Saturday was an awesome day for a hike. Mother Nature gave us a break in the rain so we could get out of the house, get some exercise, breathe some fresh air, and run some film through our cameras before the showers resumed on Sunday. It was a chilly 57 degrees, but we quickly warmed up as we started hiking. The overcast sky was perfect for taking pictures of the moving water at Little Yosemite because it enabled slower shutter speeds, blurring the moving water and transforming it into beautiful, cotton candy-like, mistiness.
