It was at least ten degrees below freezing that morning, but I was happy to be there to see the sun creeping slowly down the face.
Glad you like the photo, and thanks for dropping by.
Very nicely captured, I like the contrast of the rock veiled in the fog at the bottom and a beautiful blue sky on top.
Thank you Mountain Girl. Actually, the fog lifting from the snow covered meadow never reached the rocks, but it did add an extra measure of beauty to the scene.
Thanks for the visit,
Well done Marc!
Thank you so much, Brgds. I was lucky to have snow on the ground and had good weather.
Thank you very much, Roy. I'm glad you like it.
Spot on exposure!
El Cap gives you all the exposure you could ask for.
Thanks for the visit, alpinelight.
It almost looks like a painting. Thanks for posting!
Nature is the best painter in the universe.
Thanks for the visit, Rob.
One of your best.
Sometimes getting up early in the morning pays off.
as always! Best regards, Afzal
Thank you so much, Afzal. I appreciate your compliment.
Great dynamic range: the shadow in the valley and the light at the top are perfectly reproduced.
Thank you very much Renato.
Your photos are breathtaking.
...your photo really shows the greatness of this wall and why everybody speaks of it with this mixture of awe and fear...
Oh, Yes, El Cap, 3000 feet of pure majesty. I hadn't seen this photo in a long time. It brings back memories of that icy morning and my desire to catch the first light on it.
Thank you, Eric.
