The Tunnel View SpotLight by eugeneramos

Although this photo was taken 2 years ago, it is still my favorite Yosemite shot.

After patiently waiting for hours, I finally got the shot that I want. It was a cloudy day, but somehow the sun rays found their way to illuminate the falls like a spotlight. This moment lasted only for few seconds. It is really being in the right place at the right time. My only regret was Half Dome was covered with clouds.

Sunrise at El Capitan by PhotoWorksbyDon

So, what does one do when wide awake at 1:30 am? Pop on over to Yosemite for some sunrise photos, of course. wink emoticon

I got the to Valley overlook about 5:30 and took some shots from there, then went down towards Yosemite Village as the sun was coming up. I actually caught this scene on the way out, which just reinforces my creed that a photographer should ALWAYS LOOK BEHIND before leaving a scene. The light on El Cap was just perfect for this. I’ll be posting a few others but wanted to let you enjoy this one.

Winter sunset from classic Tunnel View (aka Discovery View), Yosemite National Park. We lucked out with some pretty interesting cloud and low hanging fog formations on this particular evening! Thank you for viewing, voting and/or any constructive comments!
