Tunnel View, Yosemite Aphorism #122

Image

This is the classic and famous Tunnel View immortalized by many great photographers, including Ansel Adams. The panorama displays the flat valley floor bounded by tall cliff walls. On the left is towering mighty El Capitan and on the right Cathedral Rocks guard the entrance. Bridalveil Fall is underneath  Cathedral Rocks. Beyond in the distance you see the iconic Half Dome. Felt pretty fortunate to be able to include those imposing cloud formations in the composition.

“But no temple made with hands can compare with Yosemite. Every rock in its walls seems to glow life…as if into this one mountain mansion Nature had gathered her choicest treasures…”
