Early evening sunset at Lake Ediza, Sierra Nevada.
This is the historic place for me. My husband and I did our very first backpacking trip in US to this lake back in 2006. We have visited this lake few times since then, but here I was just by myself doing my very first solo backpacking trip :-)… happy to find the lake crowned by rugged minarets as dramatic as ever! I did not hope for a good light at all as sun sets right behind the minarets making it way less desirable view to shoot. Here however I was truly rewarded for overcoming all obstacles when making this trip – heavy clouds light up by the setting sun made it rather perfect place to be and shoot!
