Hello All,

We had a great trip to Yosemite last week and I wanted to share a couple of pictures I thought summed up our experience.

This first image was taken from a turnout on the Northside Dr. just east of Pohono Bridge. I'm pretty sure most tourist have taken this exact shot and you may have seen it many times before but I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures of my own.

Here's a shot of Half Dome taken from our campsite in Lower Pines. We certainly got lucky and had one of the few sites with a view.

Nice series, Jerry. Good composition, and the slight underexposure really emphasizes the richness of the colors. What camera and lens were you using?

Yosemite is one place I haven't visited yet, but it's high up on my bucket list.
