Journey of a body on this earth

Merced River


The Merced River meanders through the Yosemite Valley right near the Ahwahnee Hotel.  It was so amazing to see this amount of snow here!  I wish I could take pictures here every day…but then go home to the “no snow” zone lol.

  1. Words can’t contain this image. Not by a long shot.

  2. “no snow” zone lol.
    no snow here either 😦

  3. Beautiful – I love rivers in winter.

  4. I love the soft touches of sunlight hitting the water… you don’t see photos like this very often. I love it.

  5. Beautiful! And I agree with you on the snow preferences.

  6. Your photo is really special, you are such an amazing artist…There is something truly amazing about the ability to go from no snow around my home to above the tree line where the world is a postcard beautiful winter wonderland.

    • Thank you so much Charlie. I’m so flattered you’d call me an artist. I try! We also here can get to the snow in 2-1/2 hours. When we had our vacation house in the foothills, it was literally about 20-30 minutes away, so I know what you mean. Unfortunately I wasn’t much into photography then. :\

  7. Wonderful framed with the white trees and snow, great contrasts. Wonderful pic!

  8. I don’t want to be a kill joy but somewhere in the valley is petters out to nothing and that’s caused by the constant draining by the farmers, hopeful the drought will change this! I love this picture!

  9. You’re just hitting these images out of the park, Laura.

  10. Wonderful picture..! Great shot..!

  11. This is beautiful. It reminds me of a Thomas Kincaid illustration.
