During my last trip to Yosemite National Park I was hoping for snow. The forecast had snow coming but when I arrived the skies were mostly clear. Some clouds had finally come in which made sunset quite beautiful. But it was still fairly clear in a lot of areas. When I was at Tunnel View during sunset some clouds started to float in. It was very cool because clouds are always that. But what the clouds brought really had me smiling for the duration of my visit. Snowfall. During my sunset shoot the snow started to gently fall and cover everything it touched. The snowflakes weren’t thick but it was enough to be clearly visible in person.
That being said I decided to turn to the side and away from Tunnel View. I spotted this section of mountain and I enjoyed how it sat underneath the thick clouds. It was touch to catch any snowflakes in this shot but I liked how the haze gently painted the top of the frame. And I also enjoyed how the further up I looked, the snow was thicker and thicker. Of course it would be but it’s something that I always enjoy looking at when I’m in a snowy area.
Planning A Return Visit
Since driving out of Yosemite I’ve been thinking about a return visit. I loved it there so much and I’m determined to visit there during all four seasons. Not necessarily this year but I will definitely make that happen. I would still like to see Yosemite in deep Winter snow. But I’m also thinking about making my way there for the Fall. I suppose it all depends on when I plan to be in Japan. I’ve thought about the Summer too but I imagine it would be very crowded there. I’m already missing out on the Spring season which apparently has provided great weather. I do feel confident that no matter when I go I’ll be treated to incredible scenery. There’s really no way a photographer can go wrong with a visit to Yosemite.
I can’t wait to return there.
