The Three Brothers.
It's late autumn in Yosemite and life is slowing down in the valley.
The majestic waterfalls that Yosemite Valley is known for have all but stopped flowing as the watershed that they draw from have dried up due to the long, hot, dry summer.
There is a balancing point where the hot summer gives way to the cooler autumn and the winter storms start advancing towards the Sierras. This has been a dry summer and the rains have come late to the valley.
The Merced River has dropped and the water is barely moving. This turns the river into a long ribbon of a mirror reflecting the valley from all sides.
This image was captured between the chapel and Curry Village. We parked along side the road and took the short hike down to the river. Because the river was low and moving slow I was able to walk out to what is normally the center of the river to set up my tripod. I don't normally like a clear blue sky in my landscape images but I think it works well here.
