I went to Yosemite after got couple of warnings from my friend there will be raining in this place. I took my chance. Left home around 10 pm sunday I arrived here, at Tunnel View around 4 am. It was raining hard outsite and I was thinking i'm going home without anything for this trip. around 7:30 AM the sun finally came out and an hour later I got my momment. it was so amazing how a same place can have so many looks.

It's like Heaven should look, simply Glorious.
I have bee here before but never seen this gift of beauty.

Wow, it was sure worth the wait, Phuoc! Everything is just right--the mix of fog, snow and clouds, your framing, and of course the golden light. What more can I say? Spectacular! Regards, Ken.

The athmosphere is of quite calmness.
I like the contraposition of waterfall at right with the stone iluminated wall.

Wowwww! You were really rewarded for your drive to Yosemite and the long wait. The colors are awesome and the photo is fabulous!
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-12-27 4:17
Its usual to say Whao here when we see a great picture, so I will...
This Yosemite composition is realy a beautiful one, a decisive moment of light in this gran ' landscape.
You have done well in all this composition.
Cliffy (590) 2005-12-27 4:17
Even the great Ansel Adams would have been proud of this shot,the balance of the composition is excellent and the way you have captured the lighting from grey shadows to the gold on the mountain to the left is superb.The lighting is not the easiest to contro;l but you have got detail in the shadows without burning out the highlights.My favourite bit here is not the golden mountain but that gorgeous ribbon of water from the waterfall over on the right hand side.
Kirych (2703) 2005-12-27 5:36
Excellent view, beautiful and unusual colours of sky and mountains. Wonderful compo and sharpening is attractive here.
I already want to be here.
TFS and regards.
dolin (15647) 2005-12-27 5:44
Waouhhhh incredible and beautiful.
A marvelous naturasl scene with some nice colors and a good game of light-shadows.
The POV, the dof, the very good quality and sharpness....
A dreaming moment.
peter1892 (1681) 2005-12-27 5:49
Wow. Amazing colours, well worth the effort of getting up early & putting up with the rain. Well done!
dkeus31 (27735) 2005-12-27 6:02
Superb light on the vertical face!
Nice clouds above the trees.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2005-12-27 6:09
You captured this beautiful place in the best moment. The lights are amazing. It`s worth sometimes to wait for such a moment.
Svillegas (1169) 2005-12-27 6:15
Wonderful shot, the light and the fog give a very dramatic effect to the image. Great job
xlgo (562) 2005-12-27 7:11
What a fantastic shot- it has gone straight into my favourites.The colours are simply awsone with such clarity and detail.I realy love the way the light mist in the valley contrasts with the dark trees.The golden colour on the mountain is particularly lovely.
It dos not get any better than this.
Jorn (65) 2005-12-27 8:58
Impressive with clouds!!Nice composition. Nice colors! Excellent!
SamB (1948) 2005-12-27 10:03
Beautiful shot, you've done Yosemite proud with this one. The only extraneous content is the tree at the lower right. You've managed to keep it very subtle, however in an ideal composition it wouldn't be there at all. This really doesn't detract from this shot though--terrific lighting, a very powerful and majestic feeling emphasized by the rising clouds around El Cap as it is beautified in the alpenglow.
ngythanh (8580) 2005-12-27 10:33
I still have your first photos posted in Vietbao.com to compare with these current pictures you took. Not only the high-level range of your achievement the lesson for me, I am trying to see if I could detect the secret of how did you make that large jump in such a limit of time?
Many techs you used but I don't know about, and many tips you told but my mind was too aged to absorb. I wish I can take a brief course and a field trip with you.
Philippe (11836) 2005-12-28 4:07
Hello, Phuoc. What a wonderful view yopu offer us here. The colours are fantastic and it looks as if the clouds are gradually unveiling the panorama for you. The mist in the valley adds a special touch to it.
huynt (5079) 2005-12-28 4:14
Wow. Nhu chon than tien. Em moi lam mot holidays tuyet voi qua ha!! chuc mung. Vua roi ve Hue hop mua roi deu deu. May ma co vai tam o lang Thanh Thuy
amstel (2388) 2005-12-28 7:54
Impressive shot. The colours of the morning are absolutely stunning. You created a superb atmosphere here. And Yosemite - a place you'll never forget!
Marche (4307) 2005-12-28 8:03
Extraordinaire cliché et couleurs magnifiques. Être là au bon moment.....et rendre si bien cette atmosphère, quel bonheur cette vue.
Je la mets dans mes favoris.
Merci de nous faire partager une aussi belle vue.
Meilleurs vœux de fin d'année.
MichaelTrezzi (3368) 2005-12-29 15:46
This is like a romantic dream. Congratullations. The fog and the Bridaveil waterfall ads a lot of mystic. Well done. Cheers, Michael
MikeBonsall (22) 2006-01-27 5:45
wow this is so nice. I prefer this to your more recent posted version which I find a little dark. Mind you that may be my monitor. The light on the cliff and the cloud in the valley. This goes to show that to the photographer 'bad weather' can so very quickly turn into great weather!!
Yuanclarkson (38) 2006-02-17 14:13
Two more points from me are nothing to this successful shot, but I must say (or repeat?) that you did good on this one.
Should be in the form of giant billboard to promote the beauty of nature.
Thanks for telling us.
pboehringer (770) 2006-05-05 20:09
I just started with TE and I went through tons of pictures. I live, so to speak, just around the corner of Yosemite N. P.; but I never saw such awsome light and colors coming out of the tunnel. All your pictures from this spot are just mind blowing. They are like form another dimension. I cannot believe that you didn't do any WS on this picture. I hope that we will meet each other at some of our Yosemite excursions and I may learn a lot from you.
Thanks for sharing this stunning picture!
bend1k (934) 2006-06-09 20:44
nice shot. i would prefer the foreground to be just a little brighter, maybe about 1/3 stop for a little more detail
nicoz (1979) 2006-08-24 13:19
wow, this looks just amazing!!! It looks unreal. I prefere this one than the second one made out of 9 stitched photos, 'cause there is more details in the valley, with all the clouds, pine trees etc... The other one is very good too though...
Worth waking up at 4!!!
rigoletto (34269) 2006-10-23 18:49
Unearthy I would say. Have you ever been to Mars Phuoc?
Goes directly into my favourites.

Just two words: AMAZING PERFECTION
Robpulp (917) 2006-12-13 10:52
Ansel Adams suck on this!!!! This is great, however I would try and lighten the waterfull as Ansel Adams has in his captures of this area. Great work, one for the favourates I think!!!
siislam (290) 2008-01-16 17:43
This is a stunning picture, amazing capture of the early morning fog, lovely colours and contrast, Well Taken! Regards...Syed

Hi Phuoc, its a magical moment. Your persistence has paid off. Thanks for sharing...Alex
danydan (312) 2009-08-31 6:35
Une superbe lumière qui met parfaitement en valeur ces montagnes.
On pourrait juste regretter que la partie basse de l'image soit un peu sous exposée.
PeterDF (419) 2009-08-31 6:48
Remarkable photo and moment...and it has a very solemn and almost relgious feel to it...if that is a way to describe a natural scene. Great photograph.
photoray (12679) 2010-08-15 17:50
I have seen many images from Tunnel View and yours is very attractive, especially the winter atmosphere and varying cloud layers.
And it must have been tough to drive all night to get here?
ChaputFranck (20) 2011-01-22 5:34
Magnifique ambiance, bravo Phuoc !
Rafer (15385) 2013-12-19 9:19
Supersonic shor.. the best shot of the Yosemite Parc...Congra
tenretin (2436) 2014-04-07 14:35
Votre photo tient plus du tableau que de la réalité... Mais c'est tout de même impressionnant de réalisme.
