This amazing lake high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California is named after a shootout that occurred in the 1800s. Today, it's a peaceful quiet place. The glacier that carved out this valley, has long since retreated, leaving behind a refuge for fisherman, hikers, and photographers. I shot this image early in the morning, just before sunrise, the lake was still, and the reflections of the mountains where nothing short of magical.
