One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2018—Never the Same

The view of Yosemite Valley from the Tunnel View outlook is different every time you visit.  It can change before your eyes.  The light, the clouds, the mists, the time of day all work together to create unforgettable pictures of this beautiful place, each view, unique.

This view was taken before 7 AM.  El Capitan, Cloud’s Rest, and Half Dome, barely visible through the clouds, are almost unrecognizeable.  Bridal Veil Falls was free of clouds when I took this shot but soon after, it, too, disappeared into the mists.  I converted the photograph to black and white.  The only color visible was a smidgeon of blue in the sky and reflected off the snow on the mountains.
