Christmas in the Eastern Sierra

121226007BW Rush Creek

The Eastern Sierra displays a range of beauty that is arguably unmatched anywhere.  I find it to be both incredibly fun yet challenging to photograph due to cold temperatures, snow, ice and inaccessibility of many places.  However, if you carry a tripod and are willing to ski or snowshoe your way into the backcountry you are rewarded with unmatched scenery and photographic visions.  Just remember to be open to what you see, carry extra batteries and show patience.  You will be rewarded with peace, serenity and amazing images.  The image of Rush Creek the day after Christmas 2012 is an example of the beauty of an Eastern Sierra winter.
