The blue and the pink are in perfect harmony, what one more time shows us good that the nature is the biggest artists. And you a very good photographer!

Great example of creating depth in an image Scott. I love the placement of the lone pine on the right side that leads the eye towards Half Dome and the subtle cloud formations catching the last light of the setting sun.

Very nice tones on this landscape, the soft light that illuminates the peaks is magnificent. Superb framing with the trees that seem to watch this scene. Good day.

Fantastic arrangement Scott...I think my favorite aspect of this beautiful composition is the light reflecting off tjhe far peak and slopes in the right hand side of your frame (behind and to the right of Half Dome)..That is just absolutely awesome! The lone tree on the right (a noble fir I think??) just keeps us looking around and the beautiful cloud reflection is a great sister home base to the foreground here in the front! I also really love the reflected granite, not only in the dome but just below it in the center....looks like a river of reflected stone. Just a beautiful job, Scott!!

I could happily gaze at this scene for hours on end Scott.
I'd love to see a similar shot taken on a 50 or 55mm lens, just to help this Brit get a more normal sense of the scale of the valley, do you have any kicking around?

Stunning! Look at these deep blue hues, so soothing! I love the chill effect of this shot, complimented by the warmth of the few pink clouds.
