  • This is a truly incredible book. Anyone planning a trip to Yosemite for photography should have this in their bag. I used it extensively to plan my extremely short, 3 day trip to Yosemite this past July. It allowed me to pick and choose which destinations to visit and at what time. Without this book I wouldn’t have come home with the images I was able to capture.

  • Agreed with everything in the article and the previous comment.

  • We used this book on our June 2006 trip. I planned each day using the suggestions as far as time of year / time of day for each location. The author was right on!

    In fact, we were the only ones at Cathedral Beach two mornings in a row photographing El Cap’s reflection in the Merced at sunrise. A very pleasure shoot.

    Funny thing actually occurred there. My photography partner found someone’s photography notes with the exact same reference numbers that are used in this book. So, we weren’t the only ones using the book for a reference.

    After getting back and discussing the trip, we agreed that one should spend at least two late afternoon / sunrises at Glacier Point. That view is hard to beat and with the right clouds or lighting it is a premo spot in the park. Especially for someone not wanting to get off trail.

    Here is a web site that I put together from our trip:

    You may have to copy / page link in the address field.

    In closing, this is a must have book for any first timer to Yosemite.
