I took this photograph after venturing into the Ten Lakes Basin of Yosemite this summer. After viewing all of the ten lakes I hiked up to this small lake overlooking the Ten Lakes Basin and beyond into the Tuoulumne River Canyon. While setting up camp the rumors of a flash flood appeared to be coming true. A large storm front moved in above this granite peak as the late afternoon light poured in lighting up the face. I then made this photograph.
