Yosemite Bridge

One of the bridges in Yosemite Valley section of Yosemite National Park in California.  I’ve always heard it referred to as the “wee bridge.”  This bridge is located near Yosemite Falls.

Yosemite Valley’s Vernal Falls in late July, 2009. A wee bit of post processing was done.

The post processing was done right on the iPhone, and then posted to flickr from the very same iPhone.

Why did the turkeys cross the road?

As far as I could tell, they wanted to get to the other side.

There was a storm coming into the valley, complete with Thunder and Lighting. Yes, there were people on the cables on Half Dome at that point.

Lost


This photography shows a slice of history. That tree was up in the Yosemite High Country, near Tiago Pass. It would see it and photography it during my fairly frequent trips to Yosemite.

This year it was gone. I don’t know what happened to it.
It was a plucky little tree growing in between some rocks at the edge of a meadow.

All that remains are my photographs of it.

This photograph is in my book Yosemite: A State of Mind.
