In late June of 2020 I found myself at the notch beneath the summit of Cathedral Peak in Yosemite National Park. This is an airy spot, with phenomenal views on all sides. To the west rose the needle-like spire of Eichorn Pinnacle, the north featured granite domes stretching on seemingly forever, and the west was covered in UFO shaped Lenticular clouds. See my other 2 images of Eichorn Pinnacle, and the Dana Crest that I made on this evening.
It was to the south that took my breath away when I made this photograph. Warm glowing light covered the whimsical peaks, spires and ridges of the Cathedral Range in the foreground, while farther back the dark and brooding high peaks of the Lyell group can be seen. This is an incredibly dynamic spot - and not an easy one to get to. I look forward to returning again.
