I can never get enough of the awe-inspiring beauty that is Yosemite National Park. Everywhere you look in the park you will find unbelievable beauty on display. A couple summers ago, I hiked the 8.9 mile Panorama Trail from Glacier Point. Along the way I would stop to take photos to try to capture the amazing scenery all around. As I came up the switchback laden hill from Illilouette Falls, I saw the potential for one of my future paintings and began capturing shots that I could use to compose the scene I was envisioning. I especially loved how the water falling from Nevada Fall looked so refreshing and inviting as it tumbled into the bed of trees below with the mist billowing upward. Every time I visit this park I see something new and remain in awe of its grandeur.
