Hello, my friends!
Today I'd like to show you 3 photos from the Yosemite Park. See in WS two alternate images.
Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks in the Sierra Nevada, and the park supports a diversity of plants and animals. The park has an elevation range from 2,127 to 13,114 feet (648 to 3,997 m) and contains five major vegetation zones: chaparral/oak woodland, lower montane forest, upper montane forest, subalpine zone, and alpine. Of California's 7,000 plant species, about 50% occur in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% within Yosemite. There is suitable habitat or documentation for more than 160 rare plants in the park, with rare local geologic formations and unique soils characterizing the restricted ranges many of these plants occupy.

I have yet to see many US National Parks, there are so many of them and this one looks fantastic too.
I love the way the lines sort of come down on an angle, and the clouds do the same.
wonderful nature shot Serghei.
Wish I were here too.

Hello, a great image seen from Tunnel View looking into the valley. You saw a lot of California when you were here. Wonderful colors and perfect composition with El Capitan and Half Dome in view.

A majestic landscape beautifully captured here. I like the light and colours very much and those lovely swirling clouds. Superb clarity and depth.

Mighty mountains of Yosemite, always impressive.
I like your point of view, capturing the curvy valley, where the clouds seem to follow the shape of the mountains. Clever way to frame the scene with the tree on one side and the high part of the mountain on the other.
Have a nice weekend!

lovely view of the location with superb exposure and sharpness. The vegetation in the foreground makes a lovely frame and the waterfall in the distance the perfect focal point. Your note is both interesting and informative.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Have a great weekend.

I dream of seeing landscapes like this Serghei, how beautiful and wild it looks. Your shot shows the park under excellent light and with soft colours which I like very much. A magical location.
Have a fine weekend

I like the gentle, roughly parallel curves made by the trees, the mountain-ridge and the clouds. They make this a very nicely balanced composition. The view as such, regardless of curves, is spectacular, and the same goes for the ws photos. Especially I like the #2, with the very very small people seen at the foot of the huge trees and the waterfall. Magnificent,

Beautiful landscape, well taken and presented, perfect light capture and sharpness.

Fine wide angle scene of Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View. Perhaps the location most visitors first glimpse of the National Park. And your image emphasizes the dense forest which is everywhere in the Park.
My favorite time to photograph from here is right after a winter snow storm with the sun breaking through clouds to reveal the Valley's beauty.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Serghei, How lucky you were to see the waterfalls. Yosemite was such a disappointment for me. Good parft of those some millions visitors were just the same day when i was there and the waterfalls were dried up. Gorgeous shot, perfect colours, sharpness, spectacular composition. Marvelous colours of the trees.

Good morning Serghei,
I'm kicking myself for being so close to this site, but have never visited!? Crazy, right? A classic view, and no matter how many times it's been photographed, it deserves a lifetime of attention.
Nature sure does know how to put on some of the best shows, and you've served it well to display it for the masses. This is absolutely gorgeous, you couldn't have planned a better day it would appear...the sky is clear, the sun is shining, and I'm sure there are some birds that were singing. :)
Perfect placement of the waterfall, it's a superb focal point amongst this vast landscape. Well done my dear friend, well done! Enjoy the weekend. Take care.
Cheers from the desert Southwest,

Beautiful landscape! You were lucky that there was water during your visit to Yosemite, the river was dry on my visit. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
Sedona is about 120 miles, or 2 hour drive, from Phoenix.

The length of the valley is giving depth to the composition. It is well divided, the sky, the mountains and the valley. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the mountains. Have a nice day.

I really do not know if I someday travel again to the U.S., but if ... then this place is one of the places I'll be looking at, that's for sure.
A grandiose nature, very welcoming captured, very well done!
All the best from Sweden

I ever saw images from this place from the classical POV, I guess this angle is something different and more wider, we can have an idea how the place is. I intend to see it by myself in few weeks. very nice image.TFS.
