New Yosemite Winter Images

Here are a few new winter images made in Yosemite!

I had a wonderful day with a private student in Yosemite on Wednesday. There were no clouds, no interesting weather, but the ice was fabulous. I helped Shauna find simple but clean designs within all the chaos of patterns. There is always something of profound beauty to photograph in Yosemite.

I am still post-processing images from Dec. 27th, when we had a killer sunrise, sunset and moonrise. Oh yes, and fresh snowfall. Here is one from the sunset.

  1. Wonderful stuff William! The top image of ice has an amazingly fluid feeling to it! The sunrise image is beautifully composed with excellent detail in the lower portion of the picture!
