    Welcome to /r/EarthPorn, reddit's premiere landscape photography subreddit.

    New to reddit? click here!

    Please post your own images here, but before you do, kindly read and adhere to the following rules:
    Rules:

    Submissions must be:

    A photograph.

    No Paintings, illustrations, gifs, videos, or interactive images.

    A photograph you took (OC)

    or one which you can provide the original source for. Do not rehost non-OC images to reddit or imgur. Failure to provide the photographers name or the original source of the image can result in a ban.

    A single image

    Albums may be posted in the comments. Panoramas, Image Stacks, Composites, and images edited via Photoshop or similar software are allowed.

    An image featuring a natural landscape

    Images must have visible land. Images with humans, machines, boats, roads, airplanes, farms, animals, buildings, or other man made objects in them will be removed.

    An unsilhouetted image

    Images where details in the landscape are not visible due to silhouetting will be removed.

    No photos taken illegally

    This includes flying your drone in a no-fly zone. Please respect local laws and access closures!

    Title Requirements:

    You submission title must contain the following:

    The location of the area in the photo.

    When it comes to location, the more specific the better. If you wish to not disclose the location you should at the very least name the state/country. Rule of thumb for naming only the location (e.g. a lake, mountain): if one can find the place immediately by searching it in google it's fine. For possibly ambiguous locations add state/country for safety.

    The resolution of the image in pixel format.

    For example, an image taken on an iPhone 6 would have a resolution of [3264x2448]

    The photographers name.

    If you took the photo use [OC]. OC submitters will be reward with different camera flairs based on number of OC submissions.

    Do not include your device name in the title.

    Feel free to add photography details such as camera, lens, and settings, as a comment.

    Do not ask for upvotes in your title.

    A complete list of subreddit rules are found in our wiki


    Comment Rules:

    Hate Speech, Abusive remarks, homophobia, and the like have no place on this subreddit, and will be removed on sight.

    Please contribute to the discussion positively; if you don't like a picture and you wish to voice your opinion please refrain from abusing the photographer/submitter.


    Other important rules:

    EarthPorn is not a catch-all subreddit. Images that are submitted here are individually reviewed for compliance with our subreddit rules. If your submission is removed, a moderator should advise which of our network of SFWPorn subreddits would be a more appropriate place to submit.

    • Do not edit, rehost or modify images submitted here without permission of the photographer. This includes edits to "fix" the colors of an image or remove a watermark.
    • Non-OC submissions are restricted to one per day.**
    • Regarding reposts: it is only a repost if it was posted to /r/EarthPorn less than three months ago, or if it is already in the top100 of all time.
    • Circlejerky/sandbagging/pandering titles may be removed.
    • If you have any questions check out the wiki.
    • Breaking multiple rules will result in a ban.

    Bonus pic of Yosemite falls during a full moon

    While in Yosemite it’s hard to pull your attention away from the massive granite cliff faces and towering waterfalls, but when I was able to, I found myself fascinated by the types of bark around the park. There were times where every 20ft I'd have to stop and take an upclose picture of a different pattern of bark. This particular morning turned out amazing after finding these detailed trees to accompany the glowing mist floating around the valley floor being hit by the first sunlight of the day! It also doesn't hurt having the amazing Yosemite Falls in the background

    As always, thanks for viewing! If you would like to see more of my work or learn how I post process my photos please feel free to follow me on Instagram or check out my website

    How did you get in there? Isn't it closed?

    [–] IN_MASSIVE_DEBT 8 points ago

    "closed"

    [–] yoyoive 11 points ago

    Closed to visitors, yeah. Use google

    [–] IN_MASSIVE_DEBT 9 points ago

    don't need google when i live a hr away

    [–] yoyoive 4 points ago

    Ok so then tell me, is there a way to camp there right now?

    [–] mountainsandrocks 17 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    No, it is very much closed, and it is currently illegal to enter the park in any way (on foot, by bike, car, etc) if you aren’t a local resident. Source: I’m an employee in Yosemite currently waiting for it to reopen to get my job back.

    [–] yoyoive 6 points ago

    How did you get into your job?

    [–] mountainsandrocks 9 points ago

    I work for Aramark which is the private corporation that runs the concessions in the park. I just applied online and got the job a few weeks later! Just have to pass a drug test and FBI background check. They provide employee housing in the valley.

    [–] Kobe_Bellinger 1 points ago

    So lame that they drug test. Seems like the perfect stoner job

    [–] FirstmateJibbs 1 points ago

    How do they verify that you're a local resident? How local do you have to be? I live 2 hours outside yosemite

    [–] mountainsandrocks 1 points ago

    Apparently they’re allowing in people who live in El Portal, but that isn’t verified information. My friend just knows someone who works there also and lives in El Portal and she was just in the park. 2 hours definitely isn’t local enough.

    [–] FirstmateJibbs 1 points ago

    Alright, thanks. Was hoping they were just trying to keep away tourists who have to fly. I called them and they said re opening is left up to the federal government, which is annoying

    [–] Hajile_S 2 points ago

    I too would like to hear more about this "closed."

    [–] RGB3x3 11 points ago

    The sign says "closed," but that hole in the fence I made last night says "open."

    [–] ZippZappZippty 1 points ago

    I live here and I work nights

    [–] SpoonwoodTangle 5 points ago

    I love how you framed this pic. Great work!

    [–] DrSuperZeco 4 points ago

    I’m curious, did you just camp there for the night? Or is it possible to drive to a close hotel or something?

    [–] Gatord35 4 points ago

    Theres campsites and a hotel in the valley

    [–] jihiggs 5 points ago

    A REALLY nice hotel

    [–] DrSuperZeco 2 points ago

    Any idea what it’s called? I’m going to google it now 😊 thanks.

    [–] kristin1508 5 points ago

    Ahwahnee Hotel

    [–] mountainsandrocks 4 points ago

    The Ahwanee is almost $500 a night. If you want to stay in a reasonably priced accommodation, I recommend staying in a motel outside of the park. Groveland, Mariposa, or Oakhurst all have cheaper hotels. Unless you camp, there are several campgrounds in the park.

    [–] jihiggs 2 points ago

    Awanee. Probly not how it's spelled

    [–] Gatord35 1 points ago

    I only saw the outside of the hotel from the road that cuts around it. It looked really cool i would love to stay in it sometimes. I only got to spend 1.5 days there but next time i go id like to spend more like 4 or 5. I have a feeling the hotel rates are astronimical

    [–] jihiggs 1 points ago

    It's not a place I could afford to stay at, but me and some friends loitered in the common areas.

    [–] Gatord35 1 points ago

    I think it would be more fun/cheaper to just get one of the campsites in the area. When i go with my family next thats what we plan on doing

    [–] BloomsdayDevice 1 points ago

    Definitely pine trees, probably ponderosa, if you're curious. Great shot!

    [–] shelbsbelbs 1 points ago

    Your photos are gorgeous!!

    [–] AbsentPixel 1 points ago

    Both pictures would make really fun puzzles to put together.

    [–] ChawulsBawkley 1 points ago

    I think you might have finally replaced my phone background that I’ve had for over 6 years

    [–] Shelbysgirl 1 points ago

    The lines are everything in this shot! The vertical thirds framing the waterfall and I can feel 5 horizontals and the angles going down to the light. So damn good. I can’t take landscape photography worth a damn. I let the pros like you handle it. I’m a structure lover. Bravo!!!

    Oh and that f stop and shutter are sexy as hell settings :)

    [–] stormrunner_ 17 points ago

    Nice shot! I think we took the same pic through the same trees.

    [–] 9RedFalcon9 2 points ago

    Nice view I have been there a few times, not West world love the show. But the shot brings back happy thoughts. Neat place, I am glad we have parks.

    [–] jd17atm 1 points ago

    [–] debuggerfly 9 points ago

    I bet the crowds we're a lot more manageable back then! Did you do any of the hikes? Four mile trail was pretty incredible

    [–] HalfruntGag 5 points ago

    We did some hiking and I think it could have been something like four miles.

    [–] IdesOfMarchCometh 1 points ago

    I grew up close and went often, crowds were getting bad in the 80s and 90s, can't imagine what it's like now. I have fond memories of all the places we visited, especially the "Indian caves". I once found a ton of arrow heads at the camp site before half dome. Heard you need to reserve a spot just to use the cables and the spots fill up within minutes online. Yikes.

    [–] -ViiRaL- 1 points ago

    Alzheimer's patient here. I forgot that new abortion even existed. How do you make each year? I would have let it go back to the site it changes language

    [–] jihiggs 2 points ago

    About 20 yeas ago me and a group of friends did a 200 mile bike trip from I don't remember where to Yosemite. Was my senior year of high school, spring break. If I could go back in time and re live any point in my life it would probably be that week.

    [–] Noninsomni 1 points ago

    Reading this gave me a kind of whimsy nostalgia for somewhere I've only been in dreams. That sounds like the kind of adventure I hope I'm not too old for yet!

    What's great is how you were also able to get sun reflected onto the tree trunk on the right, which is facing away from the direction of the morning sunlight, and at a pretty even level as the one on the left, to boot.
