nature photos ~ {yosemite}

It's summertime, the perfect time for camping.  I just returned from Yosemite National Park, where I took some photos.  Mere pictures can't express everything that Yosemite inspires.  Imagining the glaciers carving through the granite, lifting huge boulders, eventually melting and depositing their rocky residue across the valley ... gazing up at cliffs taller than the Empire State ... wading in streams from icy waterfalls and sharing the land with wildlife .... Here are some of the moments I captured through my lens.

Can you find the tiny people on the falls?
