North Lake is South of Bishop, about an hour. I had been here two days earlier with Jerry Dodrill and Elizabeth Carmel on a training session. I decided to go back as there were no clouds on the morning we were there. This morning brought the clouds, absolute calm waters and peace. Another photographer and myself were the only individuals there. After shooting the sunrise on the mountains and lake I was getting ready to leave when I noticed the sun peeking through a mountain valley behind me, which was shining on the reeds.
