... Life is But a Dream ... [C_009244ps]

... gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.

   

Or so it came to my mind as I scrambled around in this slightly tricky footing scenario at Whitney Portal.

 

I *did* do some on scene clean up - I removed a stick from the middle of the stream... and in so doing I unknowingly splashed a drop of water on the polarizing filter.

 

To clean up the latter problem which cause a blurred area at the lower left, I had to use the same vista from the photo before I splashed the lens. Fortunately I took about a dozen frames here.

 

For a shot from just up the creek (and with a paddle) see Harold Davis's Lone Pine Creek.

 

By the way, for those who are smitten with creeks and waterfalls, this location is perhaps 10 miles at most from our Alabama Hills Star Circle Workshop on November 5th through 7th, 2010!
