Trying to escape the reality of my life, I ran away to an old favorite place. Late in the afternoon, the light falls the mountain tops and highlights Bridal Veil Falls. El Capitan is shadowed on the right and deep down the valley, Half Dome catches a bit of light.
Late spring is my favorite time to visit here, the Dogwood trees are blooming and the leaves are all fresh, the falls are at their fullest and the valley is not yet overwhelmed with visitors.

i'm glad to see you in the site after your long absence from it,with this superb scenery from the Bridal Veil falls.I like this panoramic view with the trees to cover the whole place and the falls on the right to be the eye catching of the image.
Excellent view and presentation.

Hello Pat ,
Nice to see you back to TE !
With a large part of the deep valley in the shade , it was not easy to expose the picture . You've id it very well . This moutain landscape is truly fantastic . I like the water fall as a focal point .

This one is a real winner with the endless mountain tops creating a marvelous sense of depth.
The light is superb giving the whole vista a soft feeling of tranquility.
The famous falls is the icing on the cake.
My daughter and her family were out there a few years ago and they loved it.
PS Thank you for your birthday wishes on Facebook.
Warm Regards, Tom

un endroit mythique avec une des plus belles cascades du globe et le POV permet vraiment de voir d'où elle vient et ce qui l'entoure. Des lumières parfaites sous un très beau ciel.

This is really a classic POV from Yosemite. I love the soft light from the late after noon. the valley is well exposed even in the shadow. Good depth and nice details. It is certainly a place that allow you to escape from the busy life in the city.
Excellent photo with great POV and composition.
