The Milky Way arches over Half Dome and the Yosemite High Country. Each year there are a couple nights where the Milky Way arches perfectly over Half Dome and the faint light of the milky way is perfectly balanced with a partial moon. I try to shoot this image each year, partly to improve upon past renditions but also simply to sit alone at night atop Glacier Point and savor the view, Yosemite National Park, California

Glacial erratic boulders atop Olmsted Point, with the massive granite monoliths Half Dome and Clouds Rest in the background. Erratics are huge boulders left behind by the passing of glaciers which carved the granite surroundings into their present-day form.  When the glaciers melt, any boulders and other geologic material that it was carrying are left in place, sometimes many miles from their original location, Yosemite National Park, California

Panorama of the Minarets at sunrise, near Mammoth Mountain.  The Minarets are a series of seventeen jagged peaks in the Ritter Range, west of Mammoth Mountain in the Ansel Adams Wilderness.  These basalt peaks were carved by glaciers on both sides of the range.  The highest of the Minarets stands 12,281 feet above sea level, Mammoth Lakes, California

Clouds Rest viewed from Olmsted Point. Clouds Rest is one of the most massive -- if not the singlemost massive -- granite monoliths in the world. A vast lobe of Mesozoic-era granodiorite magma cooled to rock and was gradually uplifted to its present altitude of 9926 ft. Later, glaciers cut it into its present shape, Yosemite National Park, California

Devil's Postpile, a spectacular example of columnar basalt.  Once molten and under great pressure underground, the lava that makes up Devil's Postpile cooled evenly and slowly, contracting and fracturing into polygonal-sided columns.  The age of the formation is estimated between 100 and 700 thousand years old.  Sometime after the basalt columns formed, a glacier passed over the formation, cutting and polishing the tops of the columns.  The columns have from three to seven sides, varying because of differences in how quickly portions of the lava cooled, Devils Postpile National Monument, California

South Georgia Island coastline, showing the island's characteristic rugged topography.  56% of the island is covered by 161 glaciers, which have created numerous large bays and inlets that provide excellent habitat for marine animals and seabirds. Mountains meet the sea in steep-sided seacliffs covered with sparse vegetation.  The highest point on South Georgia Island is Mt. Paget at 2,915m
