John Muir Trail Above Nevada Fall

(order ID # BW35-00006-A9)

This scene is just a few yards from the top of Nevada Fall, an easy dayhike from Yosemite Valley. I am intrigued by strange juxtapositions, and I realized that a wide angle lens would let me get in close to the tree and make it appear to loom over the gargantuan granite cap in the distance. This sets up contrasts of big/small, near/far, soft/hard, and dark/light. I have tried since then to recreate this shot in color, but never successfully. After that, I enjoy making this hike just to get to this spot where I can affectionately pat this tree, now an old friend.
