El Capitan, Yosemite, CA

Taken early Saturday morning; actually the same day that I took my Abandoned Religion entry.

I just love the range of colors shown here. Everything from Red, Orange, Yellow, & Green in the trees and field; to the Blue, Gray, & Whites of the sky.

I was about the 145th entry into this challenge. Maybe I can place about the same or better in the final results....145th place or beter out of 750+ entries?!

(Post score): Yea, 58th! I'm happy with this score. Thanks everyone for the comments; they are truely great. -BB

Man I love this spot, it has to be one of the most peaceful and beautiful places on earth (when there aren't buses full of tourists parked there!)

This is a rad picture, awesome angle and colors like everyone said. I think I would like to see this shot with a more typical landscape aperture. That would require a tripod obviously though because of a pretty long shutter speed. I bet you were hand holding though. Great shot!
