This was the first thing I saw as I walked the short distance from the parking lot to the lip of the canyon overlooking the monument. This rock in the foreground and it's twin to the right are part of a famous Ansel Adams photographic composition. They have been photographed by countless photographers through the years. I wouldn't be surprised to find out this particular composition has been done a million times or so. Still, it is a slice in time never to be repeated no matter how original or not it is.
