Mirror Lake in Winter and Spring

This is a photograph I took last weekend in the snow in Yosemite Valley from Mirror Lake.

It’s fun (and instructive) to compare it with a photo I took from close to the same spot in the late spring last year:

    I have down loaded many pictures of Mirror Lake. My favorite picture of the lake was take in Feb 1978. I was amazed that I could point my camera down in the lake and capture a perfect refection which I don’t think it is possible repeat the same today. I have a picture of the medow,but then your picture shows the lake much like it was. I have become a student of the lake and would like to learn more about the physical changes take place.
