In case you missed it while it was in Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Renaissance XXIII has now traveled to the King’s Art Center in Hanford, California, and will remain on display there through September 21. My photograph of Bridalveil Falls (which received an Honorable Mention) remains part of this traveling exhibit.
