Fine art photo by John Baggaley of Half Dome with purple skies in Yosemite, California.Half Dome with Purple Skies

I took this photo of Half Dome just after sunset at Glacier Point. It's a beautiful place to watch the sun set. The sun slowly falls below the rim of Yosemite Valley, casting a partial shadow on Half Dome. As it falls, a park ranger gives a talk about the valley before a crowd of tourists. It's a beautiful and fun experience.

I took many photos of Half Dome while the sun was setting, but it's this photo of Half Dome after sunset that I like most. I really like the pink and purple sky and I like that there's still enough light to get plenty of detail in the rocks and tress.
