Here's a shot from the Eastern Sierra Death Valley Experience Workshop I'll be doing this March. There wasn't much for clouds that morning Mono Lake just a few on the horizon so I used a mid range lens to fill the frame with what I thought was interesting. It was a week day but there was still quite a few people on the shoreline so I was mainly shooting into the water to avoid the crowd. Some people might consider a lack of clouds or shooting crowded place a bad idea but you can always make something out of it! We had a great time.
