Half Dome Aflame by StevenDavisPhoto Half Dome Aflame by StevenDavisPhoto
This shot won me a 3 month DA Premium Membership [link]

While on a photography workshop in Yosemite, we happened to get an AMAZING sunset from the viewpoint at Glacier Point looking towards Half Dome. I took over 300 shots here and this was my favorite. I hope you enjoy it too.

A mounted print of this shot can be purchased at my Etsy store for only $20 - [link]

I was just there a few weeks ago, and had nearly the same view... except when I was there, there were zero clouds in the sky.

You have done quite well with this shot!

I love how a bit of orange and red suddenly jut out from slight-purplish gray. I presume that the orange-red spots are formed by the proximity of the sun hitting on those areas. The greater concentration of those spots in the background implies that the sun is setting towards that direction, creating a shadowy impression over the rest of the photo.

But I am puzzled about the existence of a 'fiery' orange-red spot in the foreground (bottom middle, almost in the precise center of the scenery). It is closer to the viewer's perspective than other areas, and it is surrounded by the dark shadowy areas where the sun does not appear to hit and focus. :confused: Being an anomaly to the distribution of light, darkness, and shadows in the photo---in fact, this appears to be the most intense area---it caught my attention. But I think it still adds a magnificent contribution of contrast to the overall scene.

yeah, i believe it's from the valley to the left (off camera) that creates it. the taller shadows are from the surrounding peaks.
