Photographer's Note

I found a few of my B/W negatives put away for several years and had bever had proof sheets completed on the images. This is one of a dozen or so that I feel merit in showing here on TE. .There is a different image on the other two Trek sites tonight also if you are curious to see them.
I took this with a green filter to highlight the branches of the two trees, a red filter would have darkened the tree too much and the detail would have been lost. The use of a green filter enhances any shrubery, flowers, trees, etc., and holds detail much better in a darker environment.
This single tree across from Olmstead Viewpoint was what I considered the Yosemite in itself, minus Half dome and El Capitan, and a few other landmarks. I visited this same tree many times when I came to Olmstead Point, I was amazed and awestruck at the beauty of the limbs and of the trees strength to withstand the harsh winters and summers it had endured for most of a hundred years.
I posted an image of this same tree taken with B/W slide film when I first came to TE, you may notice that the final image then was not anywhere as pleasant to look at as this image is.
I hope one day soon to revisit this landmark of the park, maybe this summer if at all possible.
Have A Great Weekend...
