7.1. Why It's Worth a Photograph

Fern Springs may be the smallest named waterfall in Yosemite National Park, but it is also one of the most photogenic. This is a two-tiered waterfall emanating from a natural spring, with a total drop of approximately 18 inches! Well-known photographers, such as Ansel Adams, John Sexton, and William Neill have all made beautiful photographs from this location. Fern Springs is surrounded by broad-leaved maples and dogwood trees.
