Dogwoods at sunset along Highway 120, Sunday evening

I’m teaching my Digital Landscape Photography workshop right now, but wanted to let you all know that the autumn color is looking better every day in Yosemite Valley. It might be a good year—though a late one—with the oaks, maples, dogwoods, and cottonwoods all turning at about the same. The color isn’t at peak yet, but should look very good overall by this weekend, and even better the following week.

I made this image outside of Yosemite Valley along Highway 120 a few days ago. The dogwoods at this higher elevation are beautiful right now. I haven’t been to the Tuolumne Grove, but there should be great color there too.
