Capturing contrasts with the M9

Contrast - a marked difference, a difference, or something that is different.

I woke this morning in Yosemite where it had rained and snowed all night and was in the process of deciding which to do as I made my way to breakfast then checkout. The trees had a lovely frosting of new snow as did the mountains nearby. The sky was much as I have seen it all week which is to say mostly overcast.

I passed Tunnel View on my way out of the Park and had to stop just one more time.                                                          

A couple hours later I'm on a road leading into Death Valley where I took this image. No more snow, the temps are about double from what I've experienced the past week but still heavy clouds and light rain.

I'm in Lone Pine California where tomorrow I decide (maybe with a flip of a coin) of either going the 80 miles to Death Valley or make a drive further North to Mono Lake. Since I've been wanting to shoot Mono Lake in infrared I have a feeling that's where I'll be spending my lunch.

The images were all captured with a leica M9 and 50mm lens.

Thanks for stopping by - please remember your comments are always welcome.
