Photographer Tom Schwabel Featured On Sierra Club 2020 Calendar Cover

October 14th, 2019 - Portland, OR

"The Cloud Whisperer", Tom Schwabel's wintertime photograph of Yosemite Valley at sunset has been featured on the cover of the Sierra Club 2020 Wilderness Calendar. The photograph features a foreground of snow covered grasses in Cook Meadow with serendipitous clouds mirroring the patterns in the grasses. A perfect reflection of Half Dome catching the last light of sunset is framed between the snow covered grasses. A lot of elements came together at the very last minute to make this photograph possible, and Schwabel knew the minute he happened upon this scene in the rush to find a location for sunset that this was the shot.

As the #2 best-selling Nature Calendar on Amazon with more than 10 million copies sold, the Sierra Club Wilderness Calendar has been America's best-loved wall calendar for more than 40 years.
