Over this past summer, I decided to go to Yosemite but not go see the Valley Floor or some of the other more visited sites of the park. Instead, I took a couple of hiking trips into the parks northern interior to grab some images of places that people don't see much of. Each hike was both exhilerating and hard but worth the hike when I finally arrived to my final destination. If I may, I'd encourage anyone who can to get outside of the popular areas and trails of Yosemite and explore the hiking trails (when they are open in the summer) in the north end of the park to see some of these really neat places. Many of them are open with few people and open for great landscape opportunities. I hope you enjoy and as always, any C&C is appreciated.

God Bless,
David

Wow, David!!!! Some of the best results I´ve seen from the charming "old" film cameras! I can see why you keep your F4, FM and F5... Your are tempting me my friend - sometimes, I find myself watching for a second hand F5. However, I suspect that people owning them are wise enough not to sell it so easily...
Now, your work and B&W skills - it´s not the first time that I feel the need to comment on your fabolous B&W skills. Actually, I am always pleased with the way you managed to bring out the "gray´s" and the textures!
Again, nicely done!

Thanks Rui. It was great being able to shoot with film again. I liked waiting for what the negatives would produce. It was a great mystery. Get an F5 Rui. You'll love it. As for the b&w, I am glad you like the conversions. My hope was that the tones of light would talk. I think I was able to achieve that.

These are some wonderful shots. I love Yosemit & would love to get back there.
Thanks. Yosemite is a wonderful place. I enjoy each trip there.

Magical ! Love the grain ! #3 and 4 are my favs
Thanks RFC. Those are my favorites as well. I love the grain in these too.

I like the one of the lake. Nice work
Thank you. I am glad you like these images.

Hi David,
stunning pictures! I love the contrasts, the composition and your bw conversions!
Thanks Markus. These were fun to take and process through.

God Bless,
David
