Last Light on Clouds Rest

Last Light on Clouds Rest

The last bit of light lands atop Clouds Rest in the distance with Half Dome still illuminated by the sunlight reflecting off the clouds above. Distant peaks on the horizon glow in the last bit of sunlight complementing the colors of the deep blue green forest. It’s hard to convey the wonder of this sight. Half Dome is massive and rises vertically above the canyon below. This view is taken from the cliffs of Glacier Point looking eastward. Just to the left off camera a 3000 foot straight drop to Yosemite Valley below. I have to say resting against a rock down in the trees gives a bit more feeling of security than does standing on the cliffs and offers some foreground that nicely frames the stunning High Sierra Nevada in the distance.
