Forest Autumn, Yosemite

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 21 November 2011 in Plant & Nature.

Yosemite's fall color may not rival New England's, but it's vastly underrated. Another plus about photographing Yosemite in autumn is that it's less crowded, making exploring for shots like this much more peaceful than most of the year. Here are a few more thoughts on this scene.

A magnificent capture of light at just a fantastic moment where the branches are dark but the leaves are backlit to an exquisite point...just brilliant Gary!! Our leaves pretty much looked like this back here this reay - lots of rust and gold and yellow...not a lot of reds really...Being from the wet, give me the west any time...I love the seasons back here, but sorely iss my western deserts, oceans, and mountains just terribly! May I wish you a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving, Gary....All the best - Denny J

The light here is wonderful, Gary! You caught it just right! Hasn't our fall been just so beyond anything I can remember? The trees are on fire!
