Dome, and the light-weight looked great on the rock face. So I set on my dark filter to make a lengthy publicity. In excess of the class of 30 seconds, the clouds moved a lot and the shadows of the clouds manufactured for some great light-weight throughout the face of the cliffs. And the relocating trees and reflections softened in the reflected light-weight from higher than.

This part of The Tenaya River is termed Mirror Lake since is is usually tranquil and reflective. But the wind softened the light-weight falling on the water. The lengthy publicity displays that comfortable light-weight considerably far better than a shorter one particular which would demonstrate the frozen choppy water. In some cases a lengthy publicity feels extra practical than a shorter one particular!

I do have some pictures that are entirely reflective when the wind calmed down. The influence is placing also.

The map displays specifically in which this is. It is a 1-mile hike from the closest highway.
