13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

Yosemite Valley is especially breathtaking in the spring when the waterfalls come to life. On this day, it threatened to rain and thunder all day, but the storm never came. This scene, with its varied subtle color palette looks to me like an exquisite oil painting.
