A Beam of Light Shines on Half Dome in between Storms Day by John P. DeGrazio

We’re experiencing some welcome wet weather in the Sierra this May. Every little bit will help our California drought. The precipitation has affected our Yosemite hiking adventures in a positive way by creating more dramatic skies for interesting photographs. Here is one I was able to take from Glacier Point at the end of our Panorama Trail hike. The light kept teasing us as we made our return trip from Nevada Fall. Just as I was leaving the parking lot, I looked over to see a beam of light shining on Half Dome. Once I safely walked to the edge of the hillside, I was able to capture this image with a faint rainbow at the base of the rock.

We wish everyone a healthy and safe Memorial Day weekend. Please remember the tremendous sacrifices made by so many service men and women who protect our rights and freedoms.
