The Horsetail event is a clusterfvck that needed to be wrangled so I kind of get it.

As far as I know... All federal land requires a permit if you plan to sell any photo of anything - the point being you can take pictures to remember your trip but you aren't supposed to make money off them without ponying up.

Trying to enforce this rule is impossible BTW. We made a feeble attempt up at Schulman Grove last year- it was totally futile.
The FS doesn't have the means to go after everyone who has non-permitted pictures for sale online.

what does it cost guidebook authors to get this permission?

They have to pay Starbucks big bucks since they are now in Yosemite.

If they don't pay, they get sent to Siberia Gulag because Trump is friends with the Putinator.

The world is not same anymore ......

When photographs of public lands are outlawed,

THEN

Photographers will be outlaws.

&

I'll only give up my right to photograph public lands

AFTER

You sue, or shoot me, & pry my camera from my cold dead hands.

Wasn't their an incident decades ago where a camera was confiscated when a party topped out on El Cap, trying to catch shots taken for sponsors.
