Yosemite: Sunlight through the Cathedral Gunsight

In the Yosemite Valley on the opposite side from El Capitan, there is a set of large rock formations called the Cathedral Rocks and Spires. In between two of them, there is a sharp cut named, for some reason I do not know, Gunsight.

Saturday, while I was slowly making my way out of Yosemite, the sun was getting lower in the sky and the light in Yosemite began to change. I was passing between the Cathedral Rocks and El Capitan when I glanced to my left. I pulled over and park immediately so I could take some pictures of the sun coming through the slit of the Gunsight and illuminating the tops of some trees with a gorgeous god ray.

I hope you enjoy the photos!
