Above Mammoth Lakes


Overlooking Twin Lakes
Mammoth Lakes, California (October 2016)
Zeiss Ikon ZM + Zeiss Biogon 21/4.5 ZM
Ilford Pan F Plus + T-MAX RS (stock) 4 minutes

There’s a first for everything, and this was ours for visiting this part of California.  What a stunning area!  Neither of us had ever been here before, and we both vowed that it wouldn’t be the last — too much beauty to experience in too short of a visit.

    Looks amazing, great shot. I’ve not got to mammoth either despite it not being very far away really. Need to add it as a destination for the trailer 🙂

      I’m glad you kept the image like that with the dramatic diagonal cut off from the sunlight! It can be very tempting to lift out shadows in landscapes but the nature of that stark contrast absolutely makes the image and tells a story about the location too 🙂

      Thank you for your kind words, Sarah. That’s one thing I actually like about some photos is getting just a hint of what can be seen, but nothing to draw from the image beyond that. 🙂
