On the southern shoulder of Half Dome, a blade of granite known as “The Diving Board” projects wildly out into space, 3500 feet above the Valley floor. This one of the most sublime views on earth, with the whole of the massive northwest face of Half Dome soaring into the sky directly in front of you. The perspective is perfect; the angle affords the viewer a complete view of the width and breadth of the northwest face, while the Jeffrey Pines growing along the base completes the sense of scale. The photograph and accompanying short film took 6 trips in July and August 2006 waiting for clouds to add depth to the sky while not obscuring the clean early evening light.
