Rain and snow were in the forecast for Yosemite yesterday so we showed some flexibility in rescheduling our events for the weekend. We flip-flopped a photo workshop with an adventure hike, and everything worked out perfectly.

As the leader of the hike, I was thrilled to be greeted by fresh snowfall as I entered the park. It was nothing more than a tease, though. The storms never materialized for more than twenty minutes.

I was excited to photograph a few partial clearings in the morning, but for most of the afternoon, the skies were gray and flat. Of course, on my way home, I noticed more clearing skies. I was already running late so I wondered if any photographers were able to capture some drama. Here are some of the panoramas I was able to capture in the morning and early afternoon.
