This is Lower Yosemite Falls, the 320 foot tall final step that Yosemite Creek makes as it takes a 2,425 swan dive over the cliffs in Yosemite National Park. Since it’s just a creek, the falls don’t run year round, but when it’s going in the winter and spring it’s truly spectacular. Mucho thanks to Pixabay where you can find free images for refs or your website or whatever, I loved this angle.
We're going dark this week. The history lesson is The Yosemite Horror, or, ‘Don’t trust handymen at the hotels in Yosemite’ Because you might run into homosexual pedophile kidnappers or misogynist serial killers
But people disappear inside Yosemite park and sometimes, none of the usual suspects can be tagged as the cause. 45 people have vanished in Yosemite without a trace. dcxposed.com/2014/04/27/secret…
despite having the worst web design I’ve literally ever seen, canammissing.com is always riveting and local ex cop David Paulides gives great interviews all over youtube about the weirdness in Yosemite. I recommend skipping the website and searching for his 411 missing project on youtube, it’s creepy as anything and some incredible stories.
It's a bad day for sanity and reason on Eynhallow too.
And very cool viewpoint.
I've been there once
Absolutely accurate dude , nice one
It sounds like Yosemite is hiding aliens!!! Or maybe elves? Or a magic portal? Or... ... ... Wait... why are the nice men here? I've been a good girl. I don't need to go back to the soft place. What did I say?
(seriously, though...) I also raise my glass to the dedicated photographer who made that hike. It doesn't look easy.
I'm really thankful for all the information and links~
Hey, I'm not trying to be a pest, but I wanted to point out that calling Kenneth Parnell homosexual doesn't seem to be supported by the contents of his wikipedia page and propagates a harmful myth that homosexuality and pedophilia are linked. I don't see any evidence that he preferred adult men, and he even married and had children with two different women (bisexuality/pansexuality is a thing, but the article didn't mention any consensual adult male lovers). The fact that he molested boys doesn't make him homosexual because boys do not have the sexual traits of adult men and the vast majority of men attracted to men are not attracted to boys. Additionally, rape often has little to do with sexuality and more to do with power and violence. Even for those who believe they can truly love children, attraction to children is something altogether separate from attraction to adults of any gender.
That aside, I love this picture. I think you paint very beautiful landscapes. Some of your landscapes seem to come from a personal connection to the location because of the way you compose them and the sense of mild isolation, for lack of a better way of putting it. Basically, I get a feeling of one of those unique places you find as a child that becomes a place of comfort and good memories, though the locations you paint are often a lot more grand and beautiful. And where you rely on reference images taken by others, you're good at picking interesting references.
