Glad to have you visit Mountain Meadows Photographs. I hope you enjoy my view of nature. I am not one for a lot of words, so it is mostly photographs.

Unless noted all of the photographs are my original work.

Yosemite National Park

School was out so Linda, Lisa and I all went to California.  Our first stop was Yosemite National Park.  Still a lot of snow there and some of the roads and most of the trails were closed.  Here are some of the shots from Yosemite Valley.

This is the view from Mirror Lake which was quite small. Lisa thought it was more like a chubby river than a lake.

If you are in Yosemite with a camera you have to attempt to take some black and white shots in the tradition of Ansel Adams. These are my attempts.

Last but not least a little color. These were the only green plants I found.
