Description

After watching the clouds roll over Yosemite valley for the afternoon, I was not holding out hope for anything at Glacier Point. At the last moment, the sun broke thru and cast the most heavenly reds and oranges over both Half Dome and the distant Sierras. Within a minute, the light had faded again, leaving only a few shots to capture the scene.
