[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tenaya Lake is a lake in Yosemite National Park, located between Yosemite Valley and Tuolumne Meadows

It was created by the Tenaya branch of the Tuolumne Glacier as it passed through Tenaya Canyon. The outflow of the lake is Tenaya Creek, which runs through Tenaya Canyon into Yosemite Valley. The surface of Tenaya Lake has an elevation of 8150 feet (2484 m).
Tenaya Lake is named after Chief Tenaya, who met the Mariposa Battalion near the shores of the lake. Ironically, Tenaya protested that the lake already had a name: Pie-we-ack, or "Lake of the Shining Rocks."This original name is now attached to a granite dome to the east of the lake.

The image did lose some sharpness in the scan but the Yosemite magic landscape is unmistakable. I picked it out in the thumbnail. This is a classic composition.

Hello Sky,
Marvelous looking scenery, very nice composition, thanks for sharing Sky.

Ah I was wondering about the colour. Beautiful composition though Sky.

Hello Sky,
I like the way you composed this picture. Mountains and light blue sky lead eyes to the far end of this picture. Great reflection on the water surface. The small patch of white cloud complete this nice image.

wow Sky, great scene. Lovely composition, light and POV. Very beautiful



Hallo Sky,
schönes Foto mit fast antiker Patina.
Tritt aus dem weichen Dunkel des Vergessens ins grelle Licht des kalten world wide web als ein nostalgischer Gruß aus fernen Tagen, als es noch Rollfilm, VW-Bus und Hippies gab.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
