Cook's Meadow Life Cycles

If you've been to Yosemite, you know this spot. Cook's Meadow is just on the other side of the Yosemite Falls bus stop on Northside Drive. After the clearing of a cold, sloshy winter storm that unfortunately sleeted more than it snowed a light covering of snow was left strewn across the valley. The sun peeked out just for just a minute or two and Half Dome in the distance showed its face through the clouds. Most of the tourists were sitting in their cars with the heaters on when I made this image. Soon after I got my shot, a big cloud rolled in and took all that warm light away, just as a flurry of photggers raced out of their cars to try and capture the scene.
