I'm currently on a 12-day photography trip, starting in Bishop, CA, then on to Southern Utah to shoot in Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Bryce National Parks. I've never done a trip of this length on my own so I wondered how it would go, and so far I'm loving it!! I love to travel, I enjoy driving in the back country just about anywhere and being out in nature, and if I get a few photographs I'm happy with, that's icing on the cake.
I started in Bishop in the Eastern Sierra of California. Some areas had aspen at peak color, others had barely started, and other favorite spots had stands of aspen that looked like they were dying. The leaves looked as if they were just starting to turn but look to have died and dried up before they could. And these trees didn't look healthy either. Anyone know what's happening?
Below are a few images of my 2-1/2 days in the Eastern Sierra. I love the Eastern Sierra and I've been 3 times now, and I find something a little different each time. This trip I didn't see a single cloud in the sky!
Now I'm in Moab, shooting in Arches and Canyonlands for a couple of days. More later!
