Blue hues of night descending upon the Sierra Nevada as the last bit of light fades across the peaks. Half Dome defies the night reaching skyward just enough to pick up the last reds of sunlight. All had given up thinking the show was over but I’ve been doing it long enough know there is no end. Just the subtle transition to night as the stars begin to peak though the clouds. Sometimes it’s good to be the last shooter atop the cliffs.

The last bit of light from the sunset shimmers across the vast expanse of Mono Lake as seen from a small reflecting pond surrounded by wildflowers. The vista is a unique one where you can see the vast salt lake from a freshwater pond and the creek that feeds it. Mono Lake sits just below the High Sierras. It’s snow fed creeks flowing into the massive lake. Known for its alien rock formations called Tufas which can be found along the South shore of Mono Lake, the immense lake is a wonderland of scenic landscapes. The tufas along are worth a visit but the lake is stunning from any view.

As winter gives way Tuolumne Meadows breaks free from the ice and snow. The grasses immediately come back to life and the river floods into areas that are normally part of the meadow. Above it all, Cathedral Peak rises into the sunset as the wind shuffles the clouds in the crystal clear blue sky. A few moments either way and the scene changes dramatically.

On a warm day a light breeze blew across the lake carrying the soft scent of sweet peas. The thunderclouds that had threatened though the afternoon began to break up allowing the setting sunlight to slip under and light the clouds up from below. The crowds gave way and a peaceful calm came across the lake. We stayed to watch the last bit of light just as a soft rain began to fall changing the scent to that of fresh rain. A perfect Father's Day at Bass Lake.

Light from the many cars and buildings in Yosemite Valley lights up Yosemite Falls from below. This long exposure shows the routes of cars through Yosemite Valley, glow from the campfires, hotels and Yosemite Village.
