So now someone has photoshopped the fake photo to make it look as if it appears on government property? The illusion continues. winking smiley

McFly,
You wanna post the picture so we can read the sign?
I guess I have to assume Tony sent you the photo? He got paid for his photo?
Where is the photo located? What reservoir? San Luis?

This "last chapter" is worse than "No Country for Old Men".
I want my money back!

It's at the Gin Flat turnout on 120 about 4 miles up from the Toulumne grove parking lot. Bird brain, you've been by there many times and have my stories about winter camping there.

Ok, can someone explain what I am seeing? Ok, I get that someone photoshopped in Half Dome with a grain elevator, but for what purpose?

Not photoshopped. See this video from Mike:

There is also a previous, infinitely-long thread on the subject (mostly perpetuated by people that don't understand optics).

There have also been shots the other way.
If you think it's bollocks... then go spend the night up near Half Dome or Clouds...

From Diving Board:

From near Sentinel Rock:

My plan to get the shot from the top of Mt. Clark hasn't been exercised yet.
And I wasn't able to make it to the top of Foerster in day from Clover Mdw to get it from there.

Since Mike posted on WhitneyZone, I thought I'd add a pointer. The third post down shows the picture below that I created from Tony Immoos' work with labels on all the visible peaks I could identify.

There are quite a few more links in the post below it, too.

The WPSMB thread is here.

Here's the annotated picture. Click on it for the full-size, then click on that to zoom in.

That's very cool, I always assumed the front ranges blocked the view of those features. Does someone have a map location to find that spot?

What a disappointment.



No mention of who took the photo. No mention of where photo taken.
Whoever makes these decisions ... I just dunno.

This photo should be 4ft. x 24 ft. in the visitors center. And a nice writeup with where it was taken.
Also, like in Lick Observatory (which has a photo of HD from Copernicus Pk) you should also
be able to buy a nice photo of it in the gifty shop with some of the proceeds going to Tony.

Pretty cool they put it up... but 99.9999999999% of peeps looking at the photo will not give it a second thought.
