Yosemite National Park. After nearly an hour of winding, boring forest roads, nearly all of my passengers felt the pangs of motion sickness. We then entered a concrete tunnel with a point of light in the distance. Once we emerged from the tunnel, this majestic view greeted us. I was swept off my feet. So worth it.
I had photographed this view in the morning, but it wasn't until the late afternoon, on our way out, that the low sun drew swathes of warm light across the valley. This photo was the result of waiting for the light.
