I made a wonderful image at this location way back in 1999. We moved back to Mammoth in 2003 and over the years I had forgotten about this location and its possibilities. In 2013, I had a back-country workshop scheduled for the same days that the colors were peaking. As it turned out, those days were projected to be really stormy and cold for a group in the mountains. We spent our first day at North Lake, and then scouted more locations around Bishop Creek. It 'dawned" on me that the weather looked to be scattered snow showers on the next morning, and that the colors were really good! We left Mammoth at 5AM, drove to Lake Sabrina, and all were all set up and ready to go when this amazing light appeared. All of the workshop group made wonderful images with a moderate telephoto, about 150mm. But the weather was seriously cold and windy! During the pre-dawn minutes I went to assist each student. There was a strong gust of wind and another one of my students caught my camera as it was blowing down! Afterwards we all retreated to closest coffee shop.

Purchase Guide:

Print purchases are a two step process.

STEP 1: You select size and print type (matted print, or canvas). This first payment purchases the unfinished print or a canvas at the price you see at the time of online purchase and it secures your place in our production queue. 
STEP 2: We will call you to complete your order with a perfect frame, matting upgrades, glass choices, other customizations, appropriate shipping charges and taxes are applied and with that second and final charge the purchase is complete.  

Margaret and Vern both want your purchase to be exactly as you want it.  Creating investment worthy photographs for your walls requires our direct personal attention.
