Eastern Slope Sierras Fall Colors - GH3. 11 imgs.

From a 9 day trip from Monterey, by way of Yosemite's Tioga Pass (10,000') eastward to SR 395 heading south, including sites around Lee Vinings, Mammoth Lakes, Bishop, Lone Pine, and a side trip to Death Valley, ordered from north to south on 395 in the Owens Valley, between the 14,000'+ Sierras and equally high White Mountains to the east.

Perfect weather, but would have liked some clouds, altitudes generally between 6000-9000'. Used the GH3/P-L 14-150 workhorse w/ circ. pol. filter for all, and yet to process the GH2/7-14mm shots. All from RAW>ACR>CS6.

First time shooting aspen fall colors, and I soon found that getting as close to the sun  dramatically enhanced the shimmering yellows, which became quite flat with sun behind.

Thanks for looking,

Mammoth Lakes City Park 8000'

Convict Lake 7700' - South of Mammoth Lakes
