Whilst setting up for this shot, I was joined by a curious and, probably hungry, little companion.
Despite me still messing around with the camera settings, he sat for quite some time waiting for his moment in the limelight.
At other times of the year, the space beyond the fallen tree (Mirror Lake) is, as its name suggests, an expansive area of water.
However, September is not the time of year to see lakes, waterfalls and raging rivers in Yosemite.
