New on 500px : Sleepless by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

Are you sick of this view yet? While I know it’s a popular one, it just amazes me every time I see it. After sticking out sunset, I debated heading back right after, or sticking around longer to catch the milky way rising above. The choice was easy, and I stayed put and waited for the skies to turn dark, and boy does it get dark out here! As the light fell to dark, I watched as lights moved throughout the landscape. There were hikers, climbers, etc all scattered throughout this scene and it was pretty interesting to see some climbers and hikers way out on half dome as their lights flashed on and off. The silence was only broken by the sound of Vernal and Nevada falls, yet, was still a deafening silence. At this point I was all alone and was constantly looking around shining the headlamp in various directions hoping that a bear wasn’t coming to share the view. Luckily, no bears, and after the milky way got too high, I packed up and made the almost four hour drive back across to mono lake to catch the milky way once again before sunrise. Non stop shooting for almost 30 straight hours! Hope you enjoy! P.S. It’s Yosemite’s 150th birthday today, so I figured posting this shot would be appropriate
