p.1 #1 · Yosemite Bridalveil Fall "Snow Cone"


The other day I posted a scene of a lovely afternoon rainbow across Bridalveil Fall and noted the reasonably large "snow cone" at its base.

While not the equal of the Yosemite Falls cone, I decided to hike up the short, steep access to the base of Bridalveil to have a look.

I went prepared with all my waterproofing and a "rain coat" for the camera since I've taken my share of cold drenchings up there before.

Fortunately, the winds were blowing the water mostly toward the rock face and not back onto the visitors viewing area. Thus, for the first time in recent memory, the visitor's location was nearly all dry. That was a treat in the 38-degree weather!

Not being as foolhardy as some, I did not scramble up amongst the boulders for a better angle.

So, while the full size of the cone is not entirely apparent here it was impressive never-the-less.

Hey Chaz,

What a nice different look here. It is amazing that you didn't get wet shooting it, that had to be a strange experience.

I like it Chaz and can make out a face on the left side of the cliff face.

Thanks, Bob. Appreciated. And, like you, I'm delighted with the very minimal amopunt of sharpening needed with the D800E. It's my dream camera.

Now, if only Nikon will refresh their tilt/shift line I will be satisfied.

My wife just said ;"another lens?" upon seeing my new 70-200 f4. Now you start to talk about tilt/shift?!!!! It may come, but so far I don't feel the need to get this lens. Why? even for landscapes, rarely I feel the need to get every thing in the picture sharp. Do I miss any thing here?
BTW, in a month D800e will be shooting Victoria falls! So stay tuned!

BTW, about the timing of this picture: you took it at 3.20 PM. I wish you wait there till 4.30 PM you would have gotten the rainbow as a bonus to your excellent image.
