Yosemite Valley, Old Recovered Photos

So I actually took these photos a couple of years ago on my old d3400. All of those photos ended up being killed in a hard drive failure, BUT I just recently went back through the photos on my phone, and turns out my d3400 had auto synced some of my camera photos to my iphone. Lucky day!

Anyways, here's a couple of compositions that struck me pretty well. A storm had just passed us on the 3 mile hike straight up the side of the valley. This was actually one of my very first photography trips.

What do you think?

Backups are a good thing.

Learned that the hardway unfortunately. Also now I only use an SSD on my desktop

Years ago, listening to Leo LaPorte, I learned that I should have three (3) copies of everything. My working copy (the original), a local backup (I use Acronis True Image 2020 software daily to an external Seagate 4TB hard drive since SSDs that big are mucho dinero), and an off-site backup (I use Carbonite, which updates over the Internet continuously.) That way I am covered even if my house were to burn down and be destroyed.

It's great having that surity. I need to look into a service; right now I'm using google drive but I still have to manually upload all of my photos which is a pain sometimes.

Both are beautiful but the top one is stellar. Glad you didn't lose them!

My favorite is the first picture. Two cheers for the backup!

The first one is incredible. I love the white flowers in the foreground, the distant rain, and the feeling of depth with the river and cascading layers leading you in to the distance.

I hope you're backing up your photos now! I'd be sad to lose these if I were you.

Thanks so much Yuriy! I am trying to back up all that I can. Don't want to go through the heartbreak of losing photos again. I had some great shots of Rainier that are gone now lol

Hi Trevor. I liked the clarity of concept in second image. both trees complement the focal element of water fall.
thanks.
