My favourite photographer is the late Galen Rowell, whose books (especially The Inner Game of Outdoor Photography, sadly out of print for UK readers) were my inspiration for returning to photography as an adult. My favourite Galen Rowell photograph is “Last Light At Horsetail Falls” – I have a numbered print of it on the wall at home. It epitomises his approach of visualising the photograph you want to make and putting yourself in the place where you will be able to create the image you have visualised.
So I was thrilled to discover that the US National Park Service, as part of their excellent series of Yosemite videos, has create eight delightful minutes about the natural phenomenon Rowell was able to represent. It makes me realise I have still never made a winter visit to Yosemite; I really need to do that.
