Mirror Lake is one of my favorite locations in Yosemite National Park. In fact in the early 90’s I tookÂ a photo of this view and became entranced with nature and landscape photography. The photo I took of Mirror Lake then, is now framed and displayed in my office. It is by no means special in comparison to my current work, but it is a constant reminder of my photographic roots that keeps me grounded. I look at my first landscape photo of Mirror Lake and am instantly enveloped with the feeling of nature. Now when I visit Yosemite no matter what the conditions I visit this same location and capture the same view. I keep thinking that by doing this I’ll someday capture an even better photo of this view, but I think sentimentality runs too deep with the original for it to ever be dethroned as my favorite.
Here’s my latest of Mirror Lake taken earlier in March of 2008
