There was a tree trunk fell down in Merced river at this location. I determined the best spot was balancing myself on the tree trunk and extending tripod further more so the tree trunk was outside of the view finder. I used gradient ND filter and other technique to make it possible to capture this scene in single RAW file. The sunset color illuminated the El Capitan and clouds at that right moment while the snow caps remained in the cool color temperature. That's what I want and I am glad mother nature gave me the chance.
