It was the first time I've been out with my camera this year, so I made the most of it by camping overnight in Yosemite. I was hoping for some snow. But the weather... what are you going to do? Besides, it's a lot less crowded in January.

Beautiful shots Dave! You're tougher than me, being able to camp in Yosemite in January. BRRR!

Beautiful captures - The beauty of Yosemite is almost visual overload...
Yep, at times it seems like a different planet to me.

Don't worry, I wasn't sleeping in a tent. :biggrin:

I don't think I've posted any photos of my Subaru Crosstrek micro-camper set-up here. But with this rig I can stretch out in comfort, and stay toasty warm.

Spectacular! All great but #2 is tops for me.
I think it's my favorite too. And after scrambling down a steep, muddy slope, and over several slippery boulders, I was determined to make it worth the effort.

Fantastic shots. I am very envious, Yosemite is one of my bucket list locations.
It'll make your eyeballs pop, no matter how many photos you've seen of the park.

Wonderful captures from a remarkable location.

You would think it would still be snow-covered this time of year
I was hoping for snow. But the weather gods didn't cooperate.

Thanks all for your kind words!

My good buddy Zeke had a Crosstrec. He's since graduated to a mini-camp trailer and an Ascent.
I think I would have taken the 60% side for the bed and used the 40% for stuff. But that's just me. Nice set up you have there.

Yeah, that would have been my first choice too. But for some reason Subaru made the driver's seat slide forward much farther than the passenger seat. So there's not enough room on the passenger side to allow me to stretch my 5'10" (178 cm) frame all the way. Everything's a trade-off. But it sure beats sleeping on the ground. :laugh:

The photos are spectacular and the accommodations look relatively comfortable, I regret not getting a hatchback !

You'd have more room and options in the back of a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (74" with the rear seats down). But it is a more money, and particularly depending on engine and selected options, let's just say it is generally a thirsty machine. On the flip side, you can go just about anywhere with one.

Well, as long as we're dreaming here, why don't I pick me up one of these?

Channeling your inner Ansel Adams? ;)

Never been to Yosemite but I think it would be hard not to create at least a few b&w photos, since there are so many famous ones by Adams and others.
