Sierra Frosting - Owens River
Sunrise provided dramatic shadows over the Eastern Sierra near Bishop. I was visiting the area near Mammoth for some cross country skiing, but found that the area south of Mammoth was more photogenic. Despite all of the fresh snow that Mammoth had received, it was traveling sideways at 30 MPH and didn't stay on the trees as I had hoped. Pre-sunrise was spent shooting near the Owens River in Bishop & then scouting shots for the following morning. Later each morning, I was skiing the cross country trails near Mammoth. Not a bad mix! While I really like the tones of the original color version, I thought the B&W conversion was also pretty dramatic.
