Scenes from Yosemite....
These images truly took my breath away; I do love the mountains and the streams, The springs and the snow. With all the trappings of men, These scenes are yet pristine and clear. It takes me to when the rivers’ flow Was not dammed and broken. In my dreams I take the unfrequented ways Filled with flowers, Nature’s token Of benison for creatures here. It was not a time when Man had left his mark on the lands, Or wandered over the country in large despoiling bands. These images make me sleep… And dream of Paradise that’s still ours to keep. Nature’s not kind, but always fair; Those who are the fittest can survive… Breathe the free, pure air, Flourish, and thrive.
Storm gathering beyond Olmsted Point
Tree growing on granite at Olmsted Point
No photographs can do justice to Nature’s majesty….
