It was a great day in the Eastern Sierra's high country. An early season snow storm has just passed. The morning breeze was crisp, and the sky was all dramatic! Here's a picture that I have wanted to capture for sometime. I was actually here last year but the condition was not right. This time, I got some nice pink-colored sky to compliment the scene. As I waited for the condition to peak, many photographers started to line up around the lake. Clouds were moving fast, as wind also started to pick up. Soon after, the sky started turning red, and pink. Colors were in all directions! It was hard to contain my excitement. As soon as the first light hit the summit, it was showtime!

I like how the foreground rocks lined up with the reflected light from the alpenglow which then leads to the mountains. The submerged rocks along the shore also added some interest to the overall scene.
