Last Sunday, for Earth Day, my daughter and I visited the Merced River Canyon. Although a little late in the blooming season, there were a few beautiful patches of lupine and poppies to enjoy. This spot has been a favorite of mine when I lived in El Portal from 1980 to 2000. It felt great to return to my “home” canyon, and it brought back many memories, including some for my daughter when she was very little. When I built my home here near Oakhurst, I used granite boulders from MRC to construct my hearth, to keep the Canyon “near” us everyday.
Here is a new Impressions of Light photograph, made using the Singh Ray Vari-ND filter and simple camera motion. Enjoy and share!
