Glimpsing Yosemite - Raymond Marlow Photography



The walk was brisk as I worked my way up the switchbacks to get a glimpse of Upper Yosemite Falls. Eventually the trail gave in and I found myself in a familiar area awaiting my move down the wall and towards a settling area to hit the image. My intention was to capitalize on a spot I had found the winter before where I had encompassed both Halfdome and the Upper falls in the image. Try as I might I couldn't find the spot so had to go up higher and try to shoot both from a different vantage point. To make a long story short no matter what location I found I wasn't getting both icons in the image so settled on just shooting the Upper falls. The lighting added up to some nice shadows on the wall and a glancing spray water rainbow on the ground.

"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old."
