Brief Directions

Head northeast on route 198 through Three Rivers, then enter the park at the Ash Mountain entrance station and continue on the Generals Highway.

Notes

While the side light was great for the reasons listed above, it made the pine and fir branches strangely yellow. The sky was also washed out. I converted the image to black and white, then reduced the blue luminance and cropped out much of the lower portion of the scene to emphasize the tops of the trees.

Description

There was an unusually low ceiling all day, with intermittent fog even at the higher elevations. As the February sun began to set, the side light brought greater definition to the pine and fir boughs, while accentuating the near to far feel of this view.
