Brief Directions

The shot was taken at the Glacier Point lookout, about 8,000 feet above Yosemite Valley with a panoramic view of the valley, flanked by the mountain range.

Notes

I realize that one shouldn't place an object smack in the middle of a shot, but I wanted to separate the two waterfalls with an object that gave a perspective of the distance.

Description

Of all Yosemite's natural features, perhaps the waterfalls are the most popular - some appear like silver slivers, cascading thousands of feet. This is a shot of Vernal and Nevada Falls, which were created when glaciers produced, packaged and manipulated rock formations resembling a stairway fashion. May is an ideal month to witness the numerous falls since the water dries up during the summer months.
