Granite - Yosemite National Park, California

Half Dome from Glacier Point,Yosemite National Park, California

This view might be my favorite one that I have ever shot. Yosemite National Park is my favorite national park in the United States and I never tire of it. While there are some great granite formations to be found there, Half Dome is the one I gravitate to. In my opinion, the best view of it is from Glacier Point featured here. This is one of the few places to get to an eye level view of Half Dome and also get a decent view of the valley. While standing at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley, you can almost look straight up and see Glacier Point. Getting there is a little more difficult and requires a 32 mile (1 hour drive) but it is well worth it. 

I took this image five years ago (time really flies) and edited it then. When i looked at it last week in my Lightroom library, I knew it was time to re-edit it to give it renewed life.
