Valley View Moonrise - Yosemite National Park

This perspective is the definitive view of Yosemite Valley, looking towards the east from the valley floor. During this multi-layered moment the upper half of El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls and the south rim were illuminated by the sunset which cast that orange glow. The full moon was rising over the Cathedral Spires and the long exposure balanced the lack of foliage by allowing all that color and soft flow of the Merced River.
