This shot shows how the valley transforms to in winter. The flowing water becomes streaks of frozen ice. Grass covered meadows become thick banks of soft snow. A white fog arises from the powdery snow. Scenes like the above, taken taken from the southern shore of the Merced River across El Capitan, have become etched in my mind and remind me of the diversity in Yosemite.
