Yosemite Photographers

Photographers - Yosemite  2013
Photographers - Yosemite  1991

The sound of rain on the tent has always seemed quite restful. At Mike's campsite near El Portal it rained during the night but stopped by morning. He got up around 5:15 AM, made coffee, performed his ablutions and set off in the truck, driving from El Portal to the famous Tunnel View. As he expected, the view point was already populated with photographers with their large Canon and Nikon DSLRs screwed tightly onto tripods, tweaking and retweaking their camera settings.

Much the same as Mike found it in 1991! Only then the cameras of choice were medium-format and 4x5 view cameras.
