Paintings that are amazingly done are often compared to photographs. And when photographs turn out well, they’re often compared to paintings. This image from Yosemite Valley taken by photographer Jim Wiltschko on a winter morning is an example of the latter case. The scenery looks so surreal that it’s easy to mistake it for a painting:
Wiltschko took the image using his Sony a7R III with a 28–70mm lens at 33mm. He took three shots and merged them to capture the huge dynamic range.
The composition is quite amazing considering that Wiltschko managed to have the El Capitan rock formation on the left, the Half Done in the middle, and the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls on the right. Moreover, the fog looks like some kind of magic pouring out from the falls.
