Fall Color

Our government has graciously allowed us to return to OUR national parks. Despite losing valuable time to share these national treasures with the rest of the world, we were able to resume our guided tours in Yosemite National Park last week. Yosemite Valley is aglow from the dogwood-lined Merced River to the black oaks of El Capitan Meadow. Now is the time to visit. Literally, right now. Drop everything you are doing and go into Yosemite Valley to witness one of the best displays of fall colors we have seen in years. You’ll be glad you did.

All photos taken on an iPhone 5

Photographing with a camera phone was once frowned upon as a lazy way out of making an image. With advancing technology, these phones are becoming more integral in everyday “outdoor” life. I am currently using the iPhone 5 with an 8 megapixel camera, and will share the world of Yosemite through my phone.
