A Touch of Light, Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park

I cannot tell you how much fun I’m having editing now that I can see what I’m dealing with! Turns out that editing on a laptop was never a good idea!
This shot is another shot from last Octobers Boot Camp. This was my last morning with the crew and we woke up just outside of Yosemite with pouring rain, but also with low-lying clouds. We rushed towards the park and set up at the infamous tunnel view and stood in the rain as the sky slowly opened up. On $@%&*! Made a comment about how much we were missing by watching this epic and dynamic scene through our viewfinders. It was pretty snide, and I was thinking there was a chance Breezy was going to through him down the hill in front of us so we could take some snaps of him rolling and careening out of our earshot, but alas everyone kept their cool.
This was a shot I grabbed just as the morning sun broke through for the first time and gave big ol’ El Cap a smooch. There are MILLIONS of shots from this place, but it turns out there’s a reason for that. It has to be one of the most stunning views in the world. Probably not THE most, but definitely one of them. How lucky I am to have it so close, and to have a group of maniacs so eager to stand with me in the rain to see it. Cheers to everyone.
If I don’t post again before I role out, I’m heading to Glacier for a spell to try and grab some shots. Wish me luck. –jared r.
