Yosemite Twilight

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 19 July 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I have always enjoyed this view of Yosemite from high atop Sentinel Dome. It provides the viewer a spectacular opportunity to see Half Dome and the Yosemite High Sierra. This image was taken after sunset when just a bit of Alpen Glow is touching the high elevations and the stars are just beginning to show.

Hey Scott, I like how all of the different elements of your composition work together...the pinpoints from the stars, the warm light and color from the alpen glow, the snow on the crest and a great grand view with Half Dome !

I have to echo what Mike said Scott - the transition from day to night has always intrigued me and you have captured it beautifully here.
