Brad Goldpaint submitted this to the OP B&W Cover Assignment. To date it's the most popular Assignment on the website. Check out the full gallery...there are over 1400 submissions and the overall caliber of the work is excellent. Brad Goldpaint took this photo in the Mammoth Lakes area of California. He writes, "Sunrise at my favorite alpine lake in the Sierra Nevada, within the Ansel Adams Wilderness, along the John Muir Trail." It's a beautiful part of the world and I'm looking forward to being up there for some sunrise photography myself.
