a little higher up above Evolution Valley, Sapphire Lake in July 2010 when there was some decent snow to create some contrast on those slopes. Mt. Huxley in the middle.

Island in the Sky...North Dome last Saturday mid morning from Leidig Meadow in Yosemite Valley after the snow. Taken with my new Sony A6000 + SEL55210 lens. 6000 x 4000 pixels, downsized 6:1 for web viewing.
larroyo33, your pic of Liberty Cap and Nevada Fall is timely for this person as I tentatively plan to drive back to the valley after work Friday for this coming weekend too. And am thinking of night hiking up from Happy Isles at 4:30 am so I can snag an image of the Cap a bit after astronomical sunrise from illuminated sunrise skylight though a bit back down the trail from your pic. Likely will wait till sun is just about to start hitting the top of that landscape. I've shot color film there in the afternoon and the fall is too bright and harsh unless clouds can mute the direct sun just in the fall area that is a rather unlikely gamble. A skylight image will be more easily all within sensor range.
Last weekend the dogwood were moving towards peak so am likely to work some on the west side of the river on the way down in the Illoutte drainage few ever bother with.
