Silver Lake (The Silmaril Series)

In the last blog I mentioned that taking pictures in a southern direction during the fall off the June Lake Loop you face a barely rising sun. I faced that here at Silver Lake.

 I tried to work with this drone shot in Photoshop, but I did not like the results of anything. So, I just kept this pretty close to what you see above.

I will continue this series at a later date. There is a project that I am working on that should be interesting, but I do not know how long it will take for me to get it done. I want to put most of my time and effort into that right now.

So, until then...see you later down the trail.

June Lake (The Silmaril Series)

Another drone shot I took in October of June Lake:

 The June Lake Loop is great for fall colors. However, one issue is the sun is a little lower in the southern direction at this time of year. So, it is either in the direction of the picture you want to take, or barely comes over the mountain side. In this case, the sun is not high enough to clear the lake so I ended up with some shadow on the left side of the picture. Had I come a few hours later that would change some, but I have been in areas that the later in the season you are the sun barely comes over the canyons.
