Spent a few days in Yosemite while I was in California. Cracking park though crowded. Light wasn't ideal while I was there but I tried to make the most of it. Here are a few from the California experience.

Wonderful set. Hope to get to see it some day. Love the majesty of the landscapes (and especially the light in #1) as well as the macro butterflies set against clean or soft Bokeh backgrounds, and impressed you could capture it without any sign of those crowds. The people in the foreground of the waterfall lend scale to it beautifully, and the rainbow in the spray is a fine effect. Thanks for posting.

Great photos👍 They are not the usual daytime shots
One thing, there is no bad time to be at Yosemite, as you have probably discovered.
You were at Glacier Point at dawn. That is not an easy thing to do. The photo is beautiful. Not the usual shot.
Nice early morning photo from Tunnel View. Is that Yosemite Falls? Rare seeing water in October.
Hope you post some more especially at Glacier Point. Your Glacier Point photo is my favorite

Beautiful landscape and butterfly pictures. I like them all, but 1, 5, 7 and the butterflies are really appealing to me. Very well done.   It's been almost three decades since I last visited Yosemite. Thanks for capturing the beauty of the place (and so very well).

Great set - and hard to single out a favorite. But i also think that #7 is very special: wonderful mood and light in it!

Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic set #3 is my favourite as the composition is so good but all are deserving of being featured in this weeks exhibition. Very well done.

Amazing set

those butterflies have stunning colors and the landscape look like it was taken somewhere in the alps and not on the other side of the globe

Great set, Chris - you've done the park and it's environs real justice with this set.

I've visited Yosemite (once; many years ago) and this brings back many happy memories; the sunrise and early evening images especially have an air of tranquility about them that is entirely appropriate to the view you show us, and I think you've managed to get the balance between exposure, highlights and shadows just about right in them all.

I think I'm most taken with #'s 2, 5 and 6 for the subtlety of the hues and tones in these, #2 especially so for me and combined with the river reflections it is a special image for me. #1 is close but the shadows are a little too dark (though I recognise the time of day and deep shadows the terrain casts there)

Of the others, #3 shows us a great lead-in whilst #4 definitely shows us the grandeur of the place and a super rainbow. #7 is, I believe, the famous Ansel Adams 'Mirror Lake' location which will never be repeated again - the NP park management ethos is that this is natural slitting and that it is to be allowed to occur, so I have an image close to but less silted up than yours from 17 years ago!

Finally, you give us a great splash of colour with the butterfly images - good choice of DoF and selective focussing working out well for you here.

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

Thanks everyone. Coast I recognize this as your backyard and you are very lucky. Micheal the whole park is amazing. And finally Owen I thank you for the critique and I agree with your line of thinking. I try to keep my post processing as close to natural as possible.
