Sentinel Rock

and Merced River

Yosemite National Park


Sentinel Rock, Yosemite National Park, California

This early March view of the Merced River, with Sentinel Rock in the midground, and the base of Sentinel Dome in the background, vividly contrasts the golden colors of the bare branches with the grays of the mountains against the white of the snow. Use of a polarizing filter increases color saturation in the sky, river, and the foreground branches. Yosemite Valley in winter, with fewer tourists, yields a majestic view of the Park.
