Last night I decided I was going to leave Oakland at 1:30am and head to Yosemite Valley for sunrise. When my alarm went off, I was really enjoying my cozy slumber, and getting more than 3 hours of sleep sounded way better than driving 3 hours to stand in 30 degree weather taking photos. Nevertheless, I powered through and ended up in Yosemite watching the sun rise over Half Dome. This photo of Half Dome is now my favorite photo that I’ve ever taken. It wasn’t just the subject, but the journey to this photo that makes me proud. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Yosemite is the best.
