High Sierra Afternoon

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 1 March 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This photograph was taken at about 9,000' elevation looking north with a view of the west slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. The high mountains in the distance run above 10,000' to 11,000' in elevation and border Lake Tahoe which is located directly on the northeast side of this range.

Another magnificent landscape and what an amazing POV. Were you on the ground or flying when you took this?

@Suzanne: Suzanne thanks for the comments. This was taken from one of the top ridges at kirkwood ski resort with a 70-300 mm zoom lens

Outstanding. Scott, you make me wish that I had spent more time in the Sierra in winter.

Fantastic shot, another one :) I like very much the way you used the shadows, and also the color and definition. A great place to see.
