Any members know where Ansel set up for this picture of Clarence King?

Not by some sort of known information. But a few minutes looking at the topo and GE narrows it to noname lake A or B or pond C. And I like the latter. In any case once at that area checking all 3 out would be a short stroll. These are waters I was supposed to have visited last summer but ended up spending 3 days near Bullfrog instead because of the foul weather. Have a lot of unfinished business west of KP.

Thanks for your response David. Are you referencing a map showing the lakes and pond you mentioned? I was thinking there might be a group out there somewhere on the web that plotted his better known Sierra locations, but so far, nothing has come up on my Google searches.

Could be something else on the web but I would be surprised beyond piecemeal comments on specific well-known images Ansel captured. For a topographic map savvy photographer, figuring out approximate locations images were taken is often rather trivial when known peaks are in backgrounds with distant middle ground elements that then allows drawing a line to the source. If the rather small image posted was larger I could easily id which of the 3 bodies of water is the one.
