Fall Colors at Convict Lake 2017

One of my favorite fall colors location has to be Convict Lake. Drove the 4 hour trip to capture the first light. Got there around 5am and tried to find a different location other than the bridge. Since I’m not to stable trying to walk on rocks, and in the dark, I decided on the handicapped fishing pier. The half-moon was still overhead so I had to do so long exposures while I waited for sunrise.
