Thanks so much for the response!!! I would love to see your image of the chapel - feel free to send it on to me at:

This image was taken yesterday morning. There was quite a bit of snow on the valley floor from a recent storm and there were continuing snow showers while we were there.

Cheers!

Hiya Paula!

Thanks for the comment...it was a perfect morning in the Yosemite Valley and I was standing in only a foot of powdery snow to get this angle! =8^)

Cheers!

Hi Joy! Thanks for the comment/compliment!!! It was an absolutely amazing day in Yosemite and as I type this I am thinking about how and when I can get back up there. So beautiful and inspiring!

Susan, Carol, Paula, Jean -

Thanks so much folks! I am so happy that y'all like this shot and that it was selected as a finalist!!!!

Carol - this was taken from a snow covered Sentinel meadow within the Yosemite Valley. The view is just perfect - and when in the snow...AMAZING!!!

Again, thanks to all of you!!!

Congratulations, Craig - I am very envious, I had tried to get away to go up there myself, but it was tough to time it just right. Had to be there when it happened, and you got lucky! But you did a very nice job with the situation. Great mood to this image - and you have next year's holiday card already to go!

Francis, Gary, Mary, Evy, Colette!!!

Thanks-a-billion for the incredibly kind words. I am so happy this image was chosen by the judges!!! Does this justify the purchase of a new wide angle lens? =8^)

Seriously, thanks again!!!

Brenda,

Appreciate the comment. Yup, it is tricky to get the timing just right - this was a first for me at Yosemite. Thanks again for the kind words! This will definitely be the main choice for next year's Christmas card...

Cheers!!!

Nice photo! I like that it looks like a black & white except for the color in the cathedral. Gives it a nice effect.

very interesting contrast between color and B&W! I was wondering if it´s B&W or just the mother nature´ colors of winter... Congratulations,
Cheers from Portugal, Su

Loraine & Susana -

Wow!!! Thanks so much for the really super nice comments!!! Yes, the black and white look of everything but the church blew my mind, too.

Susana, it was nature's doing completely. The look came as a total suprise to me, but I was thrilled when I finally printed the image and it had that look. In fact, the entire area was really grayscale in appearance except the church - it just came out in a way that made me so happy.

Again, thanks for the comments!

Nothing like commenting years later ;) This is just beautiful... what an amazing "wall" of trees! And the church really pops out... just beautiful! A very belated congrats on this win. (It came up on the Contest Page today.)
