There’s a special spot along the Merced River in Yosemite where, in the late autumn with the river flowing so gently, the reflections are really quite special.
This image is just one example – a monochrome from 3 bracketed images shot with my Canon 5D Mark II back in the fall of 2010. My son David and I spent a very special day with Michael Frye and he took us to this spot as the sun was rising. It was early October when we were there. The river was beautifully calm, like glass, and the sun was just lighting up Three Brothers as we clambered down to the water’s edge with our tripods.
A wonderful memory – one we’ll never forget.
Sometimes, when I’m trying to relax, I try to think about places like this – quiet beauty at Lake Tahoe, the majesty of Yosemite in autumn – it just doesn’t get much better than this.
