Dream achieved! Half Dome Heaven!

Half Dome Dream!

Though our time was brief in Yosemite we finally got to see Yosemite and Half Dome. It lived up to every expectation and more!

One of the best...

and clearest photos of Half Dome Kathy. Congrats on your first visit to Yosemite. My wife and I just got back from a three day hiking and camping trip in the Bishop Pass area. It was fantastic, but I'm glad I'll be sleeping in my own bed tonight instead of a cramped sleeping bag.
All the best,
Marc

Re: One of the best...

Thank you Marc! We only had a day in Yosemite but it was perfect weather with fog and clouds in the morning and then a cool breeze and not too many crowds.

I'm jealous of your cramped sleeping bag trip though! Haven't camped in ages (:

I'll try to get more pictures into an album this week.

Great shot!

Glad you made it to the "Incomparable Valley" (John Muir) Kathy! Look forward to more of the pics.

the G12 is a little beast of a camera.

Re: Great shot!

Thanks Windsor for catching my first post from Yosemite! After having to initially cancel our Yosemite stay due to my husband's health we managed to get a wonderful day there at the end of the trip.

And you're so right about the G12! Sometimes I have to check the EXIF data to make sure a shot wasn't actually taken with my T4i. Watch for more shots posted from both cameras.

If I ever get out to YNP again we will have to get together and do a day hike!

Great weather

We were there 1 month earlier and caught great weather as well. Half Dome is a beautiful rock ain't it! Nice shot.

Re: Great weather

Getting good weather at Yosemite just adds icing to the perfect "cake" doesn't it?

Thanks so much Marmaduke!

I'm off to look at your photos!

Re: Great weather

I haven't posted most of my Yosemite photos yet but thanks for looking! I saw there was an illness that cut your trip short. I sure hope you can make it back>

Re: Great weather

Thanks, actually I'm fine but my husband was told not to spend any extended time at elevation so we just visited there for one day.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

Heavenly landscape ...

"In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living ..
Baby, I was afraid before;
But, I'm not afraid anymore ...

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?

Ooh, heaven is a place on earth ..."
