El Capitan

Photo and caption by Michael Dalberti

I cannot express through words how wonderful this moment was, but I will try. I was in the middle of the Merced river, waiting for some type of light to show through the clouds to brighten up this historic rock wall. It seemed that it was going to be a bust for color since it became overcast through the entire sky. I was about to leave when I turned around and the peak was on fire with color. I've only had a couple of moments that took my breath away, and this was one of them. I was blessed with such an amazing display and it will be a moment I will never forget.

Location: Yosemite National Park, CA
