Yeah not working leads to limited funds lol. I just haven't saved as much as I should but even if I had all the money I could want I just need to work more so I can buy a vehicle. Turning 30 is a good age to start driving for the first time lol
Rogue, you did not include a picture of Letora Lake. I was there last year as well, just before the major fires broke out. Still, there was smoke from southern California. So, below, some more context for your TR.

The parts of it I saw were not picturesque as I recall in the morning light so I did not take any photos of it. Sometimes I will take photos only for documentation purposes but other wise I think I have a decent eye for photos which keeps me from taking many thousands of images more than I normally might.
I camped at Latora Lake and it is very photogenic in some lighting conditions. I got some fair photos. However, the trail has very limited views and unless you camp there, it is hard to get good photos or even realize the photo opportunities. By the way, it is really rough to walk around that lake! I camped half way down the south shore and it was an ordeal to get there. Off trail in northern Yosemite can get rough so you can really get away from people with some effort. Doyle, your photos are great - better than mine. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks! Sometimes you are just in the right place at the right time. The 'Magic Hours' are always nice, but sometimes "bad" weather and smoke can make for some nice/interesting pictures. Here for example, the southern California smoke that blew in was unpleasant, but it helped give my pictures some nice depth of field, not to mention an impressive "Red Dawn". Ya gotta take what nature gives you.
