Wildcat Falls. This is my favorite of the lesser known waterfalls of Yosemite National Park. The falls cascade down fron the high country but can only be seen in bits and pieces depending on where you are viewing it from.
This image was taken from the bottom of the falls where the water dumps into the pool and runs into a small creek that ultimately ends by joining the Merced River.
From out by the highway in the valley you can see the lower mid section of the falls as it drops behind the tree line. Outside of the valley you can see the upper part of the falls after the creek flows under highway 120 on the way out of the valley. I'm sure there are other areas that parts of this fall can be seen but I haven't found them yet.
This was taken in the early spring and was put together in a process known as HDR. HDR takes multiple images at different exposure levels and blends them together so that more details are brought out.
Modern cameras are unable to to see in the shadows of bright images and in bright images the shadows become black spots where details are lost.
