Yosemite Valley remains an intense visual experience for me.
- I only know it, as a photographer, from annual short visits each May, 2009-2012: with high water in the Merced, Tenaya and the falls; spring green in the meadows, elms and oaks. Even then, amid the drama, so much subtlely in the detail.
- Nearly all of my photography was experienced at dawn or evening light, away from the harsh mid-day light and the crush of visitors.
