14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Reflection of El Capitan - Yosemite

Beauty of Yosemite National Park. This is a great roadside lookoutpoint at Valley View as you leave Yosemite Valley, perhaps for a day trip down to the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias near Wawona or a scenic drive up to Glacier Point or Tioga Pass. It is a beautiful portrait of the Merced River flanked by massive El Capitan on the left and the skyscraping twin Cathedral Rocks and Spires.
