Yosemite Valley and Bridalveil Falls from Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park, California, USA

Tunnel View, within Yosemite National Park, is a viewpoint on State Route 41 located directly east of the Wawona Tunnel as one enters Yosemite Valley from the South. The view looks east into Yosemite Valley including the southwest face of El Capitan, Half Dome, and Bridalveil Falls. This is, to many, the first views of the popular attractions in Yosemite. Many cars stop right outside of the tunnel to take pictures and absorb the visual aesthetics.

While the sunrise after the snow storm was quite nice and colourful and I do like it, I prefer this black and while view of the Yosemite Valley and Bridalveil Falls from Tunnel View lookout. Snow covered peaks, mountains and trees and morning fog was laying in the valley making the entire scene very graphical.
