Take Hwy 395 to June Lake Loop. Rush Creek runs between Silver Lake and Grant Lake. With a little exploring, there are many photo ops to be discovered.
This image is appealing to me because it uses leading lines and contrast to show off the aspens rather than putting much attention on the water or rocky shore.
This photo was taken along Rush Creek on the June Lake Loop. Since the area is in a shaded canyon, it can be photographed later than other early morning opportunities. Extra light bounces off the cliffs to help out with the lighting.
