I try to visit the Eastern Sierra of California as often as possible during the autumn as the fall colors in this area are spectacular. After a few cloudless October days, this particular morning appeared to promise a few clouds, so my dog Buddy and I jumped into the truck and drove out to Mono Lake about an hour before first light. We hiked about a quarter of a mile to get into position to photograph the tufa formations, but three other photographers beat us to the spot. We sat and watched the three photographers as they sought out the shooting location they desired which, thankfully left me with the shooting I had previously scouted. We stayed and photographed until about an hour after sunrise. As the sun rose, the clouds dissipated and the early morning light was harsh. Later, reviewing the images captured that morning I was surprised to find this particular image. It was a bit under exposed so the images required some lighting in the image development stage. When I look at this image it brings back fond memories of the many days and long hikes Buddy had accompanied me on to capture beautiful landscapes.
