[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
El Capitan is a favorite for experienced rock climbers. Rising more than 3,000 feet above the Valley floor, it is the largest monolith of granite in the world. El Capitan is opposite Bridalveil Fall and is best seen from the roads in western Yosemite Valley, including Tunnel View, Bridalveil Fall area, and El Capitan Meadow.

Hallo Chuck
What an interesting posting, and wow it is really a enormous piece of granite. Normally I would not like people or in this case vehicles in an image but here it is essential to give scale to the hugeness of this solid granite. Once again this is a beautiful photograph, the trees in front of the "rock" giving it an ingenious appearance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Chuck,
I agree with Anna about the vehicles and people, but must admit this is sure one gorgeous scene. You have done an awesome job of composing this shot, which shows the true beauty of this unique place. Love your choice to go B&W as it give the scene an interesting and mystical perspective. Great work!!
