Elm Tree, Fall and Snow, Yosemite National Park, Fall 2011
I was fortunate enough to be in the park during a beautiful transition period, when the last of the fall colors intersected with the first (err second) snow shower. The snow storm which had dumped a small amount of snow overnight had just cleared early in the morning (after sunrise). If I had panned a little to the left, the upper left corner would have caught the bright morning sky. But instead I concentrated on the shadows. It takes a little while for the sunlight to reach the valley floor.
