We stayed in the Yosemite Valley Lodge which is steps away from Yosemite Falls. I used a 6 stop neutral density filter to slow the shutter speed to blur the water on both upper and lower Yosemite Falls in this photograph. Because of the harsh sunlight, I rendered the final image in black and white. The wind blows the water and the water vapor freezes to the granite walls overnight, making a unique pattern on either side of the falls the changes daily. As the sun warms the rock, huge chunks break off with a resounding boom.
