“Purple Glow”

Sunset in Yosemite National Park, California

The Story of "Purple Glow"

Unsure where to go for our one sunset in Yosemite National Park, we chased the light to this gorgeous view of Half Dome catching the red glow of a fading sun while the sky transformed to shades of purple and pink.

Of all the places we visited and trails we hiked, this view from the river of this epic sunset was my most cherished memory and prized photo of all of our time in Yosemite.

As a note on the composition and settings, I felt like the long exposure was the right choice to add tranquility to a scene with an ethereal nature.
