Travelling to the eastern Sierra in fall has to be one of the most rewarding photo trips imaginable. Huge mountains, amazing color, a ghost town and of course Mono Lake, all a feast for the eyes. On this trip in October a few years ago I arrived at Mono Lake in time for sunset, the shore was so crowded with photographers it was impossible to frame a good shot. I managed to squeeze in beside a photographer who had a prime spot with a rock in the foreground but I couldn't get it in my shot. I waited patiently through the sunset knowing that the minute the sun dipped below the horizon many of the photographers would leave, and as I expected the man next to me packed up along with about 80% of the rest and I was able to get some breathing room. By the time the blue hour rolled around only my friends and I were left and I was able to make this image slowly and quietly.
