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.
Happy April 1st – Creative Debt
Shhhh…don’t tell anyone else about it! Happy first day of April! ????
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.
