Yosemite Tunnel View Afternoon

Yosemite Tunnel View Afternoon
Photograph - Digital Photograph
Clouds cast dramatic shadows as Bridalveil Fall roars to life at legendary Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park, in early June 2017. It was my first visit to this majestic scenic gem in Northern California. Absolutely awe-inspiring... God’s creation is beyond magnificent.
Although a number of trees have died as a result of the previous five years of drought, the park is still spectacularly beautiful, with near-record rainfall and snow pack during the previous winter of 2016-2017 giving new life to the vegetation, waterfalls and the Merced River which flows through the valley.
The precious Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit, quickens to my heart 2 Corinthians 5:17:: “Therefore if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
Tunnel View is located next to Wawona Road (California State Highway 41) at the east side of the Wawona tunnel.
In this photo I took of Yosemite Valley, El Capitan rises 3,000 feet on the left, iconic Half Dome is seen in the distance (about 4-1/2 miles away) and the Three Brothers rock formation with the 620-foot high Bridalveil Fall is on the right.
“Yes, you will go out with joy
and be led forth with peace.
The mountains and the hills
will break forth before you singing,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands!”

Embedded in the top right-hand corner is the Hebrew acronym for "B'ezras Hashem" [ב ס " ד] meaning "with God's help". It is a reminder to me as an artist and photographer of my dependence on the Almighty, the Originator of all creativity. This is a similar acknowledgement used by great artists like Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel who signed their work with the Latin phrase, "Soli Deo gloria" which means, "To God alone be the glory".
