Distant Sierra Sunset
Sierra Nevada, California
After a tremendous backpacking trip from South Lake through Dusy Basin, Evolution Basin, and Lamarck Col to North Lake, I went across the Owens Valley to the White Mountains to spend some time with the bristlecone pines. As I was heading down from the Patriarch Grove, the light across the valley became dramatic over the Sierra, and I made this image with a telephoto lens. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
