Along the road to Tuolumne Meadows, little ponds and lush green meadows are left after the snows melt. When the road opens in early summer, it's a great time to take a leisurely drive, with lots of pauses to take in the beauty. Over the years, this photo has "grown" on me, and I'm not sure why.  I only remember that it took a long time to take the photo, because I kept moving slightly in order to get the "feeling" right.  Usually, as in this case, I only take a single photo.  One of the secrets to landscape photography, for me,  is "take lots of time  -- not lots of pictures".
