Cottonwoods in Autumn, Yosemite National Park, CA

Posted by Vaibhav (Stanford, United States) on 18 December 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

On my last trip to Yosemite, I really wanted to photograph the warm fall colors against the imposing granite rocks. After about half a day of search and photographing many more images in this pursuit, finally I found this image.
The rocks in shade provided a perfect backdrop to the backlit, glowing cottonwoods, just past their peak fall color.
