Weaving The Colors Of My World

Half Dome Vista - Yosemite National Park
News from Judith!
Several weeks ago my friend and I took a trip to Yosemite National Park for the purpose of photographing fall colors for artistic reference material. Boy did we hit the timing right! The weather was absolutely wonderful, the park was not crowded at all and the fall colors were great.
We only live about 3 ½ hours from the park, so we drove down starting out at 5 in the morning and arrived shortly before 9. We stayed and photographed our way through the park until dark, then stayed in this great hotel just outside the park, Yosemite View Lodge. The room was nice and included a small kitchenette and the food at the onsite restaurant was good. (We were too tired to cook ourselves after a long day of hiking and photographing the many great scenes of the park). If you ever want to stay outside the park at a reasonable cost, this is the place to go.
The next day we got up early and headed back into the park, got to this great spot to capture a great view of Half Dome and what was left of the Merced River from a meadow near Swinging Bridge shown in the attached image. After a morning of shooting, we then drove to Tioga Pass, found this lovely lake full of fall colors called Siesta Lake. We hiked all the way around the lake and then headed for home, stopping along the way at Mono Lake and Lundy Canyon for more beautiful fall color shots!
We were truly blessed and have lots of great photos to use as a reference for future paintings.
Now, onto Thanksgiving week and our “Black Friday Week” sale.
