Yosemite Valley in White

This image is from a trip I took to Yosemite Valley about 2 years ago. I’ve been eager to get back there this winter, but not with the national parks closure. It is a magical place in winter.

This is one photo, edited in Photoshop. Thanks in advance for any comments or critiques.

Very nice winter scene, Kathy! You made good use of the tree in the foreground but still kept the background sharp which is pretty important with that kind of impressive background! I like the square crop also. I couldn’t see any sign of color in the large version so I’m assuming it was a b&w conversion.

Stunning. I would love to be there in winter.

Kathy, I like how you’ve focused on the lone, very snow covered tree and balanced it with the grandeur of Yosemite Valley. The strong mid-ground transition from the bright aspens to the dark evergreens adds very well to the scene.
