Yosemite National Parkâ€™s south entrance is about 60 miles north of Fresno, CA, on highway 41. Inside the park, highway 41 becomes Wawona Road and continues north, until it turns east and goes through a tunnel. Coming out of the tunnel, the â€œTunnel Viewâ€ parking area is immediately to the left. This shot was taken from Tunnel View.
Taken at 28mm (EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM), ISO 200, 1/160 sec., f/8, Aperture-Priority, one-shot AF.
From the elevation of Tunnel View, above the west end of the Yosemite Valley, one can see many of the most impressive features of the park, to include El Capitan, Cathedral Rocks, Bridalveil Fall, Sentinel Dome, and Half Dome. Itâ€™s also a great location from which to appreciate the size, lushness, and beauty of the heavily wooded valley floor.
