North Lake Revisited

If you were following my blog last year then you might remember my unpleasant experience at North Lake. I opted to skip sunrise at North Lake with the photographers I was traveling with in favor of sunrise at the Owens River. When I met up the guys that morning they told me that a crowd …

Bishop Creek Canyon Fall Colors – 2009

Greg Lato, Chris Chin, Bill Brothers and I spent the last weekend of September exploring Bishop Creek Canyon, the Owens River and Devils Postpile National Monument. I’d shot photos with Greg previously in the Bay Area but was my first time meeting Bill and Chris. Chris and myself were the only two that had explored …

South Fork Bishop Creek Canyon

South Fork Bishop Creek Canyon Fall Color, Inyo National Forest, California After the sunrise shoot at the Owens River I went to breakfast before heading up Bishop Creek Canyon again to check out the fall color along the road to South Lake. On my previous visit in 2005, the South Fork had the best foliage …

Aspen Grove in the Buttermilks

Aspen Grove in the Buttermilks, Eastern Sierra, California Cory wanted to scout some photo locations deep into the Buttermilks so we took his Jeep on a bumpy ride. It was kinda freaky initially because I had never gone four-wheeling before and the car really was bouncing hardcore on the rocks. I probably should have worn …

The Buttermilks

The Buttermilks, Inyo National Forest, California Later in the afternoon, I went to the Buttermilks to meet up with local Bishop photographer, Cory Freeman. As I was waiting for him to arrive, I took this image along with several others. By the way, Cory has a cool web cam located in his house that points …

Trout Fishing, Middle Fork Bishop Creek

The majority of people I saw in Bishop Creek Canyon during the earlier part of the week were fishermen. In fact when I pulled into Lake Sabrina parking lot about 45 minutes before sunrise, two fishermen were already waiting in their van. Talk about dedication! Lake Sabrina Sunrise, Inyo National Forest, California True to my …

Lake Sabrina

Lake Sabrina Fishing Boats, Eastern Sierra, California I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve made the twenty mile drive out of Bishop to try getting a decent image or two of Lake Sabrina. Lake Sabrina is as difficult of a scenic landscape as I have ever photographed. Upon first glance, it is a very …

Abstract Lake Reflections

North Lake Fall Color Water Reflection Abstract, Eastern Sierra, California The water in North Lake kept having ripples because of the fishermen on the opposite shore so I thought it made some interesting patterns on the shoreline from the otherwise mirror-like reflections. See more of my Eastern Sierra photos.

Road to North Lake, Eastern Sierra

Dirt Road Winding Through Aspen Forest near North Lake, Eastern Sierra, California It is going to be a long ride to hell for those other two photographers. 🙂 This image was taken before the incident however. See more of my Eastern Sierra photos.

North Lake Reflection

North Lake Shoreline, Eastern Sierra, California Instead of worrying about what the other photographers were doing, I devoted most of my energy to playing around with the water reflections. The lines attracted me to this scene on the far shoreline of North Lake. This is definitely a great place for nature photography. See more of …
