Last light on a November Day in Yosemite overlooking the Merced River. Here I utilized the leaning tree as a counterpoint to the vibrant fall colors which glowed against the cool shadow of the thousands of feet high granite cliffs that makes Yosemite what it is.
How long before the tree falls into the Merced?
This was my very last shot of the day before we headed back on the long road home. I was tired from being up and shooting well before dawn and almost didn’t get out of the car for this one last look out from the ancient stone bridge to see what could be seen. Over time we forget those moments of challenge and are glad we put forth the effort. I was indeed blessed to witness such a spectacular moment in time.
