This winter view of Yosemite Valley's Half Dome is from Cooks Meadow, located between the Visitor's Center and Yosemite Lodge. Cook's Meadow is a large open space with the Merced River meandering through it. Many of Yosemite's photogenic granite landmarks are visible from the Meadow.
In the winter when the snow is deep enough to make walking here difficult, I enjoy putting on some cross country skiis and gliding through Nature's terrain.

The jet tracks are well positioned here and seem to start somewhere behind this famous and very impressive mountain. They really add a lot to the composition here.

complimenti per la bella cattura.
La composizione è eccellente e lo sono anche i colori molto vivi e luminosi.
Belle le scie che disegnano in maniera stupenda il cielo.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

The white lines in the sky seem to put an emphasis on the mountain.
A beautiful and sunny winter scenery.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ray. Beautiful composition you did here. The sprites at the sky give even more deth. I would like to see a little bit more of sharpness at the fg.

impressive mountain and very well presented. The snow on the peak adds some contrast to the grey slopes but also make it look more majestic. Nice idea to place some trees in the foreground for more depth and additional point of interest in the composition. Very pretty sky finishes off the whole image.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice Sunday
