June Lake
Eastern Sierras
Hwy 395

On my first full day along the Hwy 395 corridor after sunrise a girlfriend and I headed north. We wanted to see Devil’s Postpiles but discovered they were still buried under snow so closed. At the Mammoth Lake Visitors Center we picked up tips on where the most scenic places were.
The Ranger suggested June, Gull, Silver, Convict, and Rocky Creek Lakes as well as Hot Creek Geological Site, and of course Mono Lake.

This wasn’t too crowded. The water was just a gorgeous shade of blue. More aqua than blue. The snow capped mountains ringing the lake was just as lovely.

More lake photos to follow as I visited 4 lakes on Sat. June 5th.

Netting
Sand
Natural Light

A variation of the still life I did last year using a few added elements in the composition.
I used an 85mm f/1.8AF-D lens with a Kenko 20mm extension tube. No flash. I like this composition much better than the one I put together last year. I like the warmth and additional elements of the netting, sand, grass, and greenery.
Netting- saved from a turkey breast, and the greenery is from a package of California Rolls purchased “to go” from my favorite Japanese resto.
