There’s something about California’s Yosemite National Park that’s simply special. No matter where you look, there’s a perfect photographic opportunity. The hikes, amazing; the landscapes, awe-inspiring; the history, mesmerising.
But it’s also one of the most challenging locations to capture the uniqueness of the nature that surrounds you. Sure, there are the standard views – Glacier Point, the lakeside near the park exit, or the old-favourite, “Tunnel View”, but these are postcard shots more than anything, and I was looking for something more on this occasion.
Having already captured the amazing morning fog stood at the view from above, I headed down to the valley floor to see if the atmosphere continued beyond sunrise – and it did! This lone tree, in the shadow of the infamous Half Dome itself, stood perfectly basking in the sunlight that had just made it through to the south over the mountains that surrounded us. While missing some of the snow that had melted during the week, the frost covering the park provided a perfect winter scene – and wow, that light!
