Mid WInter's Dream - Yosemite National Park, CA

AHHHHHH - California!!!! I just returned to the left coast after a long stent in Ohio and, man, am I glad to be back. As the Mojave Desert gave way to rolling foothills and green lodgepole pines, I could start to make out the ridges and peaks of those beautiful Sierras. No matter how many times I see them, I am always struck by their beauty and splendor. So, I decided to post this one from the most famous overlook in Yosemite and probably the world - Tunnel View. Like most people living close to Yosemite I have shot from here numerous times, but this image taken right around Christmas has been my favorite so far. I was finally able to catch a nice thick blanket of snow on the forest floor and trees, some low lying fog hanging around the valley, and some pretty nice pastels showing up in the sunset.©2012 JTBaskinphoto ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
