My Most Unique Photo of Yosemite Yet

Yosemite Tunnel View

After spending days researching one of my favorite photo locations on Flickr, Instagram and 500px and then tracking down the almost exact location through shared camera GPS data I drove 5 1/2 hours to capture this amazing Yosemite view that is destined to be a centerpiece of my landscape portfolio. Just when I thought I was the only person who might have thought of capturing this unique vantage point I ran into my friend Colleen Miniuk-Sperry as I was leaving. Apart from some brief small talk as I left, my friend Colleen took my spot in the photographer lineup (after all it was standing room only) to capture her own unique take of this iconic view. I highly recommend seeing her photo on her blog You Can Sleep When You’re Dead.

    Brilliant post idea, Jim. I like your second image too. While at Tunnel View a few years ago I made a similar image, but yours is better with all the cameras lined up. What fun.
