- Description: This is a photograph of the well-known Jeffrey Pine sitting prominently on Yosemite National Park's Sentinel Dome. It's best known from an icon photograph of Ansel Adam's, but has been transformed since it died during a drought years ago. The light for this photograph is the most remarkable light I've ever encountered. It occurred after sunset at twilight. The air was very smokey from controlled burns, and it caused a remarkable diffuse pinkish light to faintly illuminate the landscape, seen here in this long exposure.
- Gear: Nikon D40, Nikon 18-200VR
