The least crowded and very scenic time to visit Yosemite Valley is winter, especially after a snow storm with the sun returning.
In this view the upper portion of Yosemite Falls is mirrored in the Merced River. These Falls are in 3 sections with a total length of 739 meters (2,425 feet)
Making Yosemite Falls the longest in North America.

Very specific weather conditions to be able to make this shot. Winter will probably already scare off a number of interested people. And go to the national park to await a snowstorm until the sun returns ...
Well, you did it ... and the result is a brilliant and impressive shot!
A bright and sharp picture of this wonderful natural scenery with excellent reflections in the water.
Best regards, Paul

Thanks to your post I am visiting this famaous park, without moving from home
Best time of course after snow and also best time to take photos of good contrast with the sky and waters
Like the vertical format, well done
So you like old buses? good to encourage public transic, more ecological than cars
Must contac each other in YT

Wow this one's a cracker. You;ve really outdone yourself here. The reflections and symmetry and top notch and I love the chromatic rendering. Sensational texture and definition.
Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend

this is a magnificent natural scenery, the snow and the light at the time of the capture make it even more stunning and special. I like very much your rewarding composition and the way you captured the suggestive beauty of the setting in the reflections as well. The textures and the colours are wonderful, the bright snow illuminates the whole frame and makes it so vibrant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

A very impressive mountain! This is a view I have always wanted to see, but it looks like this will never happen. I have to enjoy this excellent picture!

Another idea for the wallpaper ;)) Excellent shot, great presentation of the nature. This view makes me a cognitive dissonance, 'cause they said about very dry weather in California again.

Beautiful! So majestic and yet so peaceful winter scene. Love the reflections. Good lighting and sharp details. Very well done, tfs.
Next time you're in Vegas explore the Spring Mountain Ranch (15 miles west) and Cold Creek (40 miles NW off 95) to see wild mustangs.

Cheers for this beauty, enjoy a nice sunday,
