"Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days, inciting at once to work and rest! Days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us Nature. Nevermore, however weary, should one fain by the way who gains the blessings of one mountain day; whatever his fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever."
--- JOHN MUIR, "My First Summer in the Sierra"
Sauntering on Rock Creek Trail eastward into the heart of the Sierra Nevadas reveals meadows for relaxing in between steep climbs.

Fabulous nature's photo, a remarkable old stuff composed, Ray.
Transparency of the water is a great element on photo. Yet, I enjoy the view from the green to the grey snowy mountains.
Impressive and charming landscape picture.

You're capturing well this Rock Creek Trail by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful nature with the small river, meadow, wood and mountain with snow in behind. Here, untouched nature is left behind.

A nice bright image with vivid greens and blues. Excellent composition with all the natural elements nicely situated and framed within your image.
