Starting The New Year In Yosemite

2012 is already shaping up to be a busy year. We rang in the new year up at Yosemite National Park photographing along side of Trey Ratcliff, Thomas Hawk, Robert Scoble, Scott Jarvie, and a bunch of other photographers for a small Google+ photo walk.

Oddly, there is no snow in Yosemite right now. All the roads are open and the folks at the lodge told me that there hasn’t been this little snow for 136 years. So new years day we were all up before dawn shooting the first light of the new year at Glacier Point.

It was great to spend time with everyone and see the photos that came out of the trip. I was lucky enough to even managed to capture a shooting star with Robert and Scott one morning.

Can’t wait to get back up there when it finally starts to snow. You can view all of my Yosemite photos over in my Yosemite Gallery.
