Yosemite June 2014 - Color - JohnChico

Afternoons are the best time to shoot the east end of the valley including Half Dome, Tenaya Canyon, Vernal and Nevada Fall. As such, El Capitan (from Sentinel Dome) is always back lit and very hard to shoot into the sun. The sun had just set. There was nothing spectacular about the sunset, but the sky was still full of color behind El Cap and made for this interesting shot.
