National park photo ops: Long exposure yields stunning images of Yosemite’s waterfalls and clouds
The full moon in Yosemite is a great time for photographers to go out and play. This 30-second exposure shows how bright the full moon can be, with every detail in the rocks and waterfalls coming into focus. The ISO was set at 640 and the long exposure meant the moving clouds were rendered as streaks of white, with the stars beginning to shine.
In honor of this year’s National Park Service centennial, the Travel section is posting 100 park travel ideas and tips based on trips staff travel writer Christopher Reynolds has taken, along with photo-op advice from Times photographer Mark Boster. We’ll post one per day through Dec. 31.
