Description: This is the famous view, usually referred to Tunnel View, or Valley View. On this particular morning there were no clouds or mist to add drama to this scene. Therefore, I waited patiently, as I noticed the sun was going to rise just behind El Capitan. I hoped this would shed some dramatic light on the valley below. I thought that the sun's rays would add more drama, as well as increase balance to the overall scene.
