Snowy Olmsted Sunset (with Half Dome)

The last time I shot this scene (before the pic you see here), was in January--which is when nobody should be in the high country (by car), but our uncharacteristically dry winter this year meant the Tioga Pass was open well into January. Also uncharacteristically was this very late-season snowstorm that walloped us when we were in the high country over Memorial Day weekend--I certainly hadn't planned to spend my birthday shooting pictures of a snowy Half Dome! Crazy weather in those sierras, yes sir...
