I resist taking the iconic photo, simply because it is iconic. But some photos just happen regardless of preconceived prejudices. The contrast here does not appear in the picture. This was taken from the middle of a bridge with about 1000 people swimming, floating in the river, jumping off of the bridge, and simply walking around. It is a classic example of what a picture does not show. I was wishing, at the time, that we had more time to explore Yosemite, but at the same time I was anxious to get in the car and get out of the congestion and crowds in the Valley. We also had to sit in our car and wait just to get a parking place to take this picture.
