Yosemite – A Sense of Scale
Bookmark and Share

One of the hardest things to portray in Yosemite National Park is the sense of scale of the whole place especially when photographing the landscape, one of the best ways to display a sense of scale in landscape photography is to include something that we can relate to such as a building or people. It was not until i came to convert my raw images that I realised that in a couple of the images were people, that really put the Yosemite landscape into perspective. The image above contains one person who was out at daybreak (At this time of day the whole park was deserted in principal due to the overnight snowfall), had they been closer to me then it would not have conveyed the same sense of scale of the trees and mountains in this image. See if you can spot the single person in this image before scrolling down.

Again in this image of Lower Yosemite falls, there is a person in the image, this one is even harder to spot, people who I have shown this image to have been totally unable to spot the person even though they are wearing a bright red raincoat.

Scroll down to see where the people are and truely appreciate how absolutely massive this landscape really is.
