There were several photographers in the meadow near the Yosemite Falls trail watching the clouds turn wonderful colors before sunset. I wanted to convey a sense of the grandeur of the mountains while highlighting the clouds in the sky.
Comments and critiques are most welcome.

This magnificent shot is reminiscent of the American Luminous movement of the 19th century. That glow in the sky as the backdrop to the silhouette of the trees and cliffs creates an inspiring scene, just as beautiful as the works of those great painters of the period.

Yosemite is one of the places that I would visit some day.
Thanks to your photo I can enjoy its great beauty, across an image with a beautiful contrast between the dark silhouettes of the trees and of the grand mountains, and the wonderful chromatic tonalities in the sky at sunset time.
It is an excellent work.
