So , what can you do with Half Dome that has not already been done? Well....

The clouds were moving quickly over the top of Half Dome, and the light looked good, so I put on my dark filter to make a long exposure.

Over the course of 30 seconds, the clouds moved a lot and the shadows of the clouds made for some good light across the face of the cliffs. And the moving trees and reflections softened in the reflected light.
