Необыкновенная фотография!!!FL 250/349

When I passed by HERE last week, Amelia, it still looks pretty much the same. Cheers, Joe

Hi Leif, I appreciate your kind appraisal a lot. Regards to Sweden

Thank you all for your comments and ratings, greetings!

Hi K@rin, ik heb die dag vaak en lang achter allerlei vlinders aan gelopen. Zodra er een wegvloog voordat ik een behoorlijke foto kon schieten, keek ik waar de vlinder heen vloog om dan de plek weer op te zoeken. Uiteindelijk leverde dat een aantal toonbare plaatjes op. Bedankt, groeten Berend

Favorite photographer!!!

Hi Amelia -- thanks for your visit, it is good to hear from you again. I think the headwaters of the Merced river caused the erosion of this and the other mountains that form Yosemite Valley. It is likely that little pieces of the dome came off sporadically, as they still do to this day, but even a 'little piece' can make a big crash, especially if you are in the campground at the base of this rock face. We have heard several big crashes here.

I was most interested in the geology of the range in the background. I was told it was volcanic but it looked as if it was uplifted, and therefore might have even had a limestone capping on the range. There were other jagged peaks, reminding me of some of the limestone caps on the Pyrenees. However it turns out that it is volcanic, but uplifted... so some of my suspicion was right. But I now understand that the range is part of an andesitic volcano from the Miocene period. But on arrival at the vantage point at the end of the day, the ships at the oil refinery berths were also of interest, so being mindful of you, Berend and your maritime environment which I enjoyed, this image was destined for sharing through Panoramio.

Thanks Berend. A nation such as yours must have many many boats of all kinds, but I had not seen these marinas.
