The Storm that Wasn’t
By John P. DeGrazio
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.
