Wednesday, 13 February:
I am busy sorting and packing gear for a six day trip to Yosemite National Park starting tomorrow. I am really looking forward to visiting the park in Winter where the sole purpose of the trip is photography.
Lin, Mike, and I will be driving to Fresno tomorrow morning to meet up with our leader, Mark Rasmussen of LightChase Photography. He is there right now with another group. The current forecast is for clear weather through Monday. This portends well for an opportunity to photograph Horsetail Falls. It is a small falls on the East side of El Capitan which when the setting sun light hits it, it becomes like a firefall. It is only possible to get that light during the latter part of February.
At the present time there is little to no snow in the forecast through the time we are going to be there. Even so, I am prepared with snow chains/cables for my car. I did a run through on how to attach them this morning. :-)
Here are a couple of pictures from a Spring trip in 2010----
