Watery Wednesday / The Merced River at Yosemite National Park, California USA

Our hotel room was right on the Merced River just outside the west gate of Yosemite National Park in El Portal.
I took these photos from our second level balcony in the early morning on March 25, 2010.
We left our window open about 2" during the night so we could hear the roar of this mighty river.
It was in the 30's outside overnight but, we stayed warm inside.

I love to watch the Merced River during the spring when it roars and roars. And dipping my toes in its icy waters is a thrill in itself.

Superb capture.

These are wonderful. One of these days I'm going to learn how to do this effect.

Gorgeous! I could hear the roar and strong rush of flow! Every photo is a favorite.

P.S. The Salt Lake was a surprise find. We did not know it existed until we drove by on our home thru Joshua Tree and 29 Palms.

These are fabulous. They exude so much movement and power. Your shots of Yosemite are making me envious. I'm supposed to go there in May...can't wait! Thanks for visiting my sandpipers.
