It is that time again where we start the year fresh and try our best to not break our new year resolution. I am part of the bunch that usually breaks them through procrastination and lack of discipline. My new year resolution is to…not break my new year resolutions! One of my resolutions is to stop and enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation. After a crazy 2013 and my last wedding of the year, I decided to pack up my camera and drive to Yosemite! The irony of leaving my work behind in this short vacation and I still brought my camera. I suppose my camera brings some sort of peace. During my stay at Yosemite, I took up a few hiking trails that were open at the time and lugged my camera and tripod up the mountain. One of the more satisfying photos from that trip was star photography up on top of the mountain. I was not sure if it was a good or bad idea since the temperature dropped drastically and the entire forest was pitch black. I was not even able to see 5 feet in front of me after sunset! Once the stars blanketed the sky, it made my wait up in the mountains worthwhile. Check out the quick preview of my experimentation on landscape photography!
Yosemite National Park
I hope you all enjoyed this quick preview of my trip in Yosemite! Unfortunately, the snow was not melted so the waterfalls were rather small. Hopefully, I can make another trip out here during Spring to see the waterfalls at full blast! Happy 2014 everyone.
