Yosemite Valley, California
Driving along the Valley floor in Yosemite, there is more "Heaven" then anywhere else I have been blessed to be on Earth. El Capitan hovers over the floor and is one of the most iconic landmarks and climbing places as well. Probably one of the most photographed places, but none-the-less, I have to pull over, and set up my equipment anyway, because not all photos are created equal.
