This is the quintessential Yosemite image known as Tunnel View, made famous by Ansel Adams. It's the first thing you see after traveling through a long tunnel before arriving in the valley from the South and it's simply breathtaking. El Capitan is the large stone monolith on the left, Half Dome
is off in the distance in the center, and the waterfall is Bridalveil Falls
. I captured this image in 2011, about an hour before sunset, and the clouds opened up for only a couple minutes to perfectly illuminate Bridalveil Falls.
This image is available in several sizes, editions, mediums, and prices, all of which are listed in the pull down menu.
Matted and framed images are printed with Epson UltraChrome K3 archival pigment inks on professional Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper. A white archival conservation matte surrounds the image and each print is signed on the front with the edition number. Flat black hardwood frames and standard glass or plexiglass are used for framing and each image includes a certificate of authenticity. When properly framed under glass or plexiglass, these prints are rated to last for over one hundred years with no noticeable change in permanence. High-definition aluminum
prints are created by infusing archival pigment inks into the surface of the aluminum and then sealing the image with a high-gloss finish. These prints have the highest possible archival rating and will literally last forever. They can be hung outdoors and exposed to direct sunlight without any damage and liquids are easily wiped off. A 1/2" spacer (with holes for easy hanging) is attached to the back of the print which pushes the print away from the wall so it appears to float. Aluminum prints are signed on the back with the edition number and include a certificate of authenticity.
