Lower Yosemite Falls
As I approached Yosemite Falls, it could be heard from a great distance away. An unusually heavy snowmelt gave the falls incredible power. As I neared the bottom, I could see that the spray had brought out the wonderful textures of the surrounding rock, as if it was polished. I think this picture is as much about granite surfaces as it is about water.
