The art of transit

photo by John Delcourt, via Flickr


As I’ve said before, if a photo says something about getting from Point A to Point B, it’s eligible for our daily “art of transit” post. If you haven’t guessed already, the above photo — which I love, love, love — was taken of Yosemite National Park, looking to the east from an airplane. That’s Half Dome in the lower righthand side at the base of Tenaya Canyon. If you look close to the right of Half Dome you can see a Vernal Fall. That’s Mono Lake on the far lefthand side of the frame and Crowley Lake, near Mammoth Lakes, is just visible below the plane’s engine.

Excellent work, John! The photo was taken with the iPhone’s Hipstamatic app, by the way.

  1. That is an amazing photograph! I really like how the sun created a starburst effect in the sky.
