Photographer's Note

When you entering Yosemite Valley, Bridalveil Fall may be the one to give you the first natural wonder impression, as shown in my previous post Entering Yosemite Valley. It is one of the most pictured natural sceneries in Yosemite Valley. I spent more than an hour near a viewpoint at Wawona Tunnel area, one of the most traditional place to photograph Yosemite Valley in taking this waterfall picture.
This is a classic scene and classic picture. It is very hard to have anything different from the others. I believe this picture has the following differences from all other traditional Bridalveil Fall pictures: (1) The water volume is extremely large this year; (2) The sunset was at its best angle, the shade is visible; (3) A foreground pine tree was used to frame this picture.

Bridalveil Fall has a height of 620 ft, or 189m, about the height of a 62 story building. I have posted a zoomed out picture and an early morning close-in picture of the Bridalveil Fall in WS.

PP: crop; saturation; slightly sharpened after reduced the image size.

I hope you enjoy this picture.
