Message from the author: Hello fans, I have finally finished processing these photos! I am very excited to show these photos to you guys. Also, I have recently bought myself a pair of Kenko Extension Tubes because a lot of photographers recommended that to me as a cheap alternative into macro photography. Those should be arriving in my mail in a few weeks. I will be showing you some sample images I take with those on right on my person Google+ profile. If you want to see the results, you can view them there. I don't mind you following my personal account. I've already kind of turned it public, and have a lot of fans on there already following me.
Important Notice to all individuals planning to visit Yosemite: Visits to Yosemite National Park are currently not recommended due to a recent outbreak of the Hantavirus. It has already taken the lives of a few visitors. The disease currently has no cure, however, survival rates increases the earlier you are diagnosed by a doctor and are helped. The virus are carried in the urine and feces of infected mice and can infect an individual who comes in contact with it. The virus may also become airborne after it mixes with dust and may be inhaled by individuals. If you experience early flu-like symptoms like headache, fever, muscle aches, shortness of breath and coughing within 6 weeks after visiting the park, it is recommended that you go see a doctor right away and tell him/her about the possible contact with the Hantavirus. The virus can incubate for up to six weeks after exposure. If you wish to learn more about this outbreak, just Google the words "Yosemite Virus", and you should find plenty of resources on this subject.

Now let's introduce today's photo. That's right, I said photo... Technically it's 3 photos, but I combined them to form one photo. In today's article, I just want to do a comparison of Yosemite Falls between the fall this year, and the fall in 2010. You will be quite surprised at what it looks like. You can click the photo to see it magnified.
Surprising right? There was like no water at all except for a few small drops of water (shown on the left). It was very dry and hot there. The amount of tourists I saw that was in bikinis, bathing suits, and swimming trunks that walked away in disappointment. HAHA For me, it was also kind of a disappointment too. I was able to get photos of the empty waterfall to show you guys, but I really wanted to go in the water to cool down and splash around in. :/ I still remember back in 2010 when I got to walk in the water. It was a really great experience and I really loved it. In fact, I heard people say there is no water from people who visited the park before me, but I didn't expect it to be this dry. I thought there would still be a some left, and in my head, I was picturing like 1/8 the amount of water as before. I really thought there would be a little bit of water to play in, but I was wrong. It was a really dry season sadly.
