Half Dome At Sunset by Stephen Vecchiotti


Available to buy on…

This image was captured from Olmsted Point in the high country of Yosemite National Park just before sunset. Half Dome is a true natural wonder of the world in itself and was lit with this wonderful light from the setting sun. Needless to say I was very fortunate to have been “at the right place at the right time”, which is what landscape/nature photography is mostly all about – Yosemite National Park, California, USA.
