Sunset at 6000'

Man, what a week! My first visit to Yosemite in the Fall, and I gotta say, it was pretty fantastic. The weather was perfect, a lot fewer people, and the colors...oh the colors. The main water falls were even flowing a bit thanks to some recent snowfall in the upper elevations. Being there for a week really allowed us time to take it easy and not rush from scenic vista to scenic vista. My wife and kids were very patient in indulging my many stops to take "just a couple more pictures". All in all, just a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating time.

Picture wise, I've got lots in store. Actually, it's not just still pictures, but moving ones as well! I'm working on a few videos that I hope to have up this week. To start thing off, though, here are a couple of pictures of a sublimely spectacular sunset. How's that for alliteration!

Hi Marshall,

Nice blog and good to have met you in Yosemite. That moonrise was probably the best thing I've seen so far. Awe inspiring to say the least.

Wow, Really looking forward to seeing all your shots. I have always wanted to go in fall. The 2 pictures here are out of this world. really great work.

Ooooh, Marshall!! I'm gonna love seeing your photos!!! I think it's going to be a hoot to see how many of the same ones we took ;-).

Middle Dude and I both got this same shot. We passed it each night as we drove back to our hotel in Fish Camp.

And yes - the moon rising over Half Dome. Oh my. Spectacular. My photos don't even begin to do it justice. In fact, my photos of that particular event are pretty blech. I kept telling the mister that I needed a longer lens!!! ;-) And then I walked right over to a total stranger (something this mega-introvert NEVER does) who had a big ol' camera and a 100-400mm lens and asked if I could see his image. It was SPECTACULAR, dare I say: Ansel Adams beautiful. And I was totally in awe.
