Tuolumne Story Telling
There is so much to celebrate in life and being in nature continually reminds me of that. Photographing nature is a lot like writing non-fiction stories, where they require no embellishment but still require creative prose and perspectives. Otherwise, stories can be too linear or bland or come across as boring. The story of this scene set deep in the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne in #yosemitenationalpark could have been told from the river bank or the mountain top but those perspectives felt too static. The star of this show was the purity and movement of the crystal clear water. To take this shot I rock hopped into the center of the river, set the tripod as low as possible and used a polarizing filter and long exposure to expose the rocks below the surface. The result is a dynamic, refreshing and grander story, one that expresses the feelings I had while being here.
