We had planned to drive back home up the highway 395, through the Owens Valley. When we checked in at our camp office, we learned that a snow storm had closed parts of 395 near Mammoth Lakes to campers and all vehicles needed chains. Whoops! Change of plans. So we got out a map and drove south for 2 hours to Lake Isabella, on the southern side of the Sequoia National Forest. I did not expect much here photographically, but grabbed my camera as I headed out for an evening walk. Look at what the camera saw! I cannot remember ever seeing quite such a blue sunset. This is, indeed, a lesson in being prepared for the unexpected. My morning shoot at Whitney Portal, which got me out of bed at 5:30, was a disappointment - pretty flat light. But this photo turned out to be much, much more than a consolation prize.
