She is such a Greeter!
Came over the hill heading towards home, the grand lady of light, Mono Lake was putting on a grand show. I had to stop in the middle of the hwy, stand on the truck and shoot over the sage the lady with Lee Vining Canyon in the background to get the first shot.
Coming around the corner and heading south on Hwy395, the winds started to play with the clouds doing their magic. With that, I knew where I needed to head so leaving some rubber I went there.
Sure enough, the cloud was the perfect sweep for my favorite tree. I only spent a half hour with the lady but just sure does know how to entertain a guy!
As for image finishing, you should know the drill by now, a little Silver Efex Pro for the B&W, Tonal Contrast for the tree. Videos on how I do that are in the library.
