Water Colors

My friend Rosemarie asked if I am weary photography trips to Yosemite each year. I am not. Yosemite always has something novel to offer me. There is always something I haven't seen before, new ways to think about who I am, and a deeper understanding of my place in the world.

This photograph is a flipped and upside-down image of what I saw in reflection in the waters of the Merced River: the trees along the bank, Yosemite Falls in the background, a sense of color and movement. Some of me is in there, and now some of you, too.

This is just lovely. It's wonderful what we see when we truly open our eyes...

Wow that is phanomenal. I love the idea. I thought that you might applied the ripples, until you told us how you went about this photo. Great idea. V.

The waterfall looks as it is pouring from the sky itself, Dave. It offers a striking contrast to its painterly landscape context.

I like this shot very much. So Impressionistic!
