Getting Tunnel Vision at Tunnel View in Yosemite
As you’re coming in from the south on State Route 41, you pass through this mile long tunnel that opens up to the Yosemite Valley. You can’t help but pull off and take in the vistas of El Capitan, Half Moon and Bridalveil Falls. I spent a few hours at sunset shooting the changing light from a thunderhead that was breaking up to show a full moon. As the crowds disappeared and I was there alone, I decided to turn my camera to the tunnel, setup for a long exposure, to catch the red,white and orange beams of light from a few cars passing through the tunnel. They probably thought I was a little crazy, hugging the road in darkness.
