This storm brought Yosemite it's water back, just days before Yosemite Falls was dry and Bridal Veil Falls was nothing more than a trickle. Now the waterfalls still have water, but it's nothing compared to what it was when this storm was here.

This and my previous picture are of Yosemite in its prime. Shots of sunny skies are a dime in a dozen.

Thanks for all the comments and favs! <3

I cannot express how thankful I am for all your wonderful and nice comments and especially my first daily deviation! Love you all! <3

OMG!  First off, your picture is amazing.  Second off, right as I clicked on it the song 'Promise (Reprise)' from the Silent Hill Soundtrack came on.... I'm covered head to toe in Goosebumps!!!!!!

I love this! I actually had to look twice before I saw Halfdome! This is a side of Yosemite most people don't get to see, you're right!

Aw, the poor trees. You can see where some are struggling because of the drought. This hits rather close to home for me, as I'm just outside Sequoia and we're seeing a similar phenomenon down here. So glad we got some rain, at least.

I had to double check that you didn't just colourize the Ansel Adams print!  Absolutely love it!

Absolutely gorgeous! Being there when the weather is like that must be such an exhilarating experience. This photograph makes it seem like a fantasy landscape; so cool that this is in the US. :)
