First thanks to all of you that commented, favorite or just viewed the previous post. I have a little something different today from the same trip to the Eastern Sierra.


Spectacular cloud formations are illuminated in a rainbow of color by the rising sun over Lake Crowley in the Eastern Sierra desert. An unusual cloud formation shifts and moves like some strange sea creature constantly changing shape and lighting with each passing moment. It reflects nearly perfectly off the calm morning water and dances delicately with tiny ripples. Birds can be heard in the distance as they begin to stir and take flight. A fish jumps on the lake and for a moment, everything is perfect in the world. Such is the landscape of the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. A stunning landscape that defies reality overwhelms the senses and permanently etches itself in your memory. It's a day I will not soon forget.


Have a great day!
