Impressionist Reflections

We saw a great art show while in Yosemite--"Yosemite Renaissance"
 I was inspired to try something a bit different.
Soft light and ripples in the water allowed me to make some interesting, almost painterly, images of the reflections in the Merced River.  
Follow the link above to see what the creative artists of "Yosemite Renaissance" did last year in a variety of mediums.  If you find yourself in Yosemite between now and May 5, stop and see the current exhibit at the museum.  You might find yourself inspired as I did.

See more reflections at Weekend Reflections, hosted for us by James

What a wonderful part of the world - I arrived there by night, under a full Moon! I'll never forget it!

Gorgeous reflections captured excellently in your lens. I'm so glad to see reflections, since so many folks aren't sticking to the theme of the meme!

When I saw your starry night shot, I thought I was there that evening. My friends and I were at the Sentinel Bridge to shoot the moon because of a tip we got from one of the photographers. Although I did not have any night shot, it was a bit cold for me and I did not bring my tripod. I always travel light, when carpooling with other photographers.

We might have been at Yosemite at the same time, the President;s long weekend.

I love reflections in the water!!
