Glory, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

Crawling out of my sleeping bag to the sounds of a massive rock slide (here’s the story), I found the Yosemite Valley floor filled with dust. Whatever the cause, the crepuscular rays wrought by the rising sun struck me (and the other observer in this photo) as glorious and spectacular.

Essentially monochrome, I converted the image to black and white in Photoshop using multiple black & white adjustment layers (my process for b&w conversion is partly explained here).

[Nikon D300, 18-200 VR Zoom lens at 32mm (48mm in 35mm terms), 1/400 of a second at f/5 and ISO 100, handheld.]
