- Description: Due to a lack of precipitation in the early winter of 2011, Tioga Pass in Yosemite stayed open past New Year's. Since this happens maybe once in a generation I knew I needed to take advantage of this unique photographic opportunity. The week after Christmas I set out for three days of camping, hiking, exploring, and shooting the high country near Tuolumne Meadows. My timing was just right and I had three days of incredible shooting conditions and more natural beauty than you can shake a stick at. This shot is from the sunset on the first night: a rip-roaring pink and purple glow which set the icy reflections and cracks aflame on Tenaya Lake.
- Gear: Nikon D7000, Tokina 12-24mm f/4 lens, Induro Tripod, Acratech Ballhead, Lee GND Filters
