Description

I was fortunate to have timed my second Eastern Sierra trip of Fall 2014 after a windy couple of days that knocked some of the leaves down, while much of the color still remained. I really wanted to find a different composition of Convict Lake, so I scouted out this area of the shoreline the night before and decided to use the leaves and shoreline as a foreground in the image. The pre dawn sky was colorful, but I preferred the alpenglow in this image as it fit well with the fallen aspen and cottonwood leaves on the shoreline. I used a 3 stop Lee soft GND to balance the exposure of the sky and peaks lighting up.
