Glacier Point Sunset, Yosemite National Park

Posted by
Mike Hall (California, United States) on 30 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Often you get so caught up in shooting what's in front of you, you can miss the show behind you. On a late Spring trip with fellow photographers Scott Schilling and Don Smith,we were treated to a spectacular sunset viewed from Glacier Point. A quick glance away from the setting sun revealed Half Dome bathed in the warm light color from the sun.

Thanks for visiting my photoblog. Though I may not be able to respond to every comment, I do read them all and I appreciate your interest.

The only thing this image needs now is a mat and frame and a prominent wall to display it. I hope you print it big. I never tire of this scene - especially when the light cooperates and reveals more of a painterly look. BTW - I love the crop!

Beautiful light, Mike--great shot. I'm with Don on the print thing--I think this would look great big.
