It’s spring here in Berkeley, but winter still clings to the mountains. On a recent trip to Yosemite, coinciding with spring break, I took Julian and Nicky to Yosemite. We hiked up to Vernal Falls in a snow storm, and I shot this view carefully from the Vernal Falls bridge using a tripod. The scene was essentially monochromatic, with the sun just started to appear. When I processed the image, after converting to black and white, I added a very slight sepia tint.
It’s always great to visit Yosemite Valley—at any time of year.
