Yosemite National Park embraces a great tract of scenic wildlands set aside in 1890 to preserve a portion of the Sierra Nevada that stretches along California's eastern flank. Ranging from 2,000 feet above sea level to more than 13,000 feet, the park encompasses alpine wilderness, groves of giant sequoia trees, and Yosemite Valley. All of these photographs were taken in or around the Yosemite Valley area. As one of the most photographed scenic areas in the world, I strived to bring a unique angle of view, dramatic light, and/or rare seasonal events to my images honoring this natural icon.
