Half Dome--Weekend Reflections

What's this, an impressionist's painting of Half Dome?
It's backwards!
No, it is Half Dome reflected in Mirror Lake.
We had a wonderful time in Yosemite this week and all of my shots are of incredibly blue skies and raging water. It was Yosemite at its absolute best, I wish you could have been with us.

See more reflections at Weekedend Reflections, hosted for us by James at Newtown Area Photo.

My mother climbed it (of which I only have her word--no pictures, but if it weren't for her lifelong total truthfullness, I would never have thought it.) I do have pictures Dad took of Mirror Lake from 1928. He did not know Mother yet. You are trying to entice me.

Oh I miss Yosemite! Thank you for posting this wonderful and clever reflection, it is indeed hard to discern it at first!

Every time I see Half Dome or any other photo of this amazing place, I think of Ansel Adams and his lifetime achievents and revolutionary works.
