As a kid I dreamed of visiting two places.  The Serengeti in Africa and Yosemite National Park in California.  In early 2008 half of that dream was realised when I roamed the plains of the Serengeti armed with a camera in search of Lions and other animals.  I had actually been to California in 2004, the tail end of a 7 month round the world trip, but missed the opportunity to visit Yosemite much to my disappointment.  9 years later I arrived and it was as promised.  One of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet.  I can understand why the American’s are so proud of their national parks and fought so hard to have them protected in the early days.  We stayed in the Yosemite Valley as most people do.  Surrounded my massive granite walls, one can’t help but feel very tiny and totally at natures mercy.  This series of images show the Yosemite Valley, Half Dome (maybe the most photographed rock in the world), Camp Curry, The Meadows, The Mist Trail including Vernal Falls & Nevada Falls as well as the big one – Yosemite Falls.  We spent 3 days there and it was 3 days in nature I’d do over and over again.
