At the end of the Glacier Point loop, you can admire Half-Dome, a stone mountain cut squarely by glaciers eons ago. Pentax K1 with FA* 28-70 mm f/2.8 @ 53 mm and f/11. This iconic site was immortalized by Ansel Adams more than 50 years ago.

I've been looking at this fascinating shot for a long time and wondering what the collapse, if it was sudden, did to the valley below, very well taken.

Excellent image Richard! Did you use a polarizing filter on this shot?

I'm guessing the glacier carried the rocks away over a large area.

If travel becomes possible again, I'll be visiting Yosemite this summer. I'll be sure to go at the end of that loop! Thanks for sharing.

Todd :

Lightly filtered with a CPL to remove reflections on the bare rock but not so much as to render the blue sky objectionable. Shadows are a little too bluish though.

Bernard :

The Glacier Point loop is the southernmost road in the park, near the Entrance on California SR 41 leading to Fresno. I planned to go West this summer again but each day that passes makes me doubt that it will be feasable this year. Borders will be sealed this Friday for tourists.
