Once you enter Yosemite Valley its grandeur is overwhelming. The towering granite walls provided some amazing backdrops to forest and still water shooting. Such a change in scenery from my desert landscapes of red sandstone and desert varnish. The sheer size and scope of the cliffs, domes, waterfalls, alpine scenes made it a whole new world. 

I didn't remember until I'd seen Half Dome, that I'd been here once as a kid on a family trip. That was all I had remembered. Every year we vacationed at a cabin at Sequoia National Park and must have made a visit to Yosemite all those years ago. 

I want to return next winter to catch the park dressed in white if I can't return this spring.
