The serene Merced flows across the Yosemite Valley floor, a distant relative to the massive and powerful glaciers that once carved from the Sierras this magnificent wonder. Half Dome towers another 5,000 feet above, the park’s enduring symbol of the grand scale at which the wilderness is shaped by the hand of nature.
“The beauty of Yosemite Valley overwhelms me,” say Denis Milhomme of Majestic Serenity. “The majesty of Half Dome bathed in mid-morning light and reflected in the calm Merced River is wonderful. The deep shadows cast by the tremendous cliffs nearby add to the drama of this moment.”
