"The tendency nowadays to wander in wilderness is delightful to see. Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity, and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life."
--- JOHN MUIR
This image is of Cold Water Creek, which can be followed by hiking the trail from the far end of Lake Mary (yesterday's post). It is a short saunter, less than a mile to the glacier carved Emerald Lake. One may also venture deeper into the John Muir Wilderness beyond.

I always over expose the kinds of shots, so have a true appreciation for when one works as beautifully as this. The colors are excellent through the rocks, and the gushing water is like flowing silk. Who could not feel they are home when encountering a scene like this.

Actually this water does look a little fresco fresco! I hope you didn't do like I inevitably do and either fall or dive in. The slow shutter has worked a treat and I like the bluish caste you got, which contrasts with the yellowish tones. I don't often see slow shutter / low light stuff from you. This makes me want to see more.
Have a lovely, saunter-ful weekend
