The story behind the image

We started early in the morning to enter Yosemite National Park from its east entrance, the Tioga Pass Entrance. The Tioga Road leads from Lee Vining into the park. At 9,945 ft (3,301 m) you have great views into the Sierra Nevada. We were extremely lucky to experience those cascading blue tones. Subtle fog and clouds further enhanced the impression of depth. I remember that there was very little traffic, and I had to wait for a while until that truck passed this spot in the image.
