For our second hike on our second day in Yosemite we walked out to Taft Point, a magnificent spot overlooking Yosemite Valley. We visited Taft Point in the late afternoon so we had to contend with a lot of haze in the valley. The haze actually added a lot of impact to the photos that we shot, giving a greater sense of depth to the canyon walls. You really have to be careful here as there are no railings to keep you safely back from the edge of the cliffs. It was a little nerve-racking to stand close enough to the edge to get photos like this. It seems like everywhere you go in Yosemite there is jaw-dropping beauty and Taft Point was no exception!
