God rays on Footstool

As I was climbing the ridge to Mitre Peak, shafts of sunlight broke through the clouds and onto Deepwater Basin and Footstool. We didn’t make it to the summit in the end due to the weather coming in, but it is still there for next time. Shot on a Panasonic DMC-LX5 at f/8 and a shutter speed of 1/50 and ISO 400.
