Yosemite Fall - Springtime

On my 3 June post I had a shot of Yosemite Fall in winter. That February image showed mist in the valley and an ethereal ground fog. This particular shot was taken from about the same spot as the 3 June image, ironically on the same Memorial Day weekend as my 27 April post. It was a nice, warm day in the valley that morning, but as I recounted in April, a snowstorm closed Tioga Pass that night, so the weather was volatile.

In any event, the colors were gorgeous that day. Yes, the grass was really that color of green. It was amazingly vibrant; it almost hurt your eyes to look at it. With the wind blowing the water of the Upper Yosemite Fall and the blue of the sky nearly covered by clouds, it made for a very nice shot.

  1. Lovely shot! With the super-saturated colors, it almost looks like one of Tina's paintings.
