@YosemiteSteve (aka Steven Bumgardner from Yosemite Nature Notes) tweeted this tonight and I knew it had to be Photo Video of the Day. It’s not actually in Yosemite but you can’t help but laugh at the poor guys rotten luck of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Great video, Steven.

Today’s Photo of the Day is a beautiful shot of Upper Yosemite Fall by Kirk Kittell. I think what drew my attention to this photo was the sharpness and clarity. The clouds swirling around the rocks really give it some character. Nice work, Kirk. Photo by Kirk Kittell via Flickr.
While you all may have been scrambling to refresh CNN.com to find out more news about the South Korean climber rescued from Half Dome, Twitter was alive and buzzing with the news. It all started around 9:25AM when Theresa Ho posted first news of the rescue. @SimplyTheresa posted: Rescue has started for Korean climber caught [...]
Today’s Photo of the Day is a beautiful shot by Jon Shiu of Lower Yosemite Fall. Jon took the photo with a plastic toy camera with medium format roll film, printed in the darkroom and sepia toned.

Pam wrote in to ask me the other day, “When am I going to be able to go through Tioga Pass?” Well, not anytime soon. Tioga Pass is closed and, unless there’s some freak warm front and storm that comes through to melt all the snow, will probably be for a while. Traditionally the Park [...]
So if you only read Yosemite Blog in your email or via the RSS feed then you’ve probably been missing the discussion that’s been taking place in the comments for the picture of Half Dome that showed up in the Patterson Irrigator. Having a little free time and a desire for the truth, Tony Immoos [...]
Today’s Photo of the Day comes to us from a good friend of YB, Robert Pearce. Robert sent in this cool photo of El Cap framed by snowy trees he shot on *GASP*…dare I say it…FILM! Yes, Film. Robert took this with his Mamiya on Fuji Velvia 100f (my favorite film). As always, great stuff [...]
If you’re interested you can follow me on Twitter. There’s not a whole lot of Yosemite talk but you can always ask me questions. Mostly it’s just me being geeky. But add me, lets talk. I’m loydschutte on Twitter.
