It is amazing how many beautiful images our stay in the Eastern Sierras yielded last year. This one was taken at Millpond lake near Bishop, CA as fall colors were peaking.
This is another image taken at Mono Lake during our stay in Bishop last year. As the sun set the clouds lit up as if on fire and the tufas were aglow as well with the red color reflected from the lake. A totally amazing moment in time I will cherish for a long time.
I had been hoping to catch a good sunrise or sunset image at Hot Creek during our visit to Bishop in 2018. However, a couple of trips for a sunset shoot did not work out to my satisfaction as there was minimal cloud action. The lack of clouds did make for decent Milky Way photography conditions. This is one of the Milky Way shots that was created by combining a blue hour foreground shot with the Milky Way shot taken later during the night. There was not too much steam venting going on this evening so I will definitely be back to this beautiful location in the Eastern Sierras.
