Horsetail Fall, Natures Firefall
As the sun continues setting, and ever after it sets, the water can warm in color, sometimes turning a deep crimson. That didn't happen on my outing to photograph the fall, however I'm not going to complain about what I saw and what I was able to photograph.
Horsetail Fall on Fire at Sunset
For a few minutes at the end of the day, during the last two weeks of February, Horsetail Fall can turn to gold. The dramatic color comes when the sun sets at an oblique angle to the flow of water.

Along Northside Road - When A Color Photograph is Black and White
I used to think the only worthwhile photographs of nature were those that were far from civilization. Then I thought nature photographs had to exclude signs of civilization, even if they were made near a road or buildings or dams or whatever. I used to believe I had to use a tripod to make a photograph I would like.

Snow Sublimating on Yosemite Chapel
With my lens at telephoto mode, and the help of the sun behind the snow, I could literally see solid objects turn to vapor. I'm not religious, but there was something religious about the transformation I witnessed taking place at a house of worship, in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Cascade at the Mountain Bar
Snow from the previous day (and night's) storm melted off in torrents from the roof of the Mountain Bar, where we'd taken temporary shelter, to play "Catafanga Scrabble" (don't ask) and partake of various libations. I was demonstrating some point about photography, without concern for the subject, when I realized I had one, even if I was sitting on a stool in a bar.
