He also had the mountains reaching the top of the frame so that the sky was cut off when looking at the image from left to right. 3, a replica of Adams’ shot in the same area, shows the falls from Yosemite Lodge. From that vantage point, the growth of the valley vegetation is so thick that it’s difficult to see the lower falls. Even so, the view of the falls from that vantage point is quite impressive.

It’s probably due to the age of the pavement; the newer road in the middle of the frame is apparently reflecting less sunlight because the pavement is darker.
