Bench Lake and Arrow Peak

Arrow Peak behind Bench Lake, John Muir Wilderness, Kings Canyon National Park, California.


Better on Black

Original and other sizes


Yet another in my John Muir Trail series. It is a panorama, a stitch of seven, best viewed in its large size. Please view my other JMT images in my JMT set.


This is a HDR panorama of Bench Lake and Arrow Peak. Each of the seven composite images is itself a three-exposure, shutter bracket composite. All images used in this composite were made with a Nikon D7000 and Tokina 11-16mm.


My only company while trekking out to and visiting this lake was a deer and a dragonfly. This is an absolutely beautiful lake with a spectacular reflection. I was lucky to be able to make these images when I did because shortly after a steady wind arrived which disturbed the lake surface. I stayed here for well over an hour just soaking up the beauty before shouldering the pack again and heading for this day's destination, Lake Marjorie.
