Autumn in the Eastern Sierra #2

Over the next days I moved north, basing myself in Lee Vining. From there I explored areas south along the June Lake Loop and north toward Conway Summit. Here are some photos from the rest of the trip. But I start with an abstract image of the mountain reflected in the ripples of the lake from my first day.

The next three images were taken along the June Lake Loop, an area that I have only just begun to explore.

The next four photos were from a high vantage point were you can look down on an expanse of aspens, open lands, and a mix of willows. I especially love the texture and soft blue-purple of the willow bushes. All of these photos were taken in the soft light after sunset until it was almost dark.

The eastern Sierra portion of my trip ended with a visit to some wild horses in the grasslands. I stood around observing the horses for about an hour hoping to see some action. They mostly stood around too.

  1. I like your mix of images with sparse but very colorful trees to the abstracts to the lively horses. Keep up the fun outings and sharing some of your photos.

      1. The compressed wave frequency at the bottom would indicate it to be further away, but hey who is doing a forensic analysis here.
        It is a really good image and is an inspiration. I once saw someone put a large tray of water in the foreground to make a nice nighttime reflection of the Dallas skyline in the bottom of the frame. I am sure folks thought it was just a reflection of the Trinity river.
