Merced River Reflections

Merced River Reflections

Huge granite boulders and trees bare of their leaves are reflected in all of their winter beauty in the Merced River, at the entrance of Yosemite National Park in California.

Each time I create a blog post, I am drawn to highlight a photograph for a variety of reasons; sometimes I post a new photograph from a recent trip or an exciting new flower in my garden that has caught my eye, as the newness is what interests me. I find that I am sometimes drawn to a certain color and the subject is less important, or I might want to relive a memory that a particular photograph rekindles for me. Some photographs evoke a certain mood, and ‘Reflections’ is one of those photos. I have had a lot of time to reflect on my life lately, and find this image matches where I am at. The calming neutral tones, still water with perfect reflections, cold winter dormancy, and tranquil subject matter reflect my contemplative state of mind.

      Thank you Sharon! Yosemite can be quite hectic with all the crowds during the summer, but it is an amazing and tranquil place to visit during the winter (as long as you don’t visit during late February, when hoards of photographers descend to try and photograph the Firefall).

    Thank you Priya for the beauty and peace of this photo. In such a busy/crazy world, taking time to reflect on beauty is essential for mental health! Peace to all, Jennavieve “JJ”
