Back Home Again in Indiana: Watery Wednesday

Greetings from Carmel, Indiana

I have finally arrived back in Indiana after being gone for about two months. I spent about a month and a half in Wyoming then spent the next three weeks in California, Utah, and Colorado. There were countless bird highlights including Heerman's Gull, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Mountain Quail, and White-headed Woodpecker. Of course there were many more species, I had about 200 species after leaving Wyoming, but way to many to mention.

Here are some shots of Bridal Veil Falls in Yosemite National Park:

You were gone from home a long time. I bet it is nice to be home.

Your watery shots are beautiful!
I love how the detail is more pronounced in the second one.

Beautiful shots. I can't believe that I've never been to Yosemite.

Great shots, Eric! I've seen the Bridal Veil Falls in NC, maybe I can get to the one in Yosemite some day.

Beautiful shot of the falls. Hoped you enjoyed your visit to the state of Cali.

The second is an absolute beauty! And so is the first - you've just made the monochrome work really well.

200 bird species? Wow! I'm holiday too, but I think I'm in the wrong place for birds - although I did see a Great Spotted Woodpecker for the first time (but it was too far away to be photographed) :)
