At Backcountry Journeys we are always dreaming up and putting together great new photography trips – and this one is no exception! Starting in the Spring of 2019 we will be offering both a standard and a hiker version of our brand-new Spring in Yosemite Photography Tour & Workshop. The dates for this trip are as follows:
The trip itinerary is very similar to our Yosemite Fall Colors Photography Tour & Workshop except of course that it’s “focus” is on springtime elements such as roaring waterfalls, abundant wildflowers and Yosemite’s diverse array of wildlife.
Yosemite National Park is easily one of the most dramatic and spectacular alpine landscapes in the world. From the soaring heights of El Capitan and Half-Dome to the dramatic fields of mountain wildflowers and mesmerizing waterfalls – Yosemite is really a photographer’s paradise.
Sculpted by glaciers, Yosemite Valley is one of the most dramatically beautiful alpine landscapes in the world. It’s rounded granite domes tower thousands of feet over an idyllic valley floor with rushing streams pouring into the lovely Merced River. From atop Yosemite’s lofty heights, snow melts into raging waterfalls that cascade down its solid rock faces creating a photographic tapestry like none other in the world.
The Spring in Yosemite Photography Tour aims to place you right in the action at Yosemite’s iconic spots. Rainbows, Waterfalls, Wildflowers and big, wide-open landscapes abound! We’ll be photographing Upper Yosemite Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Nevada Falls, Vernal Falls and more as we comb Yosemite Valley for photo opportunites. We’ll also photograph the big granite domes such as El Capitan, Sentinel and Half-Dome as well as many locations on the valley floor. Every good photographer knows that it’s all about the light – and our photography guides will make sure you’re in the right place at the right time during the best lighting conditions.
You will be part of a small group led by professional photographers and staying at our wonderful lodge nestled in the pines right inside the park. After a long day of hiking and photographing in Yosemite we’ll kick back at the lodge with a great meal, photo reviews, instructor presentations and probably some good laughs as well!
