Yosemite - Fall Colors, Late OCT 2011

These are from 2 days in Yosemite at the end of Oct. 2011 for a photo workshop and I brought a Canon SX10 IS and my favorite, the little Canon s95.

  There are 97 shots and I'm still pruning.

  The workshop group was led by Dave Wyman, and this is a sort of photo log of it.

Also, am using GooglePlus as a backup photo site.  If you try it, let me know what you think (pro or con).  Thumbnails there may be all that's needed to view this Fall in Yosemite gallery at http://bit.ly/yosemite-ab1 .

  PC users should toggle the =F11= key (each tap is an On/Off), for full-screen view.

  Click on any image to get the larger version.  Then click on "Next" or "Previous" to see other ones.





*** ( For FULL SCREEN: PC's, press/toggle F11.  Mac's, maximize screen. ) ***
