Photo: North Lake at Sunrise

Sunrise at North Lake I

Sunrise at North Lake I

Just as sunrise was about to reach the edge of the far side of the lake, the wind picked up a and shifted direction to blow directly at me.  This, along with the longer shutter speed, gives this photo the wonderful pulling you in affect that I love.  While usually foreground interest items help to pull you into a photo, sometimes the subtlety of a wind modified reflection can do the same.

  1. Just saw Aspen Reflections III in your gallery. I really like that one a lot!

    Thanks Richard! That particular photo was taken at June Lake Loop back in 2005. The Aspen Reflections I and II were taken very close to there as well. Hard to believe that when we were up there 10 days ago June lake was still green…

  2. I haven’t had any luck at June Lakes at any of the two previous fall trips i took. People talk about it a lot though so perhaps I just didn’t look hard enough.

    I think the key is that June Lake turns much later than Bishop Creek as it’s at a lower elevation. I’ve always had good results there on the 2nd or 3rd weekend of October (generally). I’m planning on heading up next weekend to Bodie/Mono/June Lake, so we’ll see if my generality holds true.
