Quite a few years ago (about 1979) Ansel Adams produced a book titled "Yosemite and The Range of Light." Although one can never really know all his reasons for choosing this title a visit to Yosemite will reveal at least one reason. Every minute the light changes and the magnificent view before you changes as well... there is no 'bad' time or light in Yosemite.
This is 'Bridal Veil Falls' 620 feet high (189M)
Thank you all so much for tolerating such an erratic contributor (addict).

Uihhhhhhhhhhhhhh what a glorious scenery! It's a dream to see how you handle your camera! I love the light and contrast between the two mountain chains! Also the "tiny" forest on the foot of the mountain looks glorious! What a splendid color photography! Thanks for sharing with us! BIG VOTE

Exquisite photography Paul! Truly stunning and gorgeous work! One of my favorite hiking places on Earth too! And rafting, and camping, and rockclimbing, and photographing, and biking, and... well you get the idea! This is certainly one of the finest photographs I've seen of this magnificent site, from this vantage point! Bravo! Have a most splendid day Sir!

Your gallery is full of fine shots and your subject is always chosen with a great sensuality for the highlights of nature !

Absolutely stunning! Funny thing is I just heard of this place- since I'm getting married I guess that they do something really unique with their postage, and brides around the world send their invites to Bridal Veils Post Office.. Just some useless triva. Best, G.
