Yosemite CA Photographer | Half Dome and Yosemite Valley

Every year my family and some good friends pack up our stuff, and take along 5 hour drive up to Yosemite California. This is one of those trips that we look forward to all year long. When our trip is over, we are longing to do it again! Yosemite Valley itself, is a pretty busy place. It's buzzing with tourists, kids, and wildlife. But for me, it's a bit too crowded, so my family and I like to stay at the Wawona Campground. Wawona is about a 45 minute drive to Yosemite Valley. Not bad at all considering how beautiful the drive is.

Booking your campsite is another challenge. You only have 1 day out of the whole year to claim your stake and grab your spot! And you better be quick! If you're not ready to click the "RESERVE"button on the exact hour that it becomes available, chances are you either won't get a reservation at all, or you will not get the spot that you want. Regardless, camping in Yosemite is still our annual family tradition, and we will be trying to do it every year as long as we can.

Here are some of the photos from this year's trip. I was particularly inspired by Ansel Adams. The black and white photos of Half Dome made me want to take a stab at trying to photograph in the same style. Here's my take at Ansel Adams.
