Snowy Fall colors in the Sierras (large images)
Oct 9, 2011

Two days of amazing opportunity to photograph
fall colors in the Sierras with snow in the background!
Lucky to capture a storm passing by in Death Valley.
A beautiful sight. All taken with NEX-5N, CV 125,
Leica-R 60 Macro and Contax 1.4/35

Fabulous shots! I assume they were taken in the Eastern Sierra. Can you tell me specifically where? I'm thinking of heading over the mountain in a week or two to shoot the color. I always seem to be a couple weeks early for the really good stuff. The combination of snow with the color is really rare and beautiful. Seems early for that much snow.

Bishop Creek canyon
In reply to dr jim, Oct 9, 2011

All taken in Bishop Creek canyon. It was almost at peak when storm hit on Wed.
Some leaves got hurt, but most survived. Now it's past peak everywhere
in Bishop Creek canyon, but it's not even close to anything else in locations

further North. So it's kind of weird, I wouldn't go now, but wait for the reports

from June Lake etc. North Lake still was great yesterday - this is a pic of the tunnel,
but the staff by the lake - the reflection pano taken the day before - was gone.

In reply to aman74, Oct 9, 2011

Sorry, the camera doesn't record the manual lens information.
It would be nice to be able to program it...

Yeah, I realized that afterwards.

So which lens took what is a secret?

Stunning shots - lovely light and great lenses to capture them with.

Although I'm a real sucker for macro with creamy bokeh, my favourite is actually the first shot - the leaves on those trees look three dimensional in a way that I haven't seen before.

nature rises strong feelings and might be impressive.

but those pictures aren't impressive nor is there any impressive content or composition or graphic to be seen.

it's just: I was there in the storm, and look how nice indian summer is. i can't show you so i just tell you the story...
enjoy the feelings. and get a better photograph.
