The Giant Sequoia Trees, Yosemite #6
"In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks." by John Muir.

The Giant Sequoia Trees, Yosemite #6

The Giant Sequoia Trees, Yosemite #6 There are three different groves of Giant Sequoia trees in Yosemite National Park. The Mariposa Grove in Yosemite is the easiest to get to and the most visited, and it has about 500 Giant Sequoias.  It's astonishing, amazing, spectacular, massive, and stunningly beautiful.   The Merced Grove and the Tuolumne Grove are smaller and not as easy to get to than the Mariposa, but definitely are worth the hike.   "In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks." by John Muir.-.   The oldest Giant Sequoia tree is estimated to be over 3,000 years old, and the tallest is estimated to be over 275 feet high (the equivalent of a 20-24 story high rise, or almost half as tall as the Prudential building in Boston.)  Standing next to a Giant Sequoia makes you feel as big as an ant by comparison.  Most people just stare at them with their jaws open in complete awe of their massiveness and incredible beauty.  This photograph is many years old.  I left the person in the photograph just so you had a better perspective of the Giant Sequoia's immense size.TO ORDER:  All prints will be a better quality and the water mark will be removed.  (FYI - This is an older photograph.  The larger prints tend to be  a little grainy the larger you go.)  You can order this printed on paper, canvas, wood, or metal; and framed or unframed.  You can also order this printed on many different items such as on t-shirts, coffee mugs, cards, large towels, throw pillows, masks, shower curtains, and many more items by clicking on this link -  https://pixels.com/profiles/nl-galbraith     or at -     https://www.nlgalbraithfineart.com

Yosemite’s Vernal Falls On The Mist Trail, Yosemite #2

Yosemite's Vernal Falls On The Mist Trail, Yosemite #2 Hiking to the falls on the Mist Trail, the hike gets louder and louder the closer one gets to the 317' drop of Vernal Falls. The wind carries the mist from the waterfalls onto the hiker's adjacent path so the steep rock hewn steps up to the falls can be slick in parts. Prepared hikers don bright yellow rain ponchos along the trail. It's a "Wow Moment" to stand so close to such a powerful force of nature. It's truly breath taking. Once one is past Vernal Falls it isn't long before arriving at the second set of waterfalls higher up the mountain, the 594' Nevada Falls. The sound of both of the falls can be deafening and exhilarating, and they will leave you in awe of the power of nature.  Rainbows often appear over both of the falls.   This photograph is just a small 20' tall section of the Mist Trail abutting Vernal Falls. I am forever thankful for those people like John Muir and President Roosevelt, who fought to establish and preserve Yosemite National Park (and other national parks) so future generations could enjoy it and soak it all in, too.  It is an amazing national park that everyone should see at least once in their life.  It will get into your heart, and change your perspective. TO ORDER:  All prints will be a better quality and the water mark will be removed.  You can order copies of this photograph on paper, or canvas, or metal, or wood.   You can also order this photograph on numerous products such as on t-shirts from toddler to adult sizes, on cards, stationary, face masks, yoga mats, coffee mugs, and on many more products by clicking on this link -   https://pixels.com/profiles/nl-galbraith  It reminded me of this Bible verse: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3: verses 5-6."  You can also order this through https://www.nlgalbraithfineart.com without the Bible scripture if you prefer, by sending us a note.  We can print something else in that spot if you prefer (G rated of course). *A portion of the profits from sales of the "Yosemite" series will be donated to help parents with the early identification of teenage mental illness, and the different modalities for treatment and help.

The Back Side Of Half Dome, Yosemite #5

The Back Side Of Half Dome, Yosemite #5 The back side of Half Dome is just as spectacular in beauty as the front side, with a chrysal clear mountain stream making its way over the rocks nearby.  This photograph was taken in the summertime, because in the springtime most of these rocks would be under water by several feet of rushing water.  But even the depth of this stream can be deceiving as to how deep and how fast the water is moving.  What looks like a few inches deep, could actually be a few feet deep and moving fast enough to knock you off balance.  These types of beautiful scenes are everywhere in Yosemite National Park. Occasionally you might even catch a glimpse of deer, raccoons, and maybe even a bear.  Hang any of these Yosemite photographs in your office and when ever you need a break these photos will transport you to Yosemite, far away from stress at work. TO ORDER: All prints will be a better quality with a higher resolution and the watermark will be removed.  You can order this print on paper, on canvas, on wood, or on metal.  You can also order this printed on many different items such as t-shirts, coffee mugs, large towels, and many other items by clicking on this link -  https://pixels.com/profiles/nl-galbraith
