Photo of the Day: On the Outside Looking In by Tony Immoos

So if you only read Yosemite Blog in your email or via the RSS feed then you’ve probably been missing the discussion that’s been taking place in the comments for the picture of Half Dome that showed up in the Patterson Irrigator.

Having a little free time and a desire for the truth, Tony Immoos set out on a quest to see if it was possible to get a picture of Half Dome from teh central Valley. The results are above.

Great work. Thanks Tony. You know I’m going to have to see this for myself so every clear day until I see it I’m going to be looking.

Be sure to read Tony’s write-up of his quest on Flickr.

Don’t forget, while you’re on Flickr don’t forget to join our new Flickr group: http://flickr.com/groups/yosemiteblog. Already we have over 30 members and more than 100 beautiful photos in the pool. Thank you everyone who already signed up.

  • Wow! I would never have thought. Very cool.

  • Kudos to you, Tony! That is the most amazing photo I’ve seen in a long time and I am awe-struck by your discovery. It’s like the earth-rise photo taken from the moon…a perspective we’ve never seen before. Thank you so much for your diligence in capturing the year’s best photo of Yosemite.

  • Tony, thank you for viewing my photo that appeared in the February 18th edition of the Patterson Irrigator and taking the initiative to answer for yourself “Is it really possible?” The view of Half Dome from Patterson (and a few other spots in the valley as you have demonstrated) has risen quite a stir here in Patterson as well. I will definitely forward to other Patterson skeptics a link to your photo. Thanks

  • Unbelievable shot. Who would’ve known? Not being from California, it wouldn’t surprise me that I wouldn’t know about this. But we lived in Modesto for a while and I frequented Yosemite while I was there. I would never have dreamed you could see this. Awesome photo!

  • I e-mailed ‘Patterson Irrigator’ photographer Elias Funez and asked him about his fascinating photo.

    He replied and referred me to his blog for a fuller explanation. Here is the link:
