May Photography in Yosemite
It looks like next week in Yosemite could provide the "perfect storm" for rainbows in Yosemite.. literally! And when there's no light rain to project the rainbow colors back at us, I know when Bridalveil Fall is likely to produce a rainbow, from multiple shooting positions. I've expanded my blog post on Yosemite from May 2014 to show more of the opportunities available next week: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/2014/05/14/yosemites-lunar-rainbow-moonbows-weak-this-year/

If you can't join us this week, here are more opportunities to shoot with me in Yosemite: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/yosemite-national-park-photography-workshops/

Yosemite on an iPhone
Smartphone cameras have gotten better and better over time. Since the best camera to take any picture is the one in your hands, and smartphones are faster to get into your hands, I'm starting to regularly capture panoramas and still photos as I travel to document and communicate conditions.

Tuolumne Meadows Stormy Reflection

Encountered while scouting this year's spring conditions in Yosemite National Park, May 29. This is a 4 x 6 crop into a stitched panorama.

Several of my workshops this year will include Yosemite's high country: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/yosemite-national-park-photography-workshops/

Tioga Pass ended up opening in mid-May, so we may head up there during our workshop next week! I've already been up there to check out conditions a couple of times, and I'll probably get up there in the next few days as well:

When Will Yosemite's Tioga Pass Open in 2016?
I read somewhere that the road crews clearing Yosemite's Tioga Pass from both sides have met in the middle already. The park and counties often try to get the pass open by Memorial Day weekend, May 22-25 this year, but they also do road work before opening the road, so in heavy snow years they've been known to open the road a day after the holiday weekend, or even miss that date by a week or two or more. In the heavy snow year of 2011, I was there for the opening day of the road: June 20!

We'll have plenty to shoot in the Eastern Sierra for the June 2-4 workshop before the June 4-5 Bodie night and interior workshop, especially with rain in the past few days watering emerging wildflowers, but if Tioga Pass does open, we could have some really cool snowy landscape and lake iceout conditions to shoot.

I'm expecting a particularly strong wildflower season this year in the Eastern Sierra, over Yosemite's Tioga Pass, and in the area affected by Yosemite's Rim Fire. We scheduled Yosemite/Tioga Pass and Eastern Sierra extensions to most of our Bodie dates this year for exactly that reason!

Our June 2-4 group is ony 5 so far, and the later ones are even less, so many are likely to offer participants extra attention. I prefer more intimate groups, so feel free to note any dates or opportunities that you might like to pursue. So far our permits cover Yosemite, Death Valley, the Eastern Sierra, and Bodie but we'll ikely add to the list soon for 2017, if not sooner.

Guide to Yosemite Photography
Yosemite National Park has the largest chapter in my new "Photographing California" book.  Five years in the making after decades of exploring California, I'll be signing and shipping copies in early September.  Instructions for ordering are on my blog here: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/photographing-california-travel-guidebook/

The latest volume in the series of popular photography travel books published by Laurent Martres, it covers over 300 sites in 350+ full color photographs in 320 pages.  In addition to photographs, descriptions and directions, my notes on many sites include photographic advice, seasonal or time of day considerations, and suggestions for additional nearby locations.  

It was very kind of my friends who develop the +PhotoPills app to share the news of its release!

Hiking and Backpacking in Yosemite
Getting away from the roads and crowds provides a unique perspective on Yosemite's beauty.  I've started populating an album from some of my hikes and backpacking trips in Yosemite in recent years, and I'm starting a Collection as well..

Sights Along Yosemite's Tioga Road
With the road reaching an elevation of 9850 feet, it's a great way to get a sample of the High Sierra.

Tioga Pass Wildflowers
The wildflowers were doing really well along the Tioga Pass road in late June, and they should remain strong in the High Sierra through July..
