This weekend was spent photographing incessantly around the 20 Lakes Basin area in the Hoover Wilderness. Amazing geography accompanied by AMAZING light. I've posted some more already on facebook that may make their way over here, but if you just can't wait, hit the link.

  1. Beautiful John - just beautiful. I like your vantage point too, it seemed to give you a great composition and I love that little patch of trees on the left.

  3. This photograph is absolutely beautiful....There’s something about getting out in nature with the challenge of capturing some of the amazing beauty around us.
    Over the past year, I have found myself in the freezing cold, (I'm from Canada) braving snowfalls, and sliding over the ice in winter, then attacked by mosquitoes and black flies in summer, all in the hopes of capturing a glimpse of nature's beauty with my camera...

  5. It is always a strong feeling to be outside after a storm, just in time to reach all the changes! You did it!!!! :)

  6. Thanks Geir. I was actually outside DURING this storm, rain, snow, lightning, hail, thunder and all! We set up camp a little short of where we had planned just in case the weather didn't let up. Fortunately it did! And I have no regrets for setting up where we did. Can't go wrong in this area!

  7. You're absolutely correct Marilyn. The reward is the challenge itself, as well as simply experiencing and being IN/OF nature. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Thanks Tyler! I spent quite a bit of time at this spot photographing the changing light, and the change was pretty dramatic! I even came back in the morning, though it was after I had photographed from a couple of other locations for sunrise...
