The expansive vistas of waterfalls dropping thousands of feet down vertical granite walls are overwhelming and will frustrate any photographer trying to capture it all. Those rare moments when the perfect light falls on the breathtaking vista can be captured in Yosemite, if you have the patience to be out there in the field and ready - on an overlook under a sky of thunderheads, on a meadow when all the wildflowers are open, or on a riverbank when the color of autumn is at its peak.
