First Light, Yosemite Valley, Yosemite, CA
The present photo was taken from the famous 'Tunnel View' spot in Yosemite. A series of rainstorms moved in throughout night and by the clouds were trapped in the valley forming nice leading lines over the trees.
I composed vertically as it allows the eye to be drawn into the frame and the mist/clouds in the valley floor hold the frame together. The Bridalveil fall help balance out ElCapitan in the frame.
Post processing involved tweaking exposure, white balance and contrast followed by conversion to JPEG in Photoshop.
