Yosemite National Park…

Hi Friends,

Just returned from a too short trip to Yosemite National Park.  I’ve lived in California for 25 years, and been close to it several times, but this is the first time I’ve ever actually gone into the park.  Spent the night in a wonderful, quaint, dog-friendly inn just outside the park – about 45 minutes to the classic “tunnel view”.   I was concerned about getting into the park at sunrise for photography purposes, but need not have worried.  Instead of the classic clear blue California skies, we had threatening low-hanging clouds most of the day…even better!

I pared down my kit to two bodies: my workhorse Nikon D2x, and my newly infrared-converted Nikon D100.  This was going to be my first time out with the D100 since the conversion, and I was anxious to see what we could do.

A day in the park is clearly not enough, but just right to whet my whistle for future excursions.  A few favorites from the trip:

I’m ready to go back!

Thanks for looking.
