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. Okay, my closest place this would be 500 miles away in Snowdonia I reckon. Last I went there 2009 for a camping trip. Used to love climbing and camping there.

  1. Never been there but have read enough, and heard enough, to know that your images are a great representation of what is there. Brilliant photos.

  2. I managed to miss this first time around Jude — so thank you. A wholly appropriate use of “awesome” (a word I’m terribly guilty of uttering)

    1. Ah, those Americanisms that seem to dominate the English language. In fact my eldest granddaughter in Canberra sounds more like an American than an Australian!
