  • Learn to photograph water to achieve stunning results, from the “cotton candy” effect of a fast-moving stream to reflections of a gently rippling lake.
  • Capture spectacular sunrise photographs from the famous Tunnel View.
  • Harness the sun's color-enhancing properties in shots of the "fire" on El Capitan and of the granite monolith Half Dome in the final light of day.
