    I took a trip to Yosemite with the family back in April, and I thought I'd share some of my favorite shots. I brought my A7, 16-35/4, 28/2, 55/1.8, and 24-240. The 24-240 was a great lens to have in my bag, since this was a family trip and I couldn't always stop to find the best framing or location from which to shoot. I had been to Yosemite in late summer a few times, but it was a whole other experience visiting in the spring with the waterfalls at their fullest. Seeing water cascading down the Royal Arches was very cool, since that flow has never been active when I was there in the past. All in all, it was a great time to visit. Full album link below.

    Wonderful images!
    Early April is the best time to visit in the Spring... temperature, greening, and the water volume.

    I like #7, the sidelight on the rock face and the plants is really nice.
