Iconic Half Dome

Yosemite National Park

Photographed a gazillion times, but this one is special because it is mine.
Taken from the Sentinel Bridge viewpoint over the Merced River. I was
amazed that there were only two other photographers sharing this view with
me. Not the story I have heard during the busier times of the tourist season.

other sizes: small medium original auto

20 photographer with 20 cameras at the same spot you still get 20 different pictures ;o) This one is VERY nice. I got mine too. -BJ
