We went to Yosemite and had a great time. It was not the best for photos but it was great to be there. With the road work going half the valley is not reachable by car but you can still hike to spots. The light was not dramatic and there was not one cloud in the sky. But the amount of water coming down the falls was good. Not too many flowers blooming n the valley but I saw some buds.
I was hiking threw a meadow on a walking path and I can see a dear in the trees at a distance coming our way. So I freeze in my tracks hoping the deer will still head in the same direction. Even tho the deer was not close I slowly lower my camera bag and pull out my camera. By the time I have my camera out the deer is walking around me in a semi circle. After the deer walks around me I have Half Dome with a back ground and the deer turns around and looks at me and just stares. Dave gasps at the scene and starts to take his camera out. Then some guy in a blue Hawaiian shirt comes running toward us with the biggest binoculars I have ever seen. I saw him before looks like he was shaking out a tent. As soon as the deer runs off he turns around and walks away I think he wanted scared him off for some reason. I still got the shot.
