Magical Fall Morning, Yosemite National Park

Talk about magical fall mornings! Having done my homework, I knew exactly where and when the sun would rise at Yosemite's Cooks Meadow on the morning I made this image.

Sometimes you get lucky as I did with the rising mist. This image in not an HDR or layered image (neither was yesterday's post - I don't use HDR programs).

This image has been featured in a national advertising campaign by Nik Software.
