15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Half Dome - American Icon

This photography was taken from Cook Meadow in Yosemite National Park. The scene is of Half Dome to the right and North Dome to the left, with stars above an hour after sunset. The park had many visitors this evening, but I was alone in the meadow watching the nightly beauty unfold.
