Gorgeous image Ann. Textures in the rocks really showup with an overcast sky. Good composition and lighting. #1386274

Thank you much for the feedback ... appreciated as always!
I liked this for contrasting textures of granite, cloud, pine, water and even the light.
Only a few more to post in this series ... then off to Lassen Volcanic NP for another experience with my Canon #9466748

Good luck at Lassen. I have never been there. Looking forward to your posts.

Our next trip will be back to Alaska in Spetember for fall colors and primarily Bear Viewing. I have several backcountry trips planned, so I hope to get some nice images of the bears fishing for salmon. #9467654

What a beautiful view and composition! Lovely lighting for the textures in the mountains and love the low lying clouds. Just stunning.
Your whole gallery is outstanding, some beautiful places. You must live in a lovely area! #9467846

Hello Mary, thank you for your kind comments.
Yes, I'm fortunately blessed to live in central California ... it's beautiful here in the wine country, but I'm pretty much 2 hours in any direction to some spectacular country.
My intention is to visit as many of our country's national parks before I leave this Earth. #9467913

Opposite the Tunnel View at Yosemite.

This scene caught my eye walking back to the car, maybe because the sun came out for a few minutes to light it up.
