The Right Time and the Right Place... Photographers' Credo

Yosemite, California

It was so worth getting up at 5am to be in Yosemite for sunrise, and enjoy the wonderful backlighting, as the trees in the park
hit Autumn peak colors. I am so grateful and appreciative whenever I'm lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

Second Place, 187th Show and Tell Conetst, "Shadows as Subjects"
