Artist's Description

Yosemite National Park, California
USA
January, 2009

A two shot vertical panorama shortly after dawn of the upper falls. Note the “Ice Beard” on the granite cliff face around the falls which only lasts a short while after the sun hits the high granite cliffs.

Yosemite Falls is the highest measured waterfall in North America. The total 739 metres (2,425 ft) from the top of the upper falls to the base of the lower falls qualifies Yosemite Falls as the sixth highest waterfall in the world, though with the recent discovery of Gocta Cataracts, it appears on some lists as seventh.

  1. Upper Falls: The 436 metres (1,430 ft) plunge alone is among the twenty highest waterfalls in the world.
  2. Middle Cascades: Between the two obvious main plunges there are a series of five smaller plunges collectively referred to as the Middle Cascades. Taken together these account for a total drop of 205 metres (673 ft), more than twice the height of the Lower Falls.
  3. Lower Falls: The final drop is 97 metres (318 ft).
