Sunrise over Half-Dome, mid July 2009
"Day breaks in Yosemite with a chorus of song-- the robins are in full voice. The trees sleep on for the winds are not yet awake, and no whisper of gossip is rumored through the sleeping foliage. The sun comes up behind Half-Dome, and long fingers of light feel their way into the valley. It is a smooth warm morning in late June, and as the trees sleep on, the heavens become alive with great puffy clouds, which commence to wander aimlessly across the blue sky."
~Enid Michael 1941
