Tunnel View is the most popular scenic overlook in Yosemite National Park. The large viewpoint area is located directly east of the Wawona Tunnel portal, as one enters Yosemite Valley. The view looks eastward into the valley, and includes surrounding features, such as the southwest face of El Capitan on the left, Half Dome on axis, and Bridalveil Fall on the right.
The iconic and expansive view of Yosemite Valley from the Tunnel View point have been seen and documented by visitors since it opened in 1933. Internationally renowned artists to casual tourists have painted, drawn, and photographed the dramatic scenery from here and nearby vantage points since the 19th century. Ansel Adams was famous for taking breathtaking black and white photography of the park and even has his gallery there. I was inspired to do some black and white as well.
