Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting northern CALIFORNIA, with SAN FRANCISCO, YOSEMITE, SEQUOIA and KINGS NATIONAL PARKS, MONO LAKE, MAMMOTH LAKES, SAN LUIS OBISPO, MORRO BAY, BIG SUR, MONTEREY, CARMEL, the NAPA VALLEY, SACRAMENTO and LAKE TAHOE - From June 21st to July 9th, 2013 - # 044 !
EL CAPITÁN !
The day before it was supposed to be my first day at that wonderful place! But since the next day to my arrival in San Francisco, weather in northern California changed and sunny summer became windy, cold and rainy! So I had to change my plans and visited some attractions in eastern Sierra Nevada where the weather was better! Therefore, this day was my first one in YOSEMITE and it was such a wonderful weather! However, as it is usual by that time of the year it was pretty crowded with tourists! But, at least it didn't bother me too much, although I don't like to travel this time of the year (both in Northern in Southern hemisphere) exactly because of this fact: too many people around!
The beauty and imposing majesty of "EL CAPITÁN" would make up for all the minor problems caused by having too many people around!
Good there were always places one could pull over and admire the scenery!

I'll bet Ansel Adams would turn in his grave if he saw all this traffic right next to his beloved el Capitan! You've captured the modern reality of the place, obviously quite deliberately, and that's quite valid. I doubt it would be too difficult to remove this evidence of modernity if you'd wanted to. One of Ansel Adams many photographs of this place is here. But I'm sure you know his work already!

Splendid view of El Capitan. But what I do not like - all these cars here. I would cut them off (on photo, not possible in real :)).

Wow, a beautiful view indeed. You captured the scene with sharp details and a nice colour tone. Chosen POV is also very good to show that beauty. Love the sky as a backdrop of such a rocky hill. Great shot Neyvan. Thanks. Thanks for sharing.

All your posts on the series about the El-Capitan are most intriguing and impressive.
This POV show how enthusiastic are the people/tourists of the magnificent sight from the roadside.
The rock itself is a mighty one nature's monument.
A remarkable and yet formidable, superb taken shots.

a presença de caros, tantos deles, dá uma boa informação e contraste com os elementos naturais. o ângulo é maravilhoso e apanha bem a majestosidade do paredão rochoso. também evito épocas de grande movimento para viajar, vou sempre na primavera/outono.
