Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 8:35 pm Hi YC, I’m happy you like this one– thank you. I thought the path leading to the hikers in the morning sun made a compelling composition and well, El Capitan helped :). It was a beautiful moment. I really appreciate your comment. Reply ↓ Jessica June 18, 2019 • 3:40 pm Wow! New here, had to comment. So beautiful. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 5:52 pm Hi Jessica, Welcome, and thanks so much! I’m happy you like the image- I really appreciate it. 🙂 Reply ↓ Linda Wyatt June 18, 2019 • 2:34 pm A beautiful post… Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 2:50 pm Thanks very much, Linda. I hope you’ve experienced Yosemite… a favorite park. 😊 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold June 18, 2019 • 2:31 pm Very nice and the starburst adds a special feel as they set off for a day of hiking. Reminds me of my one time to California which included a short stay at Yosemite. If I ever set foot in a metal tube at 35,000 feet once more it will be to visit there again. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 5:49 pm Thank you, Steve. It was a serene and wonderful morning- I hope you do get there again soon. 🙂 Appreciate your nice comment. Reply ↓ paula graham June 18, 2019 • 2:12 pm Works so well in Mono and I am such a sucker for sunbursts..you just cannot beat one! Truly beautiful photo to caress the senses. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 5:51 pm Thanks, Paula. Me, too, and I managed to get my aperture right to get it. I’m so glad you enjoyed this image…it was a memorable nature-filled morning. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Iwan June 18, 2019 • 1:05 pm Congratulations on yet another monochromia post. It’s a beautiful shot. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 1:39 pm Thank you, Jane. I was asked to be a weekly contributor this past month which has been fun. Pleased you enjoyed this Yosemite image– great memories. Reply ↓ Poetpas June 18, 2019 • 9:46 am Great picture! I love black n white Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 12:26 pm Thank you, Poetpas. Me, too! I thought this image worked well in B&W. Pleased you enjoyed it. 🙂 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters June 18, 2019 • 9:42 am Beautiful shot, Jane. CA has so much beauty. ❤ Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 12:23 pm Thank you, Eliza. It’s a big state with great diversity and natural beauty. I’m pleased you enjoyed this shot in one of my favorite parks. 😍 Reply ↓ smilecalm June 18, 2019 • 8:33 am wonderfully detailed morning paradise 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 12:22 pm Thank you very much, David. It truly is a paradise. So glad you like this image. 🙂 Reply ↓ Rebecca Latson Photography June 18, 2019 • 7:44 am I think monochrome works so much better than color would, for this image, because it does a much better job at silhouetting the hikers on the trail – I spot them better and they make more of an impression upon me. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 8:27 am Hi Rebecca, Thank you so much for your terrific comment. It means a lot coming from your experienced eye. Monochrome does make us see better in many ways, doesn’t it? I’m pleased you enjoyed this memorable Yosemite moment. 🙂 Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra June 18, 2019 • 7:42 am What a nice way to start the day. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 12:29 pm Thanks, Allan. For you and the hikers. 🙂 Reply ↓ Michael Scandling June 18, 2019 • 6:57 am I have many standards as to what, for me, makes an evocative photograph. One of them is to evoke a feeling in me of wanting to be there. I want to be there. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 12:31 pm What a wonderful compliment, Michael. I hope to transport the viewer with an image. That means a lot, thank you. Reply ↓ pattimoed June 18, 2019 • 6:44 am I love your “long” perspective here, Jane. Lovely shot! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 6:46 am Thanks so much, Patti. That early morning sun created some great effects. Happy you like this one. 😊 Reply ↓ pattimoed June 18, 2019 • 6:50 am Yes, I do! Have a great week, too. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 18, 2019 • 12:31 pm You, too! 🙂 Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
