Doing bald is such a challenge

The radar picture was clear when I went to bed, it was clear when I awoke, it was going to be a bald sky morning. If landscape photography weren’t a challenge enough, we had this to deal with as well. We’re so lucky here on the Eastside to have a great place for just such a morning, Convict Lake.

Before the sun is even close to making an appearance the light starts to bounce around in the massive bowl. Shooting at -2, photo opps abound when you think in a more graphic style of shooting. This is when symmetry comes into play and probably when I chimp a lot. I tend to have the image on the monitor and stare at it just to be sure I like how all is aligned.

Then once the light does hit the top of Mt Morrison, the color is as one of our adventurers put it, spiritual. The intensity in the color is from the underexposure and nothing else. It doesn’t last long but it’s long enough. We ‘re heading south today to explore some more of the East Side. I’ll be blogging through the weekend to keep you informed and inspired.
