OK, OK, I know you people want more sports but humor me for a minute here and have a look at some nice landscape shots I took. I don’t claim to be Ansel Adams or G. Dan Mitchel or even uncle ralph with a point and shoot camera and I still feel like I’m learning how to shoot landscapes well, but I think I’m getting a little better with my landscapes so here are a few for you to look at.
All of these shots were taken in Yosemite National Park, Tuolumne Meadows area on a single day visit. Now I know that shooting in the harsh mid-day sun will most likely not result in very good photos, but I did my best with the light I had.

Some shots are from later in the day when the shadows are starting to get a bit longer, but still not the golden hour.
I was working on getting more depth in my shots by keeping something in the foreground that will draw the viewer into the scene.
Like some nice rocks and a river . . .
A bit of a “small animal’s perspective” shot.
More rocks in the foreground for interest.
How about some nice clouds reflected in the water?
I also tried to get a good mix of vertical and horizontal shots.
I also tried changing focus from foreground to background with similar shots to see what effect it would give.
I tried framing the shot differently to see if I could come up with better shots.
OK, enough with the landscapes now it’s time to toss in some of those real bits of nature I talked about.
Ah, yes the bugs have it.
I loves me some rocks.
