P 52 14 of 52 Tunnel View Golden Hour

I ventured North-east to look for Wildflower and then went into Yosemite National Park to photograph the river, and waterfalls, but couldn’t be here and not go up to Tunnel View. I swung by here earlier in the day to see how it looked and thought it would be a good place to try for sunset since the clouds were getting thicker by the hour and by 3PM Half Dome was covered in clouds.

I made two images up here a cool version using my Singh Ray LB Color Combo filter, and a warmer version sans filter. This is the warmer version. I’ll post the cool version soon.

This is all the color we got this evening. More clouds rolled in obsuring the sun and blocking any more color. By 7:40pm I was in the Pearl (my car) with the heater on thawing out still hoping the color would come. There were only 3 photographers set up waiting and hoping by then; everyone else had left. I left a few minutes later.
