Yosemite December Storm

 Last month I went to Yosemite in order to try timing for a late fall snowstorm. I ended up catching the storm part of it while getting very wet in the process. These transitional seasons are most interesting to me as there is a wide variety of color contrasts that can be photographed. Also, having …
