Ahwahnee Meadow Natural Spotlight

The other day Tony Immoos dropped by my office on his way into the park to bring me a present, a wonderful framed print of a photo I‘ve long admired that Tony took. While we were talking he got to telling me about how he’d noticed a particular event that takes place every year about this time and how he was on a mission to capture that event with his camera.

Tony: For a few days around the 1st of May in Yosemite NP, the sun rises in the gap between Half Dome and Washington Column and for just a couples minutes the small aspen grove in Ahwahnee Meadow is backlit by the sun while most of the meadow is still in shade. I first saw this occurrence in the timelapse at halfdome.net two years ago and I was able to capture it this year. “

In those immortal words of the great Hannibal Smith, “I love it when a plan comes together.”

Great shot, Tony. Be sure to check out more of Tony’s work on Flickr and feel free to add your own stuff to the Yosemite Blog Group Pool.
