Morning Mist

Recently I visited Yosemite National Park to scout a few locations for future winter trips. I took me only several hours to get annoyed with the masses of people, so I searched for lesser (at least for me) known locations to find peace and solitude (I know I shouldn't expect this at YNP). I stopped at this creek, stumbled over a number of rocks and - in addition to fresh bear poop - found this vista.

I returned back the next morning to photograph the scene in better conditions. There was also more fresh bear poop, but thankfully no critter was spotted during image capture.

Unfortunately, while turning my polarizer to reduce some of the glare, it dropped off the lens and fell into the stream and was never to be seen again.
