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.

|Notes:||This is a two exposure blend image to reduce the highlights on the walls of El Capitan and to bring out some of the details of the shadows. The white balance was also adjusted to cool down the snow.|
