Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting northern CALIFORNIA, with SAN FRANCISCO, YOSEMITE, SEQUOIA and KINGS NATIONAL PARKS, MONO LAKE, MAMMOTH LAKES, SAN LUIS OBISPO, MORRO BAY, BIG SUR, MONTEREY, CARMEL, the NAPA VALLEY, SACRAMENTO and LAKE TAHOE - From June 21st to July 9th, 2013 - # 047 !
ROADS IN AND OUT OF YOSEMITE VALLEY !
TUNNEL, (MERCED) RIVER & FALLS (BRIDAL VEIL FALLS) !
Highlighted here one of the tunnels of one of the roads to get in the Valley, one of the falls (BRIDAL VEIL FALLS) and the MERCED RIVER.
It was summer! One has to book a stay in the park with some good time in advance and it's not cheap! So I stayed outside the park, in MAMMOTH LAKES. Not too far, not that close! A one hour and a half or even two hour drive, in this case, driving along the margins of MONO LAKE, across the TIOGA PASS and entering the park through its northeastern entrance and enjoying the beauties of the TUOLUMNE MEADOWS, LAKE TENAYA and OLMSTED POINT, among others, for example.
So I took this picture in a place where one can see and have an idea of how one can get in and out of YOSEMITE VALLEY! There are two roads on the left, one of them is pretty close to the river (EL PORTAL ROAD - HIGHWAY 140 - EASTERN ENTRANCE OF THE PARK), down there, and another one a bit higher (BIG OAK FLAT & TIOGA ROADS - HIGHWAY 120 - NORTHEASTERN AND NORTHWESTERN ENTRANCES OF THE PARK)! There is another road on the right (WAWONA ROAD - HIGHWAY 41 - GLACIER POINT - MARIPOSA GROVE), up in the mountains too, in and out of the valley, towards the southwestern entrance of the park! In the distance, one can see the Bridal Veil and start enjoying or missing all the beauty of that Valley!

The plunging point of view is quite spectacular with the falls making an excellent focal point. I like the use of the square frame and the pleasant light and neural colours. The detail in the rock face is very well captured with well rendered textures.

Interesting panoramic view of Yosemite Valley, revealing its massive granite structures and dense forests, with a distant view of Bridalveil.
In good resolution and natural color.
PS: Mammoth is too far away for me as a base-camp for Yosemite. Suggest the Yosemite View Lodge on Highway 140 in El Portal, 5 miles west of the Park's entrance station. Average price excluding summer for a room is $170, not cheap but better than the Valley's accomdations.

Uma vista maravilhosa com todo esse verde. A sensação de a visão subir essa montanha é incrível.

The square format works particularly well, to allow the mountain slope to create a diagonal across the frame, thereby creating a distinct f/g and b/g with the conifers.
It is a spectacular, wild country, enhanced by the tumbling waterfalls and the protruding rocky faces.
Have a great w/e,

Another splendid picture of the Bridal Veil Falls and the impressive surrounding nature.
Perfect sharpness, composition and natural colours.
Best regards, Paul

estava vendo um tour que ia de las vegas, passa pelo vale da morte e chega em SF, isso em meros dois dias e é caro. sei que é pouco tempo, mas não terei muita opção.
linda a foto com a cascata como assunto principal, podemos até ver onde a estrada passa no meio dos penhascos e da mata. lindo lugar e linda foto.
