A Yosemite icon, this waterfall image goes beyond the norm by not only creating the colorful rainbow effect at its base, but also offering us a layered approach that pulls our eye into the image. The forested foreground draws us to base of the waterfall. The middleground contains the focal point of the picture -- the intense concentration of white water wreathed in soft colors. The background offers context -- the waterfall itself, snaking its way down the cliff, which then carries our eyes up and out of the image at upper right.
