18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Half Dome, Olmstead Point, Yosemite

Other photographers in the area were hiking high to get an unobstructed view. I wanted to portray the feeling of being in that place at that time. The viewpoint between trees creating a natural border composition along with the peach light gives this shot a sense of place.
