“Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.”
Why You Should Shoot Yosemite in Color
As the quote goes: “always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder”. It would be damn difficult difficult to capture the golden wonder without color – at least for me. But as always I play the devil’s advocate and have to argue with myself.
Why You Should Shoot Yosemite in Black and White
As the man Mr.Adams himself has said, Yosemite is a “vast edifice of stone and space.”. Black and white brings out the texture in the stone and the cracks between the spaces. There’s certain stoic expression that is better captured through this medium.
Or maybe do both, or neither. But Go Visit Yosemite
(when you can safely do so)
I said earlier that Mr. Adams’ quote was my favorite about Yosemite. I lied. This one’s my real favorite:
“When you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about—Yosemite?”
And Will McAvoy would be god damn right.
