Fresh Snow, Half Dome View, Yosemite

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 6 March 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I love finding new compositions in Yosemite. On this February morning, I found an overnight snow had etched nearby rocks and trees in white, providing a perfect (and very short-lived) foreground for El Capitan, Half Dome, and Sentinel Dome. I write more about it here.

Lovely. Like a painted-in etching. Me, I'd crop off most of those rocks at the bottom and leave just the top two 'layers' of them. Beautiful. stars. ;oD

Hi Gary,I can't access your Word Press Blog from here at work but I just cannot resist commenting here and now :-) This spot - this location here is just wonderful! I certainly do not remember seeing anything shot from here but you know the park like the back of your hand, I know..But this one is so perfect for this shot. The snow really dresses those rocks beautifully and the branches are just electric with that snow on them I always LOVE that look. The inclusion of both Half Dome and El Capitan in this snowy setting really provides a full and spiritual energy. This is superb in every way, visually, technically, and spiritually, Gary...WOW! Have a great "shop" this weekend - sure sorry I can't be there...And thank you VERY much for your wonderful comment to me sir. All the best!

This is such a beautiful perspective. I love how the snow covered rocks in the foreground ties in with Half Dome and El Capitan in the distance. Gorgeous image!
