Turbulent Merced

Yosemite National Park


Turbulent Merced, Yosemite National Park, California

The turbulent waters of the Merced River below Vernal Falls carve through this gorge before entering Yosemite Valley, a bit more sedately, about a mile downstream. The composition of the light tones of the river against the backlit foreground trees and the darker rocks and forest provide a study in contrasts of texture and color. The Merced carries the water from all of Yosemite Valley's spectacular waterfalls.
