These photographs were taken in Wawona, just inside the south entrance to Yosemite National Park.
April is warm this year. Mornings in the 30’s, daytime temperatures sometimes reaching the 70’s. A few days ago it snowed, though all traces are gone.
I think of the Summer King and the Winter King in Celtic folklore. Their battle for ascendency never ends. The King of Summer is winning now, but they’ll meet again in autumn.
The sun is so bright and the shadows so deep they stop you. Their interweaving patterns, stirring in the breeze, shift from moment to moment.
The world changes before our eyes. Always the same and never the same.
