Photo: "Lower Yosemite Falls"

 
 

This image, of Lower Yosemite Falls, was taken during my first visit to Yosemite, back in 2012, with a large group of Google+ photographers. 

Tonight, I'm heading back to Yosemite National Park for the fourth or fifth time. I'm looking forward to getting outside, back in nature this weekend. It is also fantastic that it is almost a full moon, there's fresh snow in the valley and it's also 'Firefall' weekend.

I just returned from a great 3-day weekend in Yosemite with a bunch of Google+ photographers where I spent 3 nights photographing under the moonlight. It was my first time seeing the park and I couldn't have had a better experience. My goal for 2012 is to photograph the park during each season, but maybe even squeeze in a few other trips, like when there's snow.
