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
