Yosemite Winter
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: K-01 Photo Location: Yosemite

Went to see the horsetail falls thing, but there was no water. Got some great photos nevertheless. I have to say, winter is really the time to go! Just beautiful and dramatic with the snow and clouds. The best part is we had the whole place to ourselves pretty much. One person in our group had been the past summer, and they commented many times when we were walking around, "you could hardly walk, this was just packed with people..."

Great light/clouds makes the shot, beautiful capture. It is nice to see a natural shot and not overly processed.

Really well done. Didn't blow out the highlight and the shadows are perfect! It is one of my favorite places....though you are giving away the secret of coming in the winter!

Like this a image a lot, well done, just love the texture in the rock face shown with that lighting.

Guess that's now another venue for the bucket list.

Yosemite is def somewhere everyone should see at least once. It's like another planet.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone! It was a beautiful day, you could practically just point your camera somewhere and take a good photo.
