Persistence (or maybe stubbornness) and patience is what's required when sitting at Tunnel View overlooking Yosemite Valley as a winter storm passes through, sometimes for hours, and if one's lucky, sometimes only moments. Occasionally its just worth it, alternately standing around in mixed rain and snow and retreating to the car, waiting for something, anything to happen with clouds, light, rock, water and trees. There I was, waiting for the serendipitous moment of sunset and the hope of the storm just clearing.
