Our first day in Yosemite we were greeting by a very cold summer storm on Fourth of July weekend. The whole weekend was stormy and dramatic, I found out later the following week it snowed at Tioga Pass. This shot was taken at Olmstead Point.
A sunrise shot at the famous Mono Lake tufas. These unusual rock formations are ancient calcified water springs. Basically the underground streams of water from the Eastern Sierras hit the alkali lake and cause a chemical reaction. These particular tufas are hundreds if not thousands of years old.
