Sunset Panorama of Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View.
Nikonians ANPAT 8 — End of Day 1. There were a large number of photographers (in addition to the Nikonians group) lined up at the Tunnel View parking lot to photograph sunset. Many left thinking nothing was going to happen, then all of a sudden sunlight came in from under the clouds from the west to light up both sides of the valley with this incredible orange color. I think that the mist down in the valley is actually smoke from campers cooking dinner.
