Rising Crescent, El Capitan & Half Dome, Yosemite

Gary Hart (California, United States) on 3 May 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Sunday morning I guided my workshop group to photograph this crescent moon splitting El Capitan and Half Dome at sunrise. This once in a lifetime event (really) had been on my radar for months, but amazingly, we were the only one's there to witness it. Read more about the experience here.

I can 'almost hear' your sigh of relief when she rose in that small space. You and your group surely witnessed the beauty of nature that "dark and early" morning, and I hope you thanked God.
