    Your photos are so dreamy! When did you go to Yosemite? I have dying to go there, and it’s not too far of a drive from where we are in in Washington. We don’t want to go when there are lots of crowds though.

      We just went to Yosemite Valley and only went to the areas accessible by car or by the free shuttle – just timing 🙂 We found October to be the perfect time. Hardly any crowds, a little cold (nice for hikes) and amaaaazing sunrises (clearly)!

    Oh my god! Are all of these pics for real?! This place is so beautiful… I’ve always wanted to visit Yosemite because I watched so many documentaries about it…. well you just pushed me again to buy my flight tickets asap!

    OMG these are some of the incredible captures! We are already awed by the national parks of US and these pictures are the reason. Loved the first picture of sunrise and wondering how awe-inspiring would have been the experience. Exploring wildlife and those stunning shots of nature is definitely an indelible experience to cherish for the life.

    Oh wow! Yosemite is definitely on my list of places to visit especially after I watched a documentary about the people that climb up the sides of the mountains there! Totally awe inspiring!

    Oh my, your photos are all incredibly stunning. Yosemite has always been a dream to visit it for me, however I haven’t been to the states yet so I didn’t go yet. But as soon as I make my way over there I will have to visit!

    Your photos are absolutely stunning! You had so many opportunities to see the wildlife in Yosemite and the nature welcomes you with really beautiful light as well. Your photos made me want to visit Yosemite National Park.

    Yosemite is one of my favorite places. Your photos are stunning! Is that a bobcat in one of the photos? How lucky to get to see one.

    Those photos alone are worth the cold weather! I love the deer photos. I’ve not been back to the states but I’d love to come here and take such great photos

    Wow, it sounded cold when you were there. You were rewarded with some great photos, especially the 2 reflection photos, I love reflection photography. Great wildlife photography too, it’s images of this quality that make any trip worthwhile!

    Very beautiful pictures. In fact Yosemite and Yellowstone are the reasons I would like to visit the US.

    Beautiful pictures! Yosemite looks so beautiful in autumn. Would love to visit in low season without the crowds!
