Wherever you go in Yosemite, there is beauty, all four seasons. On this early morning outing, the most photographic time is at 30 to 90 minutes past the sunrise, on this case past 6:48 a.m.
We were at the Swinging Bridge and I walk around at the bottom of the bridge and check out angles, facing west. I do not have a polarizing filter on my camera, so the sky is really not reflective of what you see at the bottom.
Facing east, as the light was slowly coming up, I focused on the foreground trees, bare of leaves.
this is how it looked pass 90 minutes.
Everywhere you go, you can appreciate what nature has to offer. Enjoy your weekend.
