Skywatch Friday, Weekend Reflection, Today's Flower: Yosemite Fall

It was the second day of our Yosemite trip. Dave Wymen and Ken Rockwell took us to walk around the Merced river in the very early morning. The frost from the night was just start melting. We could see the morning dew on the spider web of the half frozen wild flowers. Can you see the image inside of the water droplet? It is the Yosemite Fall.

Here is how the Yosemite Fall looks like, not through the water droplet but from the reflection of the water pool of the Merced river.

Here is how the whole scenery looks like, the real thing and the reflection.

We could see Yosemite Fall from most part of the Valley. The early mist was now gone and the sky was crystal blue, the day turned out to be a very fine day.

The reflection in the droplet is a wonderful capture. I also like how you have caught all the other drops of water lined up along the cobweb. Wonderful photograph.

Great sequence. I love them all. The one with just the reflection is really interesting - almost like a painting.

Oh my gosh that first photo is spell binding, especially when enlarged. Fantastic! In fact all your photos are absolutely splendid. I went to Yosemite 30 years ago and these make me want to go back. Thanks so much for sharing.
