What a Performance!

Walking back to the bridge, you get a very dramatic view of the upper Yosemite Falls. We’ve spent hours just watching and listening to this might body of water as it crashes on the rocks below. Some winters, the cone at its base soars way up into the falls.

At this time, the cone is basically gone. I wonder if it’s this fact that we got the most amazing rainbow I’ve ever seen. It stretched as you can see down the falls and up the next slope. Simply spectacular!

I keep going back and forth which I like better, the foreground slope in shadow or not. I think I’ll print them up 24×30 and stare at them for a while. It was a spectacular site and I am very grateful we had the opportunity to be there to see it.
