Yosemite National Park Panoramic Picture

SKU: YOS1
This panoramic photograph of Yosemite National Park was taken by James Blakeway. It features a view of Yosemite Valley with snow-fed Bridalvail Fall on the right side of the valley. Along the left side of the valley is El Capitan, which rises 3,604 feet and is the largest of the many granite domes and peaks. Yosemite lay beneath an ancient sea 500 million years ago. The seabed was thrust upward and molten rock welled up and cooled to form granite. Erosion and Alpine Glaciers carved Yosemite Valley as they cut through the canyon of the Merced River, exposing the granite and El Capitan.

Yosemite National Park Panoramic Pictures

Spanning an area of over 1,200 square miles, Yosemite panoramic pictures capture one of the most popular destinations of the U.S. National Parks system, receiving over 4 million visitors each year. As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Yosemite pictures hold some of the most picturesque geological features within the United States: waterfalls, giant sequoia forests, granite cliffs, and a variety of wildlife.

The largest granite monolith in the world, El Capitan is a common focal point of many Yosemite panoramic pictures and towers over 3,000 feet above the western end of the Yosemite Valley. While this location comprises only 1% of the total park, most visitors stay within the Yosemite Valley area, making it the most photographed and picturesque location. The imagery and beautiful setting captured in Yosemite Park panoramas make its many cliffs, domes and pillars make it one of the most popular rock climbing attractions in the world.
