I know that it's quite the opposite of spring right now, but I came across this image and decided that I needed to post it before I forget about it again.

My dad and I were spending the afternoon hiking around the Mirror Lake Loop. Dogwood were just peaking but since it was the afternoon on a "beautiful", clear, sunny day; finding a photogenic tree was proving to be a challenge. We happened to spot this small tree early on in the hike, but didn't have much luck further on. Luckily for us, Yosemite is never dissapointing and there is a never bad time spent with my dad.



  1. Could be titled 'Dancing Flowers' ;) It also looks as an overlayed sequence of falling flowers, the individual flower stems being almost invisible. Very nice

  2. Jeff and Bartek,

    Hi to you both, and thanks for jumping in.

    I agree Bartek, the image does have certain grace and flow that looks like the blooms are dancing through the frame. When I saw this tree, that was exactly what came to mind and what I was trying to show. So I'm glad it translated.
