Yosemite Spring!

During the past month, I made many trips to nearby Yosemite Valley, and so I’d like to share a collection of these new images.  Even though I have lived in or near Yosemite since 1977, I found fresh compositions and light/weather conditions that made for invigorating sessions, and new work for my ongoing Yosemite portfolio.
