Yosemite, California

This is the first picture in a series taken the last weekend of January, 2001 while in Yosemite. This image with the 'Three Sisters' in the background was taken in the early morning the day after a storm that dropped about two feet of snow. 'Minolta X-700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This dead tree trunk was located near the Merced river in Yosemite Valley. 'Minolta X-700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
A little wider view of the same tree trunk as shown in the previous image reveals a view of El Capitan. 'Minolta X-700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

Focusing on the foreground reveals snow mushrooms in the stream. As you can see it was cold enough to keep the snow from melting but not cold enough to freeze the stream. 'Minolta X-700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This stone bridge is located near the entrance to Yosemite Valley. I took this shot on my way out of the park after a great weekend. 'Minolta X-700 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Late afternoon sun on Half Dome as the fog keeps changing the view. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Another morning scene in Yosemite valley. As you can see this image was taken facing the southeast with the long shadows of the early morning sun falling on the snow. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

The air was cold enough to be very dry but there must have been enough moisture in the air the night before this picture was taken to form these ice crystals. This picture was taken in Yosemite Valley on the last Sunday in January, 2001 with the air temperature at about 15 to 20F. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Here is another picture of Half Dome taken from Yosemite Valley just before sunset. The colors were spectacular! I was working frantically to catch the scene as it was changing very rapidly. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This is a picture overlooking Yosemite Valley. El Capitan on the left is half covered in the clouds, Half Dome is just peeking through and Bridalveil falls on the right was flowing so lightly that it cannot be seen. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Yosemite is such a beautiful place just about everywhere you turn you can find great photographic subjects. This scene was found near the base of Bridalveil falls. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

Here is a picture of Cathedral Rocks in mid-morning. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This view of Royal Arches was taken at the same time as photo of Half Dome. This was very late in the day and conditions were changing very rapidly. The clouds, the fog and the light all added to the excitement of frantically working the scene before it was lost to the night. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
This picture of Lower Yosemite Falls was taken just before sunset. The upper portion of the falls was covered in clouds at the time this picture was taken. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Another beautiful morning winter scene in Yosemite Valley. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

Looking up to El Capitan. The height of El Capitan is deceiving in photographs. It rises 3593 feet from it's base to summit. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Another winter stream scene in the valley. If you view the larger version of this image, notice the sparkle of snow crystals. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Here is another view of El Capitan which includes an interesting tree stump. This is almost the same view as an earlier picture shown on page 35. The difference is that this picture was taken with my Nikon using slide film rather than the print film that was used in the Minolta on page 35. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
I think that's a portion of Cathedral Rocks in the background of this image. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

This is another deceiving shot. Yosemite falls is the fifth tallest in the world at 2425 feet. In this picture you are only seeing the lower portion of the falls. Even still, the size is enormous. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
In this picture I was trying to capture the ice detail on a mountainside in Yosemite. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Royal Arches taken just before sunset from the valley floor. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

This snow scene was found while walking on the path leading to Bridalveil falls in the mid-afternoon. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

This shot was taken just as the sun was setting giving the warm colors to the rocks. Yosemite, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

This early morning shot of El Capitan was taken the day after a fresh snow, and yes it was cold. Yosemite, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
Another early morning shot in Yosemite Valley. I call this picture 'Fresh Morning' Yosemite, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
