High Sierra Sanctuary by davidrichterphoto High Sierra Sanctuary by davidrichterphoto
The 10,911 ft (3,326 m) Cathedral Peak towers over Upper Cathedral Lake and much of Yosemite National Park like an ancient sanctuary. During a colorful late August sunset the western slope picks up the last light of the day, as seen from the granite blocks 130 feet above the lake's surface and a deer browsing in the meadow to the left of the lake.

While in the distance the peaks of Matterhorn Peak, Twin Peaks, Camiaca Peak (most distant, right behind Fairview Dome) and Sheep Peak (left to right) loom just as majestically over Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada range.

Wow David!

I've been scrolling through your work here, and I have to say that these are some of the most emotionally transcendent images I have ever seen. Whatever your technique or method is, you have truly merged amazing light and composition together into something absolutely breathtaking!

Beautiful shot! Maybe a little bit too sharpened, but a lovely composition, and the lines lead the eyes easily around the whole shot. I love the pink, fluffy clouds. :)

Tokina 11-16 f/2.8
My wide angle workhorse. Super sharp, great contrast, fast for architecture and night photography, great sun star and built like a tank. Reasonably priced for the quality.

Tokina just announced a revised version of this lens. So you might want to wait a couple more weeks/months if you're in the market for one or score the old model for less.

Yes, this is from the same evening. We waited perched on some granite cliffs for the sun to set, only to hike out in the pitch black. Definitely an experience. Thanks for the kind words!

All in all rather Inspirational.

Thank you. It required some, yes. There's a pretty nice trail up from to the lake that requires a steady uphill hike of 2.5 to 3 hours, less if you started late and now run for sunset. Then it's maybe another 30 minutes to climb/scramble up some 130ft. of granite to get to the viewpoint on the cliffs. Hiking back in the pitch black in bear country was an experience, to say the least.
