El Capitan is a Granite Monolith , Located in Yosemite National park in California . Its a favorite location for rock climbers and photographers .
Photographs dont really convey the massive size of this rock until you see it for your self . I spent almost a week in the Yosemite national park while I was over in the united states and loved it, even . Its a photographers paradise , There were a few locations I really wanted to go to while I was over there but couldn’t unfortanlty as the roads were still blocked due to such a cold start to summer and they were still under inches of snow . Would love to go back some time and photograph the valley while it is all covered in snow .
While I was over there Also visted the Ansel Adams gallery , which is what inspired me to try this in B&W .
This was a three image vertical stitch taken with the Canon 5 D MKII , Canon 70-200MM F2.8 , I had originally pictured this image in color with a bright blue sky but had a quick muck around with it in black and white in PS , Will try and re edit again next week when I pick up Nik Silver Efex Pro software .
