I was on my way out of Yosemite Valley following a few days of photographing when this early spring scene at an often documented site presented itself to me. Even though the tourist tram makes regular stops here to allow visitors to take pictures, light and weather finally conspired against me so that I could no longer resist committing this iconic view of the Valley to film. Although I had revisited the proof from time to time throughout the years, I withstood persistent urges to make a fine print of the negative, as I felt that it was too much of a calendar shot. That sophistic notion finally changed when my better artistic compulsions eventually persuaded me to make a fine art print. I now consider this to be one of my finest prints. This timeless, incandescent, 24″x30″ mural is the only sepia toned print made from this negative. 4:5 aspect ratio. Negative #120020300704
