June Lake loop Fall Color

Fall Color at June Lake Loop

fall color 2

For those of you who have not been around the June Lake loop this time of year you should make it a point to go around the third weekend of october because it is unreal my friends. What an explosion of color!. Sara and I took a trip here this weekend and we were breathless in the presence of this amazing spectacle. I think I had enjoyed being there and taking it all in more than looking through the lens. It did prove to be quite difficult to render these leaves sharp with all the wind we were having. Quite a challenge between chasing the light and finding the right shutter speed while still having the depth of field I wanted. I also shot two rolls of 120 so there might be a couple images to follow. Now just go already, pack your items, these colors are best from now on to the next few days!

RhubarbTook a nice stroll through Big Creek with my main man, John O'Connor. He has a few nice shots of the subject as well. The guy was even kind enough to let me use his back up body and some gear for the trek. I appreciate things like that especially when I'm without a camera for a couple weeks. I asked him a while ago out of pure curiosity one day what he thought made a great photograph. His reply was simple: "vision" I will tell you that I think it is extremely important and I agree with him 100%. See I guess I don't really realize it that way, although every good photographer has a vision at least once in a while, I have always been a "connection" type of guy myself but in this photograph I had a problem. Since I didn't have my own gear I was out of a polarizer and thought of what John said and worked my way around it envisioning a black and white piece. Thanks!
