The Valley Viewed

Yosemite National Park
California, USA

This has always been one of my favorite places to photograph the valley floor of Yosemite National Park in California. The view is stunning, and if you have ever been here you know what I mean. The first time you ever visit this location your jaw will automatically drop open and you will be overwhelmed by the shear magnificence of the place - gauranteed. 

An unexpected early spring storm came through the valley and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. And, for four days in a row we awoke to a dusting of fresh snow on everything. It was glorious. It was so fantastic I ran out of film, I photographed so much. This was the last piece of film I had and I had to make sure I got it right. I sure am glad I did at least one thing right that day. :-) 

I’ll have to learn to pace my film usage a bit better next time.

See Ya On the Trail!
