Rainy day on the Merced - Yosemite National Park, California
I was soaked from hiking across the field opposite El Capitan in a full downpour but I finally arrived on the banks of the Merced with the only thing dry being the camera.
Should have thought to bring my hiking boots but the tennis shoes had to
make due. I had come for the color in Yosemite Valley and though the
dogwoods were not quite ready many of the trees were putting on a bright
yellow show. The Merced was a deep green which contrasted nicely against
the trees that had turned. If you view the image at full size you can make
out the drops from the rain in the rifer.
