Landscape Highly Honored: Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Valley
(Sandy Follett)
“Tunnel View is one of Yosemite’s iconic landmarks. The breathtaking vista offers beautiful landscapes every season of the year. In my photography, I am always looking for that special moment in nature when light exhibits spiritual qualities. Waiting for a break in the weather late one overcast afternoon, I knew the setting sun would highlight both El Capitan and Bridalveil Falls. I was very lucky to capture this rainbow, signifying hope in the midst of the dark clouds.” - Photographer Sandy Follett
