Yosemite National Park Photography

Yosemite National Park is located east of San Francisco in California, United States of America. Yosemite spans across some 761,268 acres comprising amazing landscapes and many curious species of wildlife. It is where landscape photographers are born! Having Ansel Adams trekking the park for his entire life throughout the twentieth century bringing Yosemite to the cities of America with his photography, while spreading awareness to conserve this rich pocket of earth. Yosemite has spanned across more than just a few hundred thousands acres over the past decades, drawing in almost four million visitors a year! So, I hope you find these photographs inspiring and a reminder to you that photography is a unique medium with more than just creativity to show, but also a powerful tool in seeking awareness for a cause, as in the case of Ansel Adams.
