Postcards from Yosemite

The second half of my recent California trip with my son included a few days at Yosemite National Park.

Photographically it’s practically impossible to do Yosemite justice in only two days. We spent one whole day alone trekking up to the top of Yosemite Falls and back (a distance of only seven miles but including countless switchbacks together with snow and ice to contend with).

Here are a few of my favourite images taken during our very short stay at this magnificent place.

All images taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 and predominantly a Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 lens which is my main work horse lens for this type of photography. It was the original lens I bought when I switched to Olympus nearly three years ago and has stood me in good stead ever since. For a review of this lens check out the MirrorLessons website here.

This post marks a change in the way I am linking to pictures. Previously I have always uploaded images into my WordPress blog and embedded them directly into posts. From now however my plan is to link to the images in my Flickr account. I’ve had an account with Flickr for a number of years but never really used it. Having started playing around with it again however I think the tools for managing images are pretty cool and intuitive. That coupled with the fact you get a 1000 Gb or free storage makes it pretty compelling. I also like the fact that you can click through to the image from here and get all the EXIF information on the image. It also means you have all your photographs (including ones not necessarily include in the blog post) collected together for all to see.
