Rocky Adventures!
26-OCT-2008 Sandi Whitteker

Rocky Adventures!

Yosemite, California

I won't forget taking this pic. We were way back up in the rocks for this shot, when one of our group
started screaming "What do I do to make this bear go away?" (it was 10 feet from her at this point), then
the leader of our workshop taking a hard tumble in the rocks, in haste to help her. Quite the exciting day!

First Place, 111th Show and Tell Contest, "Moving Water"

Great picture! Love the isolated leaf very sharp and the softness of the waterfall.
Steve Sharp12-Jan-2009 17:37
I think quite a few people try this sort of shot, but not many, if any, do it as well as this one (hope the bear went away without incident!)

a little great wonder
splendid synthesis of beauty of the natural elements, water, cliff, vegetation
I like the softness of the water and the hardness of the rock together

How beautiful is that leaf!
Gaétan Bolduc12-Jan-2009 04:17
Extraordinary shot. I assume you were using a solid tripod, no trace of hand shaking in this photo due to the proximity of the bear.
