Granite Cliffs in Yosemite

Taken at Tunnel View.

The rock on the left is El Capitan, which is supposed to be the biggest granite rock in the world and attract many rock climbers. For more details, please see the photo below. It is so huge and we could hardly see rock climbers without help of large binoculars. (Even my 200mm tele-photo lens did not find any climbers.)

On the right hand corner in the shadow, there is bridalveil falls. By the end of August, there was not much water, but nevertheless strong wind from below was blowing water, making it just look like a bridal veil.

Far in the middle, we can see a tip of Half Dome.
