On this day I had been on the move photographing fall colors in California’s Eastern Sierra for over 13 hours. Now back in camp, I was enjoying an ice-cold IPA from a local brewery while preparing camp for dinner and darkness.
This scene is visible from my camp but from a slightly different angle and for some strange reason I could not stop looking at it. Eventually I gave in and once again I shouldered my 25-pound camera pack and took a 10-minute walk (uphill) that put me in position to make this photograph.
I was glad that I made the effort, because the light was even better from my new perspective! This was the last photograph that I made on this day.
