Lunchtime Photo

Yosemite National Park, North Dome. I took this picture as we were coming down the Vernal Fall trail. The late afternoon sun provided a lovely bit of color and our height gave me a nice angle to shoot from. Five minutes later the sun had dropped enough that North Dome was just a gray rock again. Light comes at you fast sometimes.
