El Capitan

In Yosemite National Park, one of the most remarkable rock formations is that of El Capitan. It’s the face that Alex Honnold free solo’d in Free Solo, and Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson climbed in The Dawn Wall.

I was very lucky to capture this scene on a day with mixed clouds and sun. Shooting landscapes without any clouds or additional elements in the atmosphere can lack drama. If you’re ever out shooting in the wilderness, a good tip is to never underestimate the beauty that inclement weather can provide you.
