Half Dome and Yosemite Valley at Twilight

Half Dome and Yosemite Valley at twilight

Just a quick post to say hello to everyone!

This photograph was taken at twilight of majestic Half Dome in California’s Yosemite National Park. Located at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley and rising 8,842 feet (2,650 meters) above sea level, Half Dome is a true park icon and a great challenge for many hikers. George Anderson was the first one to make it to the top of Half Dome in 1875. Nowadays, Half Dome may be conquered via a 14- to 16-mile long trail (round-trip) which takes hikers in good shape about 10 to 12 hours to complete – a permit is required: you can find more information on the National Park Service’s website.

Hope you enjoy the image – have a great weekend, you all! 🙂

    Such a beautiful shot, Stefano. The light was perfect! I’ve neer been to Yosemite and it’s one of the few spots this side of The Pond that’s still on my bucket list.

    This is BEAUTIFUL Stefano. You captured the fading natural light so elegantly, majestically… I’ve been staring at the image for a few minutes now and I’m still in awe. I would love to actually visit that landscape one day. I’ve seen Yosemite and the half dome on a few documentaries and I am constantly blown away. Thanks for sharing this image with us.
