|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Half Dome is nearly as whole as it ever was. The impression from the valley floor that this is a round dome which has lost its northwest half is an illusion. From Glacier Point or from Washburn Point, Half Dome can be seen as a thin ridge of rock oriented northeast-southwest, with its southeast side almost as steep as its northwest side except for the very top. Although the trend of this ridge, as well as that of Tenaya Canyon, is probably controlled by master joints, 80 percent of the northwest "half" of the original dome may well still be there.|

Almost thirty years ago we made a tracking through Yosemite NP and we saw the beauty of this Half Dome. You made a wonderful photo of it in sepia colours, like a painting. Very beautiful light and a fantastic composition.
