Both professional and amateur photographers have long recognized that Yosemite National Park produces breathtaking photos. From incredible natural scenery to amazing wildlife, the camera can capture the true essence of this awesome national park. Many who make their living in photography have made it their life goal to photograph the park's ever-changing personality year after year.
If you've seen the works of world-renowned photographer Ansel Adams, then you've probably seen his breathtaking photos of Yosemite National Park. Adams, like some modern-day photographers, spent more than half a century photographing the many moods of this ever-changing park, which those with a keen eye say looks different each time they return.
But you don't have to be an Ansel Adams to enjoy photography and regardless of what kind of camera you're toting, you can certainly capture the beauty of this park, from its lakes and rivers to its peaks to the amazing array of wildlife that lives inside Yosemite.
Often, national park rangers and outside tour companies hold "photography walks and talks" for those who want to spend time snapping the best photo opportunities available at Yosemite. They are held at different times of the day so that you can catch a variety of photos with your camera. Usually, no special equipment is required.
