Contrast - Yosemite NP

Contrast - Yosemite NP

Shot of the meadow below the Cathedral group. This shot was a lucky shot. I was having photos displayed at the Ansel Adams Gallery that day and killing time until the start. I was rather focused on shooting something closer, looked up, shot this and went back to what I thought was so interesting.

Wow! Holy....! Thank you for all of the kind comments, all. Very much.

I really struggled with the sizing constraints on this site. It took me a few tries, a few different ways in CS2 to get the shot to an allowable size with decent detail. I'll work on a larger version.

Thanks again, everyone.

I hardly ever give 10, but this one is worth even 11.

So, I posted in the photo forum and have gotten NO responses. Anyone know of a way to re-post/re-submit this image (larger size) without losing the comments, votes, etc? I really appreciate the kind words. Thanks!

Wow.. I think this is the best shot I've seen here. The grain and the light make it look more like a painting than a photograph.

How come the location says somewhere in Wyoming, but the shot is in Yosemite?

Hmmm... I'm just not seeing it listed as in Wyoming, jabarnes. It's showing as Higher Cathedral Spire in Yosemite.
