"Inspiration Point" is the label assigned in some countries to a tourist attraction from which a natural panorama of great visual impact can be observed. This work focuses specifically in Tunnel View, a lansdscape archetype located in Yosemite Valley, California, historically photographed to satiety by all types of photographers. Its dramatic topography, ease of access by car and the imposition of a fixed vantage point, forces visitors to consume and reproduce a prefabricated image. All this, added to the infallibility of today's photographic technology and the versatility of digital devices facilitate an almost endless availability of ideal representations in the worldwide web.
