An amazing piece of rock. BravoRe: El Capitan 2017Reply #2 on: May 24, 2022 at 5:48 pm
Thanks Paul. When I saw your version of El Capitan it reminded me of that trip. I was particularly attuned to El Capitan because my nephew was working in Yosemite as a volunteer the previous summer. He was climbing El Capitan (with ropes) with a friend when he accidentally dropped his pack, which fell 600 feet. He lost his food/water/shirt and non-climbing shoes, but decided to continue to the top. Had to hike back to the valley in his climbing shoes and got a sunburn on the way. While I have hiked and backpacked for decades, that photo is the closest I will get to climbing El Capitan.

Yikes. Glad that was all that fell.

Nice, John, and you can get rid of the contrail in Camera Raw.Not hard to do.Re: El Capitan 2017Reply #5 on: May 25, 2022 at 10:06 am
Yes, Russ, but I liked the contrail. I have other shots without it.

Fair enough, John. I liked contrails when I was flying F-84s, but I don’t much care for them in pictures.
