Boulder Reflections, Merced River

El Portal Road, western Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, CA, 10/30/2008

I love visiting Yosemite Valley in the autumn for its colorful foliage and the terrific reflections in the Merced River. Throughout most of the year the Merced moves too rapidly to be used as a reflecting pool, but in autumn its waters are almost perfectly still, as can be seen here. This is the view looking south across the river just a short walk west of the Pohono Bridge. I was attracted by the abstract qualities of this scene: the angular boulder, leaning tree, and their mirror image below.
