"Eternal Vernal"

After photographing a brilliant sunrise in Yosemite from the river I headed up to hike the two waterfalls that were actually still gushing still (very dry year this 2012). While still much later in the morning than I would have normally gone I figured why not and off up the trail. Climbing a decently steep trail one eventually gets to the Vernal Fall bridge where a glimpse of this monster can be seen. Heading further up the trail there was a gap in the forest and down to the river to explore closer. BAM! What a sight to be seen. Rushing in to action I quickly set up and then moved closer to a rock that caught my eye. The backlit mist and the tree in the distance made for a powerful scene. Was just lucky to be there to catch this ephemeral scene!

Thanks!

OMG!! So jealous. I hiked this same trail a few weeks ago. We stopped at the point where the mist was heaviest - not wanting to get our cameras water logged. I have been wondering what we missed... this is a great shot. I love the back lighting. Very nice capture indeed!
