Taken on an un-usually cold morning in Yosemite National Park, CA

It is impossible to convey the wonder of this location at this time. The distant falls occasionally 'cracked' with a sound like thunder...

I was the 1st Photographer on the 'scene' that morning and had the pleasure of pristine snow in the meadow.

Thanks you to everyone who voted and commented, very much appreciated...

Chris

Congratulations on your excellent image! You're so lucky to have Yosemite within your reach. I visited her 9 times during my years in California, and I still miss her dearly.

Amazing image. I didn't vote in this challenge, but I'll give this a 10 now! Linc commented about possibly cropping a tad (I won't restate it here) and I did wonder that myself. IMO, perhaps the stream at the bottom is a bit distracting... CONGRATS on the blue!

Really?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2011 09:44:48 AM
Fantastic ! ! The only, and I mean, ONLY thing that I would want to change (seriously, nothing really) would be to try a narrow crop just to see if it give 'height' to the image. Again, Fantastic !

Very nice and well deserved blue ribbon. I would have guessed it to score even better, but anything over 7 is nothing to complain about :)

The day after we left! We were en route for Tahoe when we realized the latest snowstorm was coming and said the heck with it and bailed for the coast. Great shot!
