About 5 weeks ago Mid-May Snow Storm in Yosemite Valley
I love Yosemite Valley with a dusting of snow after a storm in May, when you get elements of Winter and Spring mixed, as well as clouds and mist from a breaking storm. The composition isn't exactly what I'd want: while I like the branch in the sky echoing the grass int eh foreground, I don't like the pine needles hanging in front of Cathedral Rock, and the branch moved a bit, so while I prefer the HDR processing for the rest of the photo, trying to substitute in the branch from a single exposure is probably more trouble than it's worth.
 
There was a small issue when I exposed it... it was raining lightly, and a couple of drops of water landed on the lens, creating a couple of spots of rainbow-colored diffracted light on the trees on the right side. Again, it could be dealt with, but a simple spot removal cursor doesn't quite cut it, so for the moment it would take more trouble than it's worth. So while the shot looks pretty good at

About 4 weeks ago Storm Building in Yosemite Valley
I don't even recall what prompted +Lori Hibbett and I to head over Tioga Pass on this late September afternoon, but we found stunning conditions in Yosemite Valley when we arrived.

Completing my guide book to landscape photography in California from Yosemite south is keeping me pretty busy these days, but when I have a moment I'll get my Yosemite Fall workshop schedule up on my Web site: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/yosemite-national-park-photography-workshops/

About 13 weeks ago Lunar Eclipse Over Yosemite Valley South Rim
I caught the lunar eclipse behind trees high on the cliffs  of Yosemite Valley Monday night.  There are so many similar pictures of eclipses of the moon alone... I like to add something extra when I can. I chased the edge of the shadow of this ridge line for 15-20 minutes as the moon entered eclipse and turned red, moving, shooting, and moving again to place the moon by or behind the trees on the ridge.

This is a single exposure captured for 0.5 seconds at f/8, ISO 3200, but I also have brighter, bracketed exposures in case I have time to better recover the ridge line detail in +Adobe Photoshop at some future date.
Captured on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera, EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens +2x Teleconverter II.

About 6 weeks ago Yosemite Vernal Pool Reflection
These pools of snowmelt are not present every year, and they don't last long and they do form, so it's always a pleasure to run across them in a calm, picturesque state.  I've added this and several other new photos to my Yosemite print gallery on +SmugMug:

About 1 week ago Stage 2 Ignites!
This 15 second exposure starts around 4 minutes, 35 seconds into the NASA OCO-2 satellite launch last week, as the Delta's first stage cuts off and the second stage ignites:

3:01 a.m.
- T+plus 4 minutes, 39 seconds. MECO. The first stage main engine cutoff is confirmed and the spent stage has been jettisoned.
- T+plus 4 minutes, 44 seconds. The Delta's second stage has ignited! The engine is up and running.
- T+plus 4 minutes, 51 seconds. The rocket's nose cone enclosing the satellite payload has been jettisoned.

I was actually just about to reposition the camera to get the trees out of the way as OCO-2 flew towards them, and I decided to grab one quick shot including +Lori Hibbett in the foreground before I did.

I've created a new album of sequential detail photos from the launch on G+ here: https://plus.google.com/photos/+JeffreySullivan/albums/6034450980809636577
