I've used Twitter only once or twice, but they keep sending me emails encouraging me to send messages. I finally clicked on Unsubscribe. Here's the message I got in return.

"403 Forbidden: The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it."

So they got my request to unsubscribe, but they're refusing?

I marked it as Spam, so I won't have to see them any more.

Why not contact Park staff. Very likely they will have credible knowledgeablevand advice.

Thanks Dean, great idea. I was reviewing my plans late at night and the Park Services were closed. I was going to wait for a UHH reply and I will definitely contact them prior to finalizing my trip plans.

Photographing a burned up forest could result in stark and haunting landscapes. A different type of beauty.

Agree, but not my cup of tea! Thanks for your response.

That could actually make for some interesting pictures

Thanks Jim, however, that is not the type of Landscape images I am hoping for. However, appreciate your response.

The fires did not penetrate into Yosemite valley, so everthing is good. Glacier Point is open. Quickly, you need to check reservations, because last minute (April is last minute) you may be stuck with unheated tents in Curry Village. Look at availability in Coarsegold as an alternative.

Thanks rgrenaderphoto, I will check out the "Coarsegold" suggestion. I realize I might be a little late with the reservations, and that is why I was considering next year as an alternate.

I live within an hour of the South entrance into Yosemite. The fires affected some of the areas along the main highways leading into the park, as well as areas inside the park at higher elevations. (Along Highway 140 and Highway 41) Most of the well known and commonly visited areas in the park, including Yosemite Valley were untouched.

Thanks for the information, I had used Google Earth and could not really tell much. This helps.

I was in the park last August after the fires and its fine. Took some nice pictures outside the park of the burn area. Great contrast to the lush valley floor and the Merced ought to be roaring. Bring a ND and polarizing filter.

Thanks this helps with continuing my plan.

My understanding is that Yosemite was closed because the approach roads were threatened by fire, and because of the health hazards posed by the thick smoke. The fires did not reach Yosemite Valley.

Thanks, very helpful!!

I am in the process of planning my first Photography trip to Yosemite in mid April 2019 and would like to know if I should wait another year to visit. Not interested in photographing a burned up forest full of charcoal tree stumps/etc. Any information/comments will be most appreciated. Roger

It is called “Pocket Light Meter”

"Pocket Light Meter" App on my iPhone is listed at $10.99!! Not free for sure. Although the cost is not prohibitive, it might be worth looking into. Interesting to say the least.

I found a Burke and James “Watson” - Five by Seven inch - Field View camera at a local antique mall, after a friend told me about it, for fifty dollars.
After looking it over, I made the quick decision to buy it, remove the paint, and rebuild to restore to a working condition. Already having a lens with a pneumatic operated shutter (In case this lens, shown, will not work). I knew that it would not only be workable, but also practical for the design.

While I awaited the arrival of the Bellows from an overseas Bellows Maker - I made used that time to build a carrying box for the camera.

(Thus = This became my “Winter Project” for 2018.)

Here are a few photos of the progress of the endeavor.

I'm working on implementing a new format for the digest.

The old one will remain, but in addition to that we'll have the expanded format. It's basically a list of intro posts for each topic, one after another.

The new format is for people who prefer to scroll rather than scan headlines.

Here are some examples:

Please test it out send me any feedback you might have.
