Yosemite Falls

scale great heights with care

where water flows to the ground

with dramatic force

Yosemite Falls, California from Cook’s Meadow in winter

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

      1. Jude sometimes I worry I am developing early onset dementia. Apologies yes that is what I meant. Either dementia or the attention span of a gnat. Either is not great.

        1. I just didn’t want you to end up in Yellowstone and stand there wondering what the hell I had been photographing!

          AND I would like to visit Yellowstone – I hope I do get the opportunity to do that, and then I will be satisfied with my US visits. Their NPs are very, very good.

  1. You’ve been everywhere! Did you scale great heights? It’s a fabulous shot – I find grand scale one of the hardest things to capture. If I were entering a shot it would have to be Stalin’s Gift, still taller than any other Warsaw building.

    1. Haha, not quite everywhere Meg, but I was fortunate to accompany the OH to the US on several winter trips, so I did little add-ons each time to a new place. Rather liked this one 🙂

  2. Ahh…another of my favourites. Magnificant Yosemite, pefect for ‘scale’ this Jude. What could be on a greater scale than this view? Spellbinding, so clever how you got this shot at this distance with the cars in front. They look like ants 🙂

    1. We weren’t that far away either, so I’m glad I managed to get the sense of scale into the photo. It’s awe inspiring to be standing in that meadow with those cliffs all around.
