On the first evening of my latest Yosemite photo workshop I took my group to Tunnel View. I like starting at Tunnel View for several reasons. One is that it's the perfect introduction for anyone who has never been to Yosemite. It's also a good location to orient newcomers on most of Yosemite Valley's prominent landmarks. And finally, since we're all assembled in more or less the same spot, photographing variations on the same thing, it gives me an opportunity to assess the skills of my participants and get those who need it grounded in the basics.
On this evening we got a real treat--a small storm that had pass through earlier in the day was just clearing. As many know, Yosemite Valley is at its best in a clearing storm, and I was thrilled to be able to share this with my group. As a further bonus, shortly before sunset the clouds parted to reveal the moon, nearly full, rising above Leaning Tower. I don't photograph Tunnel View much anymore, but this time I just couldn't resist.
