During my recent trip to Yosemite, I spent a couple of early mornings at the classic tunnel view hoping to catch a good sunrise. Since I had absolutely no internet signal (yay!), I had to rely on my assistant (wife) to forecast the weather (she went to weather.com). She relayed to me that it was supposed to be cool (freezing ass) and party cloudy (not a cloud in the sky). As it would turn out, both mornings were completely cloudless (don’t rely on weather forecasts from your wife). Undiscouraged, I was glad that I was there early enough to catch blue hour.
I know it’s the classic shot that everyone gets when they go to Yosemite, but it’s so beautiful that I couldn’t resist. I love how the blue light here plays on the mountains and turns the mist in the trees blue. For fun, I’ve included a shot of the same exact view that I took the previous evening when I got into the park.
