Yosemite Chapel Snowfall February 28, 2005 Yosemite National Park, California, USA. Canon EOS 10D , lens not recorded. One of my "luckiest" images... I was on a short trip to California and my brother and I decided to go to Yosemite. The first night it was raining when we sent to bed (we were staying at the Yosemite Valley Lodge, iin the park) and I had given up on any early morning photo opportunities. My brother woke me up well before dawn telling me that the rain had turned to snow during the night and to get my a** in gear. We headed out and found this scene just a short drive away. I photographed right from the road and had to watch for the snow plows that were out clearing the road. In just a couple hours all this snow had melted and this scene was gone. My only regret is that I only captured the image in jpg format which I gave up later to capture all my images in raw format.
