Tenaya, and Snow Creeks

Yosemite National Park


Junction of Tenaya and Snow Creeks, Yosemite National Park, California

Snow Creek, on the left, flows into Tenaya Creek here, and Tenaya then goes on to empty into Mirror Lake, in Yosemite National Park. This peaceful scene is a moderate hike past the lake. The pale yellow winter light before sunset barely illuminates the sky. A very slow shutter speed allows the light to build up in the cascades of the creek. The warm grays of the rocks contrast nicely with the flow of the creeks, the browns and greens of the forest, and the snow in the foreground.
