Snow in May on Half Dome

I’ve been away for two months studying Italian in Italy and just got home. I missed photographing the glorious spring in California! To celebrate my homecoming I thought I would post this shot, taken several years ago when we had, like this month, a lot of snow in May in Yosemite.

Welcome back home to English! If I spoke more that three words of Italian I would tell you how magnificent this spring scene is in that wonderful language. Maybe magnifico???:laughing: I love images of Yosemite and hope to get there one day. The crowds have been the main reasons I have not attempted it yet. Nice work!

Love that kiss of gold Tony!

Grazie mille! Magnifico it is.

This really captures the essence of the change in seasons! Well done, Tony.

Beautiful image. Excellent work Tony!
