The Mist Trail in California's Yosemite National Park takes hikers upstream along the Merced River's tumble east toward the valley. The walk winds forward and back past several beautiful waterfalls, culminating at the top of the most impressive one of all, Nevada Falls.
This is the view from as close as one could get to the top of the falls without getting arrested. It shows the view down into Yosemite Valley and the path along which one walks to get to this awesome view.

( Here is a video about how I came to SEE faeries (Buddhist devas) after seeing a film about them. I came to know, love, and communicate with these beings of light. I get a lot from interacting with them. I wrote a book. You can ask a question. - F.J.M.

Wisdom: Befriending Faeries
Shooting with an ultrawide lens makes things look farther away, so the sound from this spot was a frightening roar of the water cascading over the edge a few feet away. In fact, we had to lean forward (carefully) so that lens did not include dusty shoes in the photo.

This image is a composition of two horizontal frames shot in landscape -- one frame pointing 45 degrees down, the other pointing straight toward the horizon. Each of the frames is composed of three separate photos taken at different exposure settings to capture the large variations in brightness (shooting into the sun).
