Paradise in Paradise Valley

Since the whole point of this past weekend was to get as much shooting in as possible, after Convict Lake we continued down the road towards some of the great granite peaks outside of Bishop. Now normally the first thing that comes to mind when the word granite is said in reference to the Sierra’s is either Yosemite or Alabama Hills. Well there are actual a number of great places just outside Bishop that are great shooting.

As you can see i kept with the black and white theme it just seemed fitting for that morning. We had a lovely storm come through starting this past Friday and as we headed further south it got better. As the clouds moved over the mountains little pockets opened up and light spilled over the granite. Nothing lights up like granite does.

All of these shots are just quick clicks of the mountains, nothing complicated. Post was even easier, a little ACR and Silver Efex Pro for the conversion to black and white. When natural beauty strikes all that is needed is to look.
