“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” John Muir

An amazing week in Yosemite led to this lead image (one of six) to be honored by IPOTY.

As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing

The Sierras can either stop your heart or remind you that it is there. On the way to Bishop, California I was blessed with this scene.

Merced Morning – Yosemite


The Merced River, in the central part of California, is a 145-mile  tributary of the San Joaquin River flowing from the Sierra Nevada. It is most well known for its swift and steep course through the southern part of Yosemite National Park and the world-famous Yosemite Valley. The river’s character changes dramatically once it reaches the foothills and the lowlands, becoming a slow-moving waterway meandering through irrigated fields.
