Yosemite Valley Sunburst

I included this image to show the viewer a full show of the Horsetail Falls phenomena. I captured the sun just as it was making its way into the V-shaped notch in the Cathedral Rocks located on the South Rim of Yosemite Valley, adjacent to El Capitan. You can see the sunlight being partially occluded by the immense brow of El Capitan. Once the sun reaches the horizon, the bright white swatch of light will be just an thin strip, squarely focused only on Horestail Falls and lit with whatever remaining color the sunset offered that particular night .
