Storm Cell Over Mount Dana, Sunset

Storm Cell Over Mount Dana, Sunset. Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, California. July 24, 2010. © Copyright G Dan Mitchell - all rights reserved.

 

An evening storm cell winds down over Mount Dana beyond Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, California.

 

This is a wider view of a scene I photographed in late July on an evening when thunderstorm cells were floating around the Sierra Nevada crest east of Tuolumne Meadows. This cell had conveniently centered itself directly above and behind Mount Dana, the highest peak on this section of the crest right above Tioga Pass, and was dropping virga (rain that doesn't make it to the ground) over the peak in the sunset light.
