ESA – Day2pm
It might seem like a real stretch but I tend to take folks on our Eastern Sierra Adv to my favorite places in the Eastern Sierra to shoot. One on the top of the list is Horseshoe Lake. A true lake not messed with by man, it screams Sierra, especially when storms are blowing in like this day.
Our participants were a bit lost probably because I ran to one spot in the bottom of the lake and planted, simply spinning around in place in a circle shooting like a mad man.
With the high winds blasting the clouds past overhead, the scene was constantly changing. Shooting really wide, I simple kept turning and in a short time had clicked over 200 frames, each basically different. I’ve not gotten through all of them, just grabbed the ones that caught my attention.
This is by far one of my favorites (I know, it’s a repeat). The Maple Leaf looking design in the water’s edge is what caught me attention and then finishing in Silver Efex pro made the rest a snap. The key to making this type of photography work are the trees in foreground, they give scale and sense of place. It was a gorgeous afternoon.
