Lower Yosemite Falls, The Short One

In Yosemite Valley, there is an easily accessible path to the base of Lower Yosemite Falls. Anyone can walk or ride up to the base of the falls, and get a great view of the drop. You can even wander out onto the boulders that have fallen from the sheer cliff face if you dare, and get almost directly under the spray. I'm sharing a series of four shots with you, each one with the camera zoomed out just a little bit farther to give you a slight sense of how big even this small section of the waterfall is. Keep your eye on the people on the rocks at the base of the falls. I believe the total drop of just this section of the falls is a little over 300 feet! The water appears to be moving in slow motion because it takes so long to fall.
