Chicken Summer Morning

Early morning rise at Chicken Spring Lake just past Cottonwood Pass enroute to Miter Basin; clouds are telling of thunderstorms to come.

Nice

Great composition. Looks like it was very peaceful.Was this the area you were looking for around the Rock Creek area in the southern Sierra? Did those thunderstorms ever materialize, or did they dissipate?

Re: Nice

This little lake is just past Cottonwood Pass and yep, I was chased up there by drizzling rain. And YES, there was thunder by 10AM and pouring rain by 3PM everyday....I bailed after 48 hours of this nonsense soaking wet and slipping in mud. One good point - the rain packed down the atrocious sand on the trail.

Re: Beautiful

The Alps and the Andes. Hard to find prettier scenery than the Sierra. Galen was right.

Like the shot very much. That lakeĀ“s just asking for a stone to be thrown in it though:o))

Great shot

The water is like a mirror. Nicely done.

Hard to Beat

The symmetry, contrast (I like that the water is a deeper color than the sky), and lighting are amazing.

Re: Nice

Tell you what - that sandy trail was an ass-kicker and I hope to not do it again any time soon. :P

Re: Love the soft light

It was very placid for a few short moments. In came the wind, coyotes, thunder, rain and actually hail a couple of days later.

I reckon

you could make a mint if you made prints of this. Also would make a great addition to this album if you felt so inclined:
