Half Dome and Moon

Half Dome and moon

Half Dome from Glacier Point, Yosemite National Park.

I am back from Barcelona – a long two weeks of work and a little vacation. I\’ll have more photos from that trip in a bit. meanwhile, here is one from good old Yosemite.

We were at the Glacier View Point in Yosemite National Park for Sunset. It was very crowded, along with a range program about the history of Yosemite as a National park. He was talking about how the sunsets from Glacier Point are either \”Wow\’ or \”oh..that was all?\”..

Luckily for us we got a very nice sunset, with the sun kissing Half Dome and the snow topped mountains behind it. The moon in the sky was just the right touch.
