Here is another image I made while in Yosemite last Saturday. This is probably my favorite image of the day. Glacier Point offers one of the most magnificent views of the Yosemite Valley from its 7200 feet elevation. The road to Glacier Point had just recently opened for the summer so it was perfect timing for us to make the trip. Tourists, believe it or not, have been making the trip to Glacier Point since 1872. It was a bit easier for us, with the nicely paved roads and 4-wheel drive vehicle to make the journey this past Saturday;~) Anyway, this image was made later in the afternoon when the sun was just starting to cast a few shadows along the valley adding some nice textures to the scene. That's Half Dome on the right side of the image. Camera specs; Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 28mm, F13 @ 1/320 second, ISO 250. Enjoy! -David
