Taken in April 2016 from the Yosemite Valley. This giant slab of granite is just west and a little north of Half Dome.
Oh, how I love long exposure photography. This one was 27 seconds long and I used my trusty iOS app, Slower Shutter that I developed to help me figure out just how long of an exposure I needed. I still ended up tweaking the exposure a little in Lightroom, but the app cuts down the amount of trial and error significantly.
We just got back from our first trip to Yosemite. In all sincerity, it is hard to describe just how amazing it is there. The scale of it all is unbelievable. You really have to see it for yourself.
This is perhaps my favorite photo from our trip. There are more coming, but for now, I wanted to share this one of Half Dome. It was taken from Washburn Point.
We were intending to go to Glacier Point, and we ultimately did, but when we came around the corner and saw this view, we immediately pulled in and jumped out.
I’ll never forget this trip. If you’re heading to Yosemite, here’s a Google map for where this was taken.
