Flashback Friday #11

This post was published on this day in 2014 for Cee’s Black & White Challenge:  ‘Found in Nature’. And yes, the photos were influenced greatly by  Ansel Adams.


One of the most amazing places that I have been to is Yosemite Valley. The incomparable scenery, soaring cliffs, spectacular views and cascading waterfalls moved me so much that I wrote this piece about my feelings.

Here are a few photos from that natural wonder. I hope they make as much an impression on you as they did on me.

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. You’ve triggered more USA memories with these magnificent photos Jude I like the monochrome treatment,it gives them grandeur. I remember being on the “green tortoise “ bus when they drove us all night while we slept on the converted seats, like sardines in a can, and woke up to the sunrise over this breath taking sight.
