Yosemite Valley Starry Night

Yosemite National Park

A beautifully clear night capturing the night sky over Yosemite Valley.
It was very cool to see lights from climbers on the faces of El Capitan
and Half Dome. Jupiter is the bright spot in the upper right, with the
Pleiades and Hyades being the star clusters in the center of this image.

Many thanks to fellow PBaser Bryan Murahashi for providing the opportunity
to photograph something like this. Had he not been with me I would have never
known to go out and photograph the night sky from that vantage point.
