It is no wonder that Ansel Adams, the legendary American black and white landscape photographer, selected Yosemite National Park as one of his main areas for his outstanding photographic work. The park features a variety of majestic landscapes of waterfalls, granite outcrops and of course the beautiful Merced River meandering through the valley.

One of the spectacular views is Glacier Point, a 1-hour drive away from Yosemite Valley up Glacier Point Road. During my 2014 visit to the National Park, I visited this location several times for sunrise and sunset. However, the park was experiencing severe smoke haze due to nearby wildfires, greatly reducing visibility.

Then, a short thunderstorm suddenly cleared the air. So, I decided to make the journey from Yosemite Valley to Glacier Point again in time for the setting sun to reward me by beautifully illuminating the iconic Half Dome in the most glorious golden colors.
