Autumn Sunrise Over Half Dome, Yosemite National Park
How is it that Half Dome has been photographed so often from Cooks Meadow, yet it can still show itself off in unique ways? I always get myself out before sunrise when staying here. You never know what new scenes you will find.
Steadman Meadow, Yosemite Valley
On a day of somewhat boring weather, the meadow grasses were just waiting for someone to come along and pay attention. The heavy dew brought out the colors.
Cathedral Rocks, Yosemite National Park
The clouds were creating interesting shapes this spring day, including what looks like a lenticular cloud above Cathedral Rocks. The meadow in the foreground often has a seasonal lake at this time of year, forming a perfect reflecting pool. There is an interesting painting of Cathedral Rocks in the winter by Alfred Bierstadt from this viewpoint.
