Yosemite Valley from Glacier Point--5 minute exposure

Last night, I headed up to Glacier Point in Yosemite to shoot some night photos with the light of the 1st quarter moon. Unfortunately, it was mostly cloudy and I couldn't see any stars until much later. So, to pass the time, I took some long exposures of the valley floor, 3000ft below me. This is my favorite one because the clouds/fog in the northwest are lifting enough to let some twilight come through. This is a 5-minute exposure to show the movement of cars down in Yosemite Valley below.
