Nestled in Yosemite Valley lies a lone Elm tree near the Merced River. I was lucky enough to be in the park in late February when a snowstorm hit. I had been photographing this tree all week, and when the snow came, I headed straight back to this tree.
The snow fell pretty hard and created almost white-out conditions, rendering the camera's autofocus system useless. Although it was challenging, I ended up capturing this frame with manual focus and shot with a high shutter speed to freeze the falling snowflakes!
