Yosemite in Winter

I havent been slacking off in the taking pictures department, but updating my web site has certainly suffered. Ive got images from three different trips to share with you. Ill start off with the oldest one first. Hopefully well be up to date by the end of the week.

In February I went to Yosemite with my friend Gus. We kept watching the weather and figured we had picked a perfect time as a storm was scheduled to come through the night after we got there. The storm arrived on schedule. The only problem was the temperature. It was too warm for snow in the Valley by 4-5 degrees, so we spent the next two days in the rain most of the time. Our last night it made a feeble effort to appease us by snowing a couple of inches, but not really enough for what we were looking for. To some degree or another, most photography trips are that way. You have some plans and hopes for what sort of shots you expect to get, but we are at the mercy of the weather and many other things and end up making the best of the cards were dealt. We had a good time anyway and the rains gave us time to peruse the Ansel Adams Gallery and walk through the museum visitors center and even watch the film there. After all, 3 days in a rainy paradise is still better than three days of work.

The images from this trip are posted in Yosemite Winter Feb 2010. I hope you enjoy them. As always, your comments are appreciated.
