"The Tuolumne River" TR 24-28 June 10

Postby maverick » Mon Jul 12, 2010 4:51 pm

Last year I remarked that we do not give rivers there ample respect as
photographers, well I made this trip all about the upper Tuolumne River.
Those of you who have visited the area from Tuolumne Meadows down to
Waterwheel Falls know how beautiful this area is.
My first night was up in the Wildcat Lookout area which gave my a gorgeous
overview of the river from above, and I picked this day because rain, and clouds
were in the forecast, which I got plenty of both, but I also got some of the most
vibrant colors I have yet seen (who needs Velvia).
Thanks for leaving some of the boulders up top Russ they made for some cool
foregrounds in my pic's.
The next two days were spent near Waterwheel Falls were I followed the bank
of the river all the way to LeConte which gets pretty bushy as you get closer to
the falls, but the shot taken at the bottom of LeConte in the woods made it all
worth it.
Waterwheel and LeConte put on a spectacular show at day, and at night!
The last night I stayed at Glen Aulin, and focused in on Tuolumne Falls and
its beautiful rainbow.
It was a great trip, with no skeetrz, no bears, and met some great families.
Here are the pic's, click on the first pic, and it will be enlarged with the others
next to it. http://maverick.zenfolio.com/p61847790
They are posted in a lower resolution, and samller photo's then usual, which makes for
faster uploading, and no need for the ugly copyright in the photo.
All photo's are for sale in sizes 16x24, 24X36, and some larger, if you are interested
in purchasing drop a PM.

You got some great pictures mavrick! :thumbsup:

No backpacking trips for me yet, but I'm going car camping with a friend (and his brother/sister) at Lone Pine CG in two weeks.

Great pics. I particularly like the moon glow pics, and the one with the stars. The pic of waterwheel falls with the "other photographer" is good as well, because it gives the falls perspective. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Tom.
I got up at 12:30 am, and was up till 2:30 am messing around both days, it is such
a different world at that time.

Dang, it just brings up an empty gallery when I click on the link. Do you have to be logged in in order to view photographs on Zenfolio?

Photo Album is unlocked for those of you who have been PM-ing me, will be open till
the 22nd for viewing.
Reminder, do not try to view these in slideshow mode because they are at very low
resolution, just click on the first pic, and go from there.
