Eastern Sierras Summer Storm
Photograph - Photography
This is the Ritter Range in the Ansel Adams wilderness area of California's Sierra Nevada. This particular photo was taken from the Mammoth Overlook, just past the Mammoth Ski Resort on the way to Devil's Postpile National Monument.
Peaks within the Ritter Range include Mount Ritter, at 13,143 feet, Banner Peak, at 12,936 feet, and the Minarets, a group of sharp peaks south of Mt. Ritter. Thousand Island Lake, Ediza Lake, Garnet Lake, Lake Catherine, Minaret Lake, Cecile Lake, and Shadow Lake all lie within the Ritter Range.
This photo was processed with a technique called High Dynamic Range (HDR). I took 5 exposures at different settings, combined them using special software, and then converted the photo to black and white.
