Thanks all. That is Tuolumne Falls on the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River.

here's a shot of Waterwheel Falls about 10 miles farther down.

Great shots!!!  Love the color saturation...

Would you care to share some of the technical details?

i.e. camera, lens, exposure settings, filters, etc.

 

Would love to learn from these really dramatic images!!

Beautiful photos! Love the rainbow. Based on the colors you're getting in those shots, I'd guess you're using a polarizing filter, is that right?

Me too. I didn't bring any fishing gear on this trip. It was all about photography for this one. Funny thing is this "pond" is actually the Tuolumne river as it does a tight "S"turn after slowing from the falls 1/4 mile upstream. We happened to have found a perfect camp spot right up from that last shot, so that is where we walked down to get our water for camp. To get to the lower falls in shot #2, we had to wade a flooded section of trail. It was about thigh deep, but wonderful to wade through with flip flops until the trail rose out of the flooded area; about 1/4 mile. Next time, I'm concentrating on fishing the area.

I was looking at the Tuolumne River a couple of weeks ago.  Didn't get the chance to fish it this year, but if I go out there again next Summer, I'll be wading that water, for sure!
