Magic on the Mountain
The last light of the day shines on Half Dome. Glacier Point in Yosemite is hands down the best place for sunset in the park.

As I hit a dead end in Fern Canyon, I turn back and survey where I've been and the way out.

Tunnel View Redemption
One of the most famous views of Yosemite National Park is Tunnel View. First time I shot this scene, it didn't turn out well. This past trip I found redemption.
