Midnight Yoga

Yosemite National Park is a wonderful place to do many things….take pictures, rock climb, and yes….even yoga.  This shot shows a young woman performing a yoga pose near midnight in Yosemite National Park.  She is on the bank of the Merced River that runs through the Yosemite Park.  It is a big river and carries much of the mountain run off out of the park.  The lights from a near by camp site gave me just the amount of light I was needing to light the trees.  Sometimes shooting on location just works out and sometimes not…..but this time the ambient light was exactly what I was needing.  The woman is on the bank of the river in an eddie and the reflection can be seen in the water.  I love the way the sky turned out to be a deep blue, almost purple color.  The stars fill the night sky and the moon happened to be right behind the subjects head.  Giving a great rim light, and even a glowing effect to the subject.
