Scale

Yosemite Valley was clearly carved by glaciers, and it’s easy to lose perspective on the scale of the place. While driving in and out, you get glimpses beyond the forest towering over the roads. Taking the time to stop at vista points you get a few impressions of distance, and looking up you often see the towering rock cliffs. But flying, even high overhead and at somewhat hazy zoom lens distance you can compare the size of Half Dome with the height of the “tiny” eighty foot trees surrounding it.
