Yosemite is a pleasure in the summer, because there are lots of greens, trails, waterfalls and beautiful views. But in winter it’s right out stunning!
Especially on higher altitudes.
We saw some cars along the side of the road, and followed  the footsteps in the snow, which brought us here.

the mountain tops almost look like they’re part of the sky
combined with the snow heaven seems so close.
The cold air makes it harder (for me) be long periods outside.

  1. Lovely shot of the camellia, Jesh. The pics of Yosemite are great. That’s one of the National Parks on my bucket list that I haven’t visited yet. I intend to get there in the next two or three years.

  2. The water reflection behind the tree is such a beautiful composition ! I like also very much the pic with this huge snowed mountain… Very impressive.

  3. Love the beautiful camellia. I had an aunt with that name. 🙂 What rich landscapes you have to surround you and capture on film. And, WOW to your paintings. SO lovely. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your painting is inspiring as I’m a novice acrylic painter wannabe. 😉

  4. A great post! I went to Yosemite over 30 years ago and it was a memorable trip. Thank you also for linking with Today’s Flowers, especially appreciated as we were having problems with the link. It seems to be back to normal now. Have a great week!
