Photography Tours Yosemite National Park: Waterfalls You Have To Capture

Photography tours Yosemite National Park will often fully demonstrate the true scope of beauty that is contained within this stunning park. If you are a landscape photographer, Yosemite is the stuff of dreams. A big part of the park's appeal is the multiple appearances of waterfalls.

Yosemite National Park is home to many waterfalls and ephemeral falls that range from the star attraction of Yosemite Falls (2,425 ft), Snow Creek Falls (2,140 ft) and Horsetail Falls (2,100 ft) to the relatively tiny Three Chute Falls (80 ft) and Quaking Aspen Falls (25 feet). Each of these falls offer completely unique opportunities to play with light and create a diverse portfolio of photography. Despite not being the longest or shortest waterfalls in the park, both Nevada and Vernal Falls are said to be two of the most beautiful to photograph. The Vernal Falls offer a contrast of rugged rocks with beautiful flowing water – often complemented by a small rainbow from the right position. For photography tours that take in the waterfalls such as the Vernal Falls, then Nevada Falls are likely to be the next stop. On your trek, you'll also see the lovely, shallow Emerald Pool which acts as the 'step' between the two. It is colored a deep green – thanks to the algae which live on the rocks within the pool. However, these are just a few of the many photogenic sites located within Yosemite National Park, so it can be worthwhile to research guided travel photography tours fully, in order to take in as much of this incredibly beautiful park as you can.
