Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park, Day to Night™, 2014
The inspiration for this image was the Albert Bierstadt painting “Yosemite Valley.” This perspective required perhaps the most challenging setup I have had— tethered, along with two assistants, to the edge of a rock outcropping at a 45-degree angle on an area the size of a four-by-eight piece of plywood. We captured long night exposures to take advantage of the beautiful moonlight bathing the face of El Capitan. Photographing both the significant moments of the landscape as it transformed throughout the day and night, as well as the remarkable human moments of awe experiencing one of the most iconic national park vistas, was a very important goal in this image. This photograph was the impetus for National Geographic to give me the grant to create a series on the National Parks.

استوحيتُ هذه الصورة من لوحة الرسام ألبرت بيرستادت بعنوان «وادي يوسمايت». لقد كان التقاط هذه الصورة من أصعب المهام التي قمت بها، إذ كنت مربوطاً مع اثنين من فريقي على حافة صخرة بارزة بزاوية 45 درجة على مساحة بحجم قطعة خشب معاكس قياسها أربعة بثمانية. صوّرنا طيلة الليل للاستفادة من انعكاس ضوء القمر الجميل على قمة إل كابيتان. لقد كان هدفنا الرئيسي في هذه الصورة التقاط اللحظات المهمة للمشهد الطبيعي أثناء تحوّله بين النهار والليل، فضلاً عن اللحظات التي تعبّر عن دهشة الأشخاص بهذا المنظر الخلاب. أدت هذه الصورة إلى تشجيع ناشيونال جيوغرافيك على إعطائي منحة لابتكار سلسلة حول الحدائق الوطنية.
