"Hanging View" of BridalVeil Fall and Merced River bank in front. 5:45 PM May 24. #2552

Yosemite

At the river bank, I was at the widest angle for my camera, that's how big it looks there.
    This is seen at one of the scenic pullouts when you head out of Yosemite Valley, going West,
and is one of the last three or so pullouts before you get to the area where Highway 140 and
Highway 41 split.  Highway 41 then leads you up to Tunnel Road and also starts you
on your way to Glacier Point.


The near-dusk lighting here has extreme contrasts, and this site is where a very nice couple
generously showed me, the day before, how to slide their graduated neutral density filter
down against the small camera lens to get both the very blue water and
the higher, brightly lit BridalVeil Falls at Cathedral Rocks.
The filter I bought after the Gallery walk was with me here, so I didn't have to fuss with
bracketing and keeping the camera still during that, although a tripod would have made it easier.
