This past Saturday

Postby bheiser1 » Mon Aug 29, 2011 9:02 pm

This past Saturday was a phenomenal day for photography in the northern Sierra. The standard clear summer skies were nowhere to be seen. Instead was a constantly changing cloudscape - brimming over with photographic opportunities.

I was in the Sonora Pass area early Saturday morning on my way to an overnighter (trip report later when I can eek out the time to process the photos & write it up :) ) ... and this is how my day started.

When a "photographer's" day starts like this they know it's gonna be a good day! :D

I hiked to Lamarck Col Friday. Glorious clouds all day...I was still shooting photos when I got home...rays of light, rainbows, etc. The only thing missing was a spectacular sunset. :)

Always nice to see those rays shining down. Nice shots to both of you.
