2 hours at Yosemite

I was on a business trip yesterday - had to go to Merced, CA for a short meeting. Wrapped up around 4:00, so having never been to that part of CA before, I headed out to see what I could see of Yosemite before the sun went down. A 6 AM departure this morning and the desire to get a few hours of sleep had me on a pretty tight schedule.

Yosemite was awesome. The small corner I saw was amazing, and I will be back. With my widest lens being a 28mm (wide end of an old AF 28-85) on a D80 (=42mm) I'm really not equipped for landscape work - my results capturing the sights fall more into the snapshot category. Still, I came away with a few shots I'm pretty happy with. A wide lens has also moved up on my shopping list.

ISO100 1/250 f8.0 85mm AE raw

ISO100 1/500 f3.5 28mm AE raw

ISO100 1/125 f8.0 40mm AE raw

ISO100 1/250 f8.0 85mm AE raw

PP for all shots was Bibble Lite and Paint Shop Pro X2
