This was captured at dawn looking over the weir at the end of Southwick Park Lake in Hampshire. There is a good strong flow over the weir due to all the rain we have had lately. I had gone there with Mark and Oliver to shoot the sunrise across the lake but prefer this earlier image which is almost an hour before the sun could be first seen through the trees. Full technical details of the image can be found here: Elm Studio via 500px ift.tt/1rhCmfB

Evening light on forests and a glaciated granite bowl, Yosemite National Park
Large slabs of nearly unbroken granite, left behind in the wake of ancient glaciers, are a prominent and characteristic feature of the high country of Yosemite National Park. There is granite all of the Sierra, but this granite often seems to me to be more intact, and rather than encountering fields of broken rock it is common to come across these beautiful structures of exfoliating granite, often still with areas of smooth and reflective glacial polish. Scattered trees have taken hold in surprisingly thin cracks.
This bowl is in such a characteristic place, in the bottom of a great river canyon, just where it begins to become narrower and steeper. The area clearly shows the effects of glaciation, from the smooth rock in the canyon bottom to the sculpted domes and faces above. I have photographed in this bowl before on several occasions, and despite shooting there many times I continue to find new ways to see it every time I visit.
