Since my family didn’t want to stay in the park while I took photos at sunset (and beyond), I dropped them off at the motel in Lee Vining, ate dinner, and drove back to the park. I decided to stay just shy of Tioga Pass, right here at Tioga Lake. I thought about walking (climbing) down to the shore, but decided I’d stay up here at the vista – much safer for me…LOL!
By the time I arrived (7:15pm), the light was focused on Mammoth Peak, so that’s pretty much what I did too. I did take a few pictures of the Kuna Crest.
But for the most part, I focused my attention to Mammoth Peak and Tioga Lake.
When I got back and processed the pictures, I wasn’t happy with these. Don’t get my wrong, I like them, but just didn’t say “wow” to me. I decided to to convert both to a black and white.
Bingo!! I definitely like the black and white conversion over the color version. I especially like the last one that gives a kind of ‘S-curve’ starting from the bottom left and takes you straight to Mt Dana – at least for me!
Hope you enjoyed these and stay tune for more images from my latest trip….
