"Alchemy" - A Power or Process of Transforming Something Common Into Something Special

I never tire of this place. It is nice to be so close to Yosemite National Park. On a free day i can rise early in the morning and make it to the Tunnel View of Yosemite Valley by Sunrise. Later a drive around the south side drive gets to the pick nick area at the bridge crossing the Merced River just below Yosemite Falls. This picture is one i took earlier this month.

Yosemite Falls Refleciton after Clearing Winter Storm

The clear air, the snow covered shadows, the lingering fog in the valley and the smooth water and reflection create a very serene scene.
