Trail Through Mariposa Grove

After staying in Yosemite Valley all day and night it was time to head home. On the way back we stopped at the Mariposa Grove. The largest  Sequoia Grove in Yosemite. There was this cool little bridge and the sun was peaking out just for a second to warm up the trees a bit with it's light. 

This is actually one of those photos where I kind of wish I would have shot it HDR since the dynamic range of the scene was fairly high, but it was cold and I didn't want to deal with my tripod. When it's in the 30's-40's touching a metal tripod with bare hands isn't fun. None the less it turned out pretty cool. Sequoias are surprisingly really difficult to shoot because they are so big.
