Upper Yosemite Falls, Yosemite

Mike Hall (California, United States) on 5 January 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A break in a recent storm left the valley floor with a fresh coat of snow and the lingering cool temperatures, left snow clinging to the trees in this late afternoon shot.

Thanks for visiting my photoblog. Though I may not be able to respond to every comment, I do read them all and I appreciate your interest.

Beautiful winter scene Mike. The mist above the falls gives a real sense of how cold it was that day. Nice balance throughout the scene.

I like how the stream just leads the eye up into the frame. I'm jealous at how often you guys get to Yosemite!
