I had a very nice little trip to Yosemite last week. I like to get over there before the Memorial Day weekend when it gets way too crowded for me. Of course this is one of the most photographed place on earth, and its' pretty hard to get an original shot, but I still never get tired of going back and trying!
Up at Glacier Point, there was a bit of a rainbow coming off of Vernal Fall

Using the new Tamzooka on my 7D at 600mm, I could see a couple of climbers enjoying the fruits of their labors on top of Half Dome.

Had to wade through a busload of German tourists to get this one at Valley View. Bridalveil is going to dry up early this year.

Back at the hotel right outside the arch rock gate with some pizza and beer, we enjoyed the night sky we never see in the light polluted bay area.

The next day we drove hope over Tioga Pass and then back over Sonora Pass. I still haven't got to those files yet. Hopefully soon!
