Five Lakes Basin, Sierra Nevada

This is small lake in Five Lakes Basin in the northern Sierra, taken late in the evening as I made my way to Glacier Lake about a mile further. It was dark by the time I arrived. It's not as dramatic as the southern High Sierra, but it's where I grew up backpacking and I still love the gentleness of this northern California wilderness.


Shot with a Canon Elan 7; Fuji Velvia 50 film; Canon 17-40mm lens; B+W 81B warming filter; Galen Rowell/Singh-Ray 3-stop hard GND filter.
