Winter Reflections

The Warm Light of the Afternoon Sun Casts a Golden Reflection of El Capitan on the Merced River. Yosemite National Park, California.

Never say “never.”

On a cold and relatively dreary January afternoon, the overcast may have eliminated any high-contrast issues for those photographing along the Merced River. But that also meant very little sweet light to include in one’s images.

Until, that is, the clouds suddenly parted, bathing the top of El Capitan in warm afternoon light. I framed this composition and created a few frames just before the clouds once again swallowed that glorious afternoon light.
