On my trip to Yosemite earlier this year, the Merced River was high, as it usually is in spring. This Dogwood tree was right in the middle of the river, seemingly surviving in the rushing water.
It was a little too early for Dogwood flowers, but the tree itself made an interesting subject surrounded by fast-moving water. The s curve from the tree's wake in the river was pretty constant, although I couldn't see why it was happening.
I chose B&W since the river's watercolor was not too photogenic, and I liked the graphic nature of the scene, with the tree branches being in stark contrast to the flowing water.
