These were all taken Wednesday afternoon using my smartphone camera. I will be posting pictures taken with the digital camera later.
The “nose” of El Capitan faces south so pictures in the morning highlight the southeastern face of the formation. These were taken in the afternoon, so the first two (taken around 2 o’clock) have both the southeast (right side of photo) and southwest (left side of photo) getting sunshine.
These next shots were taken around 230 pm so as the sun moves west across the sky the southeast exposure falls into shade.
Here is a three-shot panorama, top to bottom, of the southwest face which is now getting more direct sunlight:
And before leaving the Park for the day, here are the final two pictures, taken around 5 o’clock.
