First Snow of Winter [Expore #117]

Oddly, I was very unhappy with this photo when I first processed it - its one of my least favorites of my recent Yosemite trip. I feel the blown out sky really lets things down. The flickr hive mind appears to disagree however, as its by far my most viewed and fav'ed photo. This is causing me to question whether I fundamentally misunderstand what makes a good photo.
