After a treacherous drive into Yosemite Valley, the clouds parted just long enough to get a couple decent shots of El Capitan before the snow really started coming down again.

I appreciate all of the kind comments and generous scores. Thanks for my first top 10!

This is well suited for B&W. I'm not sure I like the centered main subject.

I really like this shot. I'd be curious to see it in color. maybe HDR?

Having spent Spring break of 1991, a year where there had been absolutely no rain and following a seven-year drought, during the week dubbed as "The March Miracle" in Yosemite, I appreciate how difficult it is to get good shots during inclement weather! I hope your patience was paid off in tripple while you waited for the storm to break, and that you are appropriately rewarded for your efforts!
