"In the spring, after all the avalanches are down and the snow is melting fast, it is glorious to hear the streams sing out on the mountains. Every fountain swelling, countless rills hurry together to the rivers at the call of the sun - beginning to run and sing soon after sunrise, increasing until toward sundown, then gradually failing through the cold frosty hours of the night. ... At the height of flood, they seem fairly to shout for joy, and clash their upleaping waters together like clapping hands; racing down the canyons with white manes flying in glorious exuberance of strength, compelling huge sleeping boulders to wake up and join in the dance and song to well their chorus."
--- JOHN MUIR, Our National Parks
In this view, the Yosemite Falls are mirrored in the Merced River.

This is the place I definitely want to visit.I like the way you have combined the mountain, the land and the water in one. The green color is very pleasing to the eyes. Very nice reflection, I see the stream flowing from the top of the mountain. Looks like a very quiet place.

Hooo ya! Another great photo! You were on fire here Ray, this series of photos are really magnificent and certainly among your best. Again I love the cool green tones, this time with a good blue sky to contrast against. The reflections and feeling of tranquillity add so well to the idea of just sitting here, reading a book and going fishing. Wonderful shot.
Have a happy day

Hello Ray, Excellent reflection image of Yosemite Falls in the Merced river. The soft muted greenish colors work well here. Excellent choice of vertical format here to accentuate the height of the falls and the mountains. Wonderful notes with the quote from John Muir so that anyone traveling to this area can get a real feel for what being outside in nature can bestow onhtem.
