Yosemite Winter 2011

Winter in Yosemite began with a blast of cold air and plenty of snow. These are my first images of the year taken in January. The short days and low angle of the light is a welcome change from summer's blazing bright glare.

Yosemite Falls on a chilly winter morning. I can't remember if it was 9 AM or 10 AM.

I made this photograph of Half Dome by blending two differently exposed images, a darker top and a lighter bottom. I like the way I have kept detail in the snow covered foreground. 

This year I skied into the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias but there are also white firs.
