Merced River in Yosemite National Park, California

Pro photographer Jim Shoemaker captured this February sunrise reflected in the Merced River in Yosemite National Park, California. "The sun was just breaking the horizon, long before it cleared the canyon wall," the California resident writes. This is an HDR image using five frames of different exposures. Shoemaker used a Canon 20D, a 16-35mm lens and a tripod.
