Photo of the Month - Yosemite's Half Dome

Photo of the Month

This image was taken by Tom Zinneman at Yosemite National Park on June 9, 2005. It won the PSA Award of Merit and took Third Place, scoring 14 points in the final PSA Photo Travel Competition for 2013-14 year and has won acceptances in numerous other competitions. The camera was a Canon EOS 10D camera with a Canon EF 17-40mm lens set at 40mm. The camera settings were 1/20 sec at an aperture setting of f22. Exposure bias was set at -0.33 EV and ISO was 200. It had been raining all day and we took a chance during the evening hours and went out to photograph Half Dome. It was completely clouded in. However, after about a 1 hour wait, there was about a 5-minute break in the clouds when the sun shown through creating the fantastic lighting shown in the image.
