Reflection of El Capitan into the Merced River, winter

Photo and caption by Jean Slavin
This is the reflection of El Capitan into the Merced River.It is a rare photo, as water is always moving in Yosemite.At this moment the river was perfectly still. The snow and ice also frames El Capitan very nicely. I took this photo and rotated it 180 degrees. If you look closely, you can see the snow on top of the rocks.
