A great companion when visiting Yosemite C. Hopper This book has beautiful photographs that well illustrate what is possible when attempting to capture Yosemite's splendor. The size is really nice. Easy to throw in your day pack and take along on an excursion.The discussions on photographic technique are short and to the point. There is just enough information to get an understanding of what the latest digital camera equipment is capable of and how to achieve it without getting overly technical.Mr. Davis has obviously spent a lot of time in Yosemite at numerous locations and in a variety of weather conditions. There are great descriptions on how to find photographic vantage . Newbie's only M. Cooper This book was a big disappointment for me. I know quit a bit about certain areas of the Sierra (Sequoia/Kings Canyon) and not much about other areas, so I can only speak to the areas I know. If the rest of the book is comparable to the sections on Seq/Kings then this book is almost completely worthless. Unlike other, more useful photography guides, this book does not offer any technical details about the photographs that are featured, and it doesn't offer any technical advice about best times of day, vantage points, or times of year to visit specific locations. In fact if there was one thing that sums up this book it would b. A lot of pictures. Not enough depth on either location! Gordon H. Ripley This book was so-so in my mind. There are a lot of pictures but I had a hard time relating the discussion to where exactly they were referring to on the map. I'd need more information before I travel to Yosemite on a photography trip and will be doing more research as this book didn't have enough "meat" in it for me. It should have covered Yosemite in more detail and left out the High Sierra or vice versa.
