Dogwood Bloom and Leaves. Yosemite Valley, California. May 7, 2011. © Copyright G Dan Mitchell - all rights reserved.
An early dogwood blossom and leaves in Yosemite Valley, California.
There is not a lot to add to the previous post that came along with the black and white version of this photograph - but for anyone who didn't see the earlier post I'll offer a short description. I had been at the Ansel Adams Gallery reception for Michael Fry's exhibit there in the middle of the afternoon, and after a very enjoyable hour and a half or so viewing his wonderful prints and schmoozing with various folks who came for the reception, I decided to wander off to the east along the base of the north walls of Yosemite Valley, at first heading in the general direction of the Ahwahnee Hotel. Near there I stopped at a tree that I have photographed previously, when I shot the autumn colors of the leaves draped across a large boulder. The new flowers were just starting to appear, so I climbed up on the boulder and spent some time photographing before continuing my wandering out towards the Merced River.
