Tenaya Canyon, Yosemite

This is a waterfall in the deepest depths of Tenaya Canyon. Only 40' high, this waterfall is at the base of Clouds Rest which rises over 5,000' above. The water is clearest and bluest I have ever seen and it takes hours of hiking and several rappel's to reach this spot.

 Another photo I took from the 1980's showing the alpenglow we used to get. Sunsets like this are far and few between these days due to the central valley smog. This photo has not been altered in any way, scanned Fuji Vlevia 35mm slide.

50 deer and the Tuolumne River, Yosemite 6/11/08

 

I went out to the west end of Tuolumne Meadows the other evening and there were 50 deer, they were every where. This starts out with some of the herd feeding and playing in the meadow. Then I follow the Tuolumne River downstream towards Glen Aulin next to some cascades heavy with snow melt run off.

Yosemite's famous Jeffrey Pine on Sentinel Dome

Yosemite's famous Jeffrey Pine on Sentinel Dome, whose poetic beauty and unique, wind-swept formation made it one of the most photographed trees in the park. The gnarled tree, photographed by Carleton Watkins in 1867 and later made famous by Ansel Adams, had stood dead since a severe drought in 1977. It finally fell sometime between Aug. 9 and 11.
