Split Rock Sunrise
Photo By Joshua Cripps

  • Title: Split Rock Sunrise
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Tioga Lake, Yosemite National Park
  • Nearest Town: Lee Vining
  • Brief Directions: Tioga Lake is near the Tioga Pass entrance station to Yosemite National Park.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: I generally try to take a zen-like approach to my photography where I calmly survey the scene before me, take my time to find a composition, and then wait for the good light to hit. That was absolutely not the case on this cold October morning. After a 2 am departure and a 4.5 hour manic drive to Yosemite, my friends and I arrived at Tioga pass as the new day was dawning. Leaping out of the warm car into the 15°F chill of daybreak at 10,000 feet, we sprinted down to Tioga Lake, scrambling to find compositions as night turned to day. I was lucky enough to spy this beautiful crack in a rock out in the lake. Gingerly placing a few stepping stones before me, I made my way out to the split rock as the sky filled up with gorgeous light.
