Half Dome from Glacier Point

Half Dome from Glacier Point

Glacier Point, elevation 7,214′, overlooks the Yosemite Valley providing a 180 degree panoramic view of the Valley floor over 3000′ below.

In this one-shot image, the Nevada Falls flowing into Vernal Falls below are on the far right, Half Dome dominates the center, and Yosemite Falls and El Capitan are out of the frame at the left.  The Valley floor is so deep it is well out of the frame below.

Jet streams are a common sight in Yosemite NP, must be a major corridor for commercial air traffic.  Even so, I felt fortunate to get one in this frame.

Thought for the Day:  Today is your day!  Your mountain is waiting, so … get on your way!                                                                                                                                      Dr. Seuss
