El Capitan, Yosemite NP, California, USA
Title:El Capitan, Yosemite NP, California, USA
OM-4; Tamron SP 60-300/3.8-5.4 @ 300 mm, handheld; Kodak Portra 160NC
Exposure details unrecorded, probably 1/500 @ f8 or so.
Scanned on Canon FS4000 @ 4000 dpi using icc profile. Printed on Epson R1800 using Qimage.
EVERYBODY shoots El Cap full length to show that amazing 3,000 granite monolith.
I think a tele shot of the top is more powerful, with the in your face massiveness of the rock
kept in perspective by the size of the trees. One of my very favorite Yosemite shots.
I like it on its own merits - and also because it is a bit different in a place where it seems every shot
has already been taken a zillion times. The shiny areas are where water seeps down the face
in a very wet spring.
