My photography career started in the late 90′s – in Yosemite with a point- and-shoot Nikon 990. Other photographers made fun of my digital point-and-shoot and suggested I get a “real camera” – and by “real”, they meant “film”. Five years later, when I returned to take this shot, almost everyone was taking photographs with a digital SLR.
The key to capturing photographs like this one, is to recognize that weather and seasons impact the light at a location. We traveled to Yosemite in Winter right after a snowstorm. Our efforts were rewarded with this magnificent sight… and as an added bonus, the park was almost deserted!
