A few shots from Yosemite Valley

Postby copeg » Wed Nov 14, 2007 1:06 pm

Well, I thought I'd post a few photos from Yosemite Valley this past weekend.

El Capitan shrouded in clouds after a morning storm (velvia 50)

Similar to the above, but a narrower field and shot with my digital camera (more detail was brought out of the shadows - thanks to HikinMike and others for that suggestion)

A BIG and FAT black bear near Bridalveil Falls. Something seems almost zoo-like when you find one of these with a massive tracking collar and tags in both ears (in this shot, the tags weren't too visible, and I removed what was left of them)
