A raven taking off from North Dome with Half Dome in background

I was on a three day hike with my wife and a friend in Yosemite after two days of snowfall in November. We hiked up Snow Creek to Indian Rock and North Dome and back down Yosemite Falls. The second day late afternoon close to sunset we arrived on North Dome. Just us and a raven. After he had talked to us, I managed to take a picture of him taking off in front of the beautiful Half Dome.
