The landscape in the Yosemite National Park changes considerably. Driving down the winding road from the West side entrance, the view from this pull out was magnificent. Even though this picture was taken at mid-noon, the strong shadows add to the ruggedness of this beautiful place just outside the Yosemite Valley. The bush of yellow flowers jutting out of the rock seems like a bouquet and the shadow fills the space and provides contrast. The distant mountains with slight haze and a swath of hanging clouds in the blue sky were charming. I processed this image in Lightroom CC and then finished in Nik Software to bring out the details in the rocks and sand.
