From the Top: Half Dome View

My first view from Half Dome in 1987 was dramatic. Clouds hugged the cliffs, but limited our ability to stay long, too, because of Half Dome's infamous reputation for lightning strikes.

 

Due to discoloration of this old 35mm slide, I desaturated it a little, but maybe the purple tint gives it a somewhat storm-like feel. Compare this with the aerial view.
