Some snapshots from Yosemite....

Postby Hikin Mike » Sun Feb 17, 2008 8:20 pm

Had a chance to go up to Yosemite for an afternoon to meet another photographer. It was kind of hard to get out to take any "good" shots as the snow was deep and I don't have snow tires on my wheelchair! So we went up to Tunnel View and shot a few photos while I was there. Unfortunately there were no clouds for this trip.

Couldn't take any photos of the Horsetail Falls "Firefall" as the trees/snow made it impossible for me to get any shots. No water there at this point anyway, but it was a cool to see it. Hoping to get back soon since the kids want to go to the snow.

Click on the first shot to see it @800px.

Thanks!

My wife should take the credit for the icicle shot. She wanted a snapshot of the ice, so I asked her to get the van as close as I could and I just shot that photo from the open door. Just cropped it for composition and I thought it would look "cool" as a B/W. :D

Nice shots, Mike. I'm kinda playing around with b/w now. Thanks!
