    Hi Terry. Excellent capture of this beautiful location. Great light and colors. Was this taken from Glacier Point? After we spent three days at Sequoia we went on to YNP and spent 6 days there. We were there from June 9-14. Too bad we didn't know we were there at the same time. My favorite thing was the hike to Nevada Falls.

Thanks for your kind comments, everyone! Tammy, yes this was taken from Glacier Point on June 8. We were there from June 6-9, traveling there from Yellowstone where we stayed from May 23-June 3. It would have been fun to meet!

Spectacular capture of this photographic icon, Terry! The lighting is sensational and the detail and clarity are quite striking! Ditto the colors and tones, especially the sky! Wonderful POV - I've never seen this angle before - hard to get something unique, but you've managed to do it! Must go, someday...

By written word and by example, two of my favorite photographers have shown how important it is to "Wait for the Light." You have proven that to be true with this beautiful scene. Congratulations for the image and for the POTD.

Terry,
congrats on the PoD! This is one of the best sunset shots of half dome rock I have ever seen! You should submit it to the park as a postcard! I am almost sure that they would take it!
