Description

The Kearsarge Lakes area of Kings Canyon National Park is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, but is not particularly easy to get to. After taking the long, strenuous hike to the lakes, I was disappointed that wind was causing ripples on the lakes' surface, eliminating reflections. But after exploring the area a bit, I discovered the sheltered creek outlet pictured here. Because it was sheltered, it was receiving less wind--and had a glassy surface with reflections. I set up here and captured this scene--and got my desired reflection photo after all! "Working the scene" worked out beautifully in this case....
