El Capitan – Morning Pictures

These were taken Monday and Wednesday mornings using my smartphone camera.

The “nose” of El Capitan faces south so the southwest exposure is shaded in the morning:

As I move further east along the one-way road leading in to the Valley I start to see more of the southeast exposure (to the right of the “nose” from this vantage point).  It was also hard to position myself to get clear shots looking through the trees.

You will see slightly closer, slightly fuller views of the southeast exposure in the early afternoon pictures in the next post.
