Brief Directions

Valley View/Gates of the Valley is the last turnout on Northside Road in Yosemite Valley, before you return to Pohono Bridge at the far western end.

Notes

The clouds were very bright compared to the shadows in this scene, so I used three exposures post-processed in Photomatix HDR software to preserve detail in the highlights and shadows. A new version 6 of Photomatix Pro is currently in beta testing, and will be out soon!

Description

Yosemite's Gates of the Valley viewpoint is very popular, and for good reason. It offers a great view of El Capitan to Bridalveil Falls, and it can be spectacular with dramatic spies and reflections.
