Dreamworld (Yosemite)

Dreamworld (Yosemite)

We arrived at the Upper Pines campground around 2 AM following our drive from the San Jose Airport. So we didn't see anything along the way except for some fruit signs in Fresno and wild eyes glittering in the forests as we approached Yosemite Valley from Wawona. After quietly setting up our tent (total stealth mode!) we crawled into our sleeping bags and fell asleep. We awoke later that morning to dreamworld of granite walls, waterfalls, wild animals and so much to explore.

Dreamworld was published by National Geographic to the Daily Dozen feature on June 15, 2017. From National Geographic photo Editor Matt Adams, "I love your title for this image, Lee. It definitely feels like a dreamworld that I am looking at. The low hanging clouds really set this landscape image part from ones that might be similar. You captured a great moment here, there's a nice mix of shadows and light that add some interesting layers to this photo."
