    Folks, was in Yosemite last weekend.

    The 70-200 f/2.8 felt surprisingly lighter on the back - the backpack
    is awesome. It is a PITA to carry it. First night, my arms (where
    the biceps and triceps are supposed to be) hurt like hell. By day #2,
    I was in much worse condition that I got used to that pain.

    Each scene had 5/7 stops of differing exposure, so many many blending
    stuff do to. I will post more pics as I find more time.

    Any way, here are the easy pickings.

    1) Of layers

    2) Pine cone and the chapel

    3) Waiting

    4) Valley of the gods panorama [12 overlapping photos]

    Thanks Bryan. You must visit the place, do it before summer though. That is when it is fun.
