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.
This post is a contribution to Fandango’s Flashback Friday. Have you got a post you wrote in the past on this particular day? The world might be glad to see it – either for the first time – or again if they’re long-time loyal readers.

Absolute beauties, Jude. I particularly like the first 2 that just suck me in and make me feel as though I’m there.
Have you been there? I imagine with all the travelling you do there are not many places you haven’t seen.
Wonderful photos. I’m glad to have been there yet it wasn’t enough.
What a stunning place! Must be amazing to go there!
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.
Just fabulous. It’s great how through blogging we’re able to re-vitalise our own memories. No other readers strictly necessary!
Very true. I am enjoying my own virtual journeys ☺️
You have taken me straight back there, it is a stunning place. One of these days I hope to re-visit
Doubt I’ll get back there. Any long-haul is going to be to Australia and New Zealand.
