EL CAPITAN 100 © 2006Yosemite National Park, CA
This was another early morning shot that was taken before the Merced River became a rushing torrent of melted snow. Because the river was calm I was able to use the reflection as part of the composition. With the clear blue sky, I was able to use a red filter, which accentuated the up-thrust of El Capitan into a dark sky, making for a very clean composition.
