You can't see it because I hiked for two and half hours to reach this point, but the Mather Gorge is just upstream of this picture, just out of range and around a bend in the river.
Lovely shot! I love how the leaves frame the stream, what a great view!
I don't feel my picture offers the true justice that the scene actually looked like. It was almost breathtaking. I stood in awe of the whole scene for moments before actually taking the shot. Part of it may have been because I had to hike to that point so that may have had something to do with it.
