At Yosemite

A few years ago my family and I took a trip out to the west coast to visit family near San Francisco. We used the opportunity to see two of the great parks; Sequioa NP and Yosemite NP. After a day of hiking through Yosemite valley, on the way out we stopped at a pull out. El Capitan and Bridalveil falls were painted golden by the evening sky; the Merced river turned blue from the sky. It was amazingly beautiful! I lined up with all the other photographers and snapped away. In the post processing process I scanned the 35mm image, applied the usual minor adjustments I make and cropped the original image to a panoramic because the front was too shady and boring.
