Nearest Area: Bridge crossing the Merced River near Yosemite Village
Nearest Town: El Portal
Brief Directions: Yosemite National Park approximately midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Notes: The bridge across the Merced River is crowded every sunset with photographers hoping for good color on Half Dome. More often than not nothing unusual happens. This photograph shows a very rare situation. I have been going to Yosemite frequently for some forty years and this sky is the first of its kind I have seen.
Best Season: Spring
Description: A storm had just cleared as the sun was setting producing this unusually colorful sky.
