Cottonwoods in Winter Light

Cottonwoods Winter Light 2014


Although Yosemite draws hordes of visitors every Spring and Summer, I prefer to visit in the Winter, when you can see the exposed bones of the trees and the quality of the light creates a landscape of pastel tones. I made several images like this one on an early February morning along the banks of the Merced River.

  1. Gorgeous abstract pattern and ghostly mood. Your use of slight camera movement here was and excellent artistic decision.

    1. Thanks, John. I’m having a ridiculous amount of fun playing around with some new techniques gleaned from Keith walklet. What an inspiring photographer he is, eh?
