Twosday Tuesday: Yosemite in Color

Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!

Today marks the 30th death anniversary of Ansel Adams, the influential American photographer famous for his black and white landscape photographs of the American West. Among his most prominent subjects were the majestic sights at the Yosemite National Park in California, where he spent most of his life in. In this week’s installment, we’re featuring color photographs that are reminiscent of Yosemite Valley, Thunderstorm, one of Adams’ famous photographs taken in 1945.

This snapshot was taken by blueskyandhardrock with a Yashica MAT 124G loaded with Kodak Portra 400VC.
