Sunset over Yosemite

Landscape Photography

Washburn and Glacier Points are very popular overlooks along the Glacier Point Road in Yosemite, providing stunning views of the eastern crest of the Sierra Nevada, Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and waterfalls including Yosemite, Vernal, and Nevada Falls. However, those overlooks are accessible by car only from late May through October or November. This picture was taken from Glacier Point at sunset. Having a photograph of Half Dome, Vernal and Nevada Falls, and distant peaks of the Sierra Nevada illuminated by the last rays of sunlight made our day.
