    Two days before Christmas, it rained so hard in the Northern California which meant that there will be snow for sure un the Eastern Sierra or Yosemite National Park....so with a few photographers friends of mine, we decided to take a day trip. We got there around before sunrise, we were surprised to see snow covered the Valley floor from Tunnel view...however the burn colors were not there so we rushed to the meadow where we can get the El Capitan reflection on Merced River.

    :) Thank you @PacNWMike@PacNWMike ...I think I need to add that we had to leave because we didn't want to get stuck in the snow.

    Beautiful photos. You obviously didn't get the memo stating that m43 is not capable of producing quality landscape photos.

    Great shots, @Nam-in-Sonoma. I especially like the first one from Sentinel Bridge. And the first one of Yosemite Falls is a killer.

    Wow, breathtaking pictures. And I'm sort of envious that the park is just a "day trip" away from you ;) You certainly made the trip worthwhile. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you @Pecos@Pecos, @Kalifornier@Kalifornier and @Julia@Julia.
    Yes very lucky to live not too far ... I met someone this weekend who drives from LA, 8 hours one way, when he thinks it's going to snow.
