Photo of the Month: Convict Lake

One of my favorite places to visit is the Mammoth Lakes area of California. The combination of mountains, lakes, and great hikes really makes it a special place. One of the lakes in that area is Convict Lake. Convict Lake is special because in the morning the sun rises and hits the unique mountain that stands tall over the lake itself. The color is incredible especially as it reflects off the mountain and the water.

I got this shot over last summer. My family humored me by getting up before the sun came up and we all stood in the cold morning waiting for the sun. There are not usually too many clouds in the morning but in this case a storm had just passed creating the perfect conditions. This shot is a blend of 7 exposures. Enjoy!
