Sunup, Yosemite Valley
“There is pleasure in the pathless woods.” -Lord Byron
I was up and out early doing some off trail wandering in Yosemite Valley on a crisp November morning after moderate overnight snowfall. I was cutting tracks through ankle to mid-calf deep fluffy virgin snow with no real destination in mind. No agenda. No schedule. No deadline. No worries. Just how I like it.
I knew it would not be long before the sun rose above this ridge. Judging by the background glow, I had a good idea of where the sun would crest, so I found a suitable vantage point, set up my tripod and framed up this shot. Now all I had to do was enjoy my surroundings, drink hot black coffee, and wait.
