"If We look at the path, we do not see the sky.
We are Earth people on a spirtual journey to the stars.
Our quest, our Earth walk, is to look within,
to know who We are, to see that we are connected to all things,
that there is no spearation, only in the mind."
--- Native American prayer
In this Yosemite high country view is the Merced River, flowing through Tuolumne Meadows. In the background is the majestic granite Lembert Dome.

Such clear water. So beautiful to see, and something I don't see often in this polluted world. I always think how wonderful it would be to live near a river you could drink from, and this looks like such a place. The sun glinting in the lower right adds a touch of magic to the whole thing too, and of course the backdrop is awesome. What a place.
Thanks as always

You're capturing well this nature by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful/peaceful nature with clean river, rich greenery and mountain in back. Here, it seems that untouched nature still remains with clean air. And, the rock in front side draws out a good impact.

I like how your wide angle vertical framing reveals very clear water, and rocky bottom, in relation to that beautiful mountain landscape. Sparkling on the water is just lovely.

The sun shining through this shallow river is very well captured. A very beautiful and pleasant view here. Are there any trout to be caught here?

very pretty view with the river taking the dominating space in the composition. The stones visible through the clear water attract attention in the foreground as well as a tiny bit of grass with some yellow flowers.
The landscape on the second plan is wonderful with the mountains and fir trees and the river leads an eye towards it.
I love the colors of the river which change so much - that adds so much to the picture.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Sunday
