Her Majesty's Valley
Yosemite National Park, California
When visiting Yosemite National Park, it is easy to become overwhelmed by its beauty. Being surrounded by so much scenic artistry can leave a photographer feeling lost as to where the photo shoot should start!
If you should ever feel the same way, go to “Valley View”. It is, arguably, the best shooting location in Yosemite. As the name suggests, it’s an area that offers a full view of Yosemite Valley, complete with the iconic rock faces that the park is known for. It is no wonder that this spot was one of the great Ansel Adams favorite shooting locations. There’s literally hundreds of waiting compositional possibilities for the photographer with a keen eye!
For me, a simple log, grass shoots and the river placed just right in the frame was just what the image needed to compliment the magnificent background scene.
