Rock and Tree at Siesta Lake

Rock and Tree at Siesta Lake

I wanted to photograph sunrise at Siesta Lake so I woke up at “Oh-Dark Thirty” in the morning and drove an hour and a half to Yosemite. I arrived a bit late…as usual, but the sky was cloudy. I unloaded my car…walker, camera bag, tripod and folding chair and hiked the 50 feet to the edge of the water, or as close as I could without falling in. The sun poked out occasionally but then it looked like a storm…it was October. Sure enough, as soon as I drove away, the snow started. Didn’t want to unpack again so I moved on.

Siesta Lake, Yosemite NP.
