    I took advantage of the dry winter to visit the high Sierra over the Memorial Day holiday in late May. We were rewarded with perfect weather and just the right amount of snow on the trail up to Whitney.

    Shot with the E-M5 and 12-50 and processed in Lightroom.

    Nice set of images and looks like a stunning location.

    I like the contrast of the warm sunlight at days end and the blue frosty snowy crystals.
