Capitán in the Light
Yosemite National Park, California
El Capitán stands looming in the background, with the first rays of the setting sun shining against its face. The Yosemite creek flows gently through the valley; it is hard to imagine this tiny vein of water carving out this valley.
The rule of thirds is an important tool in photographic composition, and it came in handy with this photo. The idea is to split your frame into imaginary thirds, then compose with the main subjects at the intersecting lines. It helps to create a more pleasing image.
In this case, the logs help to draw the eye up into the image where it ends at the plateau of El Cap, drenched in sunlight
