G'day CARLA!

I spotted this magnifcent landscape in the 'Competitors Edge' gallery and am still stunned by its rugged beauty.

Apart from a few Ansel Adams B&W photographs of this iconic geological feature my exposure to it has been minimal.
I feel you have caught the true essence of the peak's presence, isolation and structure here.
Your vantage point and framing have ensured we see a much more detailed view of the face than I have ever seen and your good depth and focus bring us interesting detail even under those harsh conditions.
I have read of Ansel and his companions exploits in reaching this peak and take my hat off to you for making this trip.
Iconic work.

Dear Dennis,
Hello and G'day to you, too!
Thank you for noticing my image. Your comment is not only complimentary but, extremely thoughtful and has given great pleasure.

I am inspired by your beautifully written interpretation of my image. I took many images in and around Yosemite National Park. Putting great emphasis and focus on composition, focus, detail and the feelings I wanted each image to convey. My efforts have been rewarded, Thank You!

You have an awesome day and visit again soon.

Brilliant composition, Carla. Love the misty clouds. They add so much atmosphere to this. Wonderful time of day to catch this. Excellent job! #8964152

Carla Capra level-classic October 13, 2010

Hi Mark;
Thank you!!!
As you know, there are so many breathtaking views of this Dome. For me, sunset is just magical. During this visit we were gifted with rains, lightening, thunder (you've never heard thunder until you've heard it from Yosemite!), brilliant sunshine and these awesome clouds.
Thank you, again.
