    Visited the Cottonwood Lakes basin a week ago. Was a bit pressed for time so didn't get a lot of photos, but here are a couple of the better ones. E-M5, ZD 12-60, f/8.0.

    Below Lake 1:
    E-M5    ---    12mm    f/8.0    1/500s    ISO 200

    Lake 2:
    E-M5    ---    37mm    f/8.0    1/400s    ISO 200

    Owens Valley from Mt. Langley:
    E-M5    ---    17mm    f/8.0    1/640s    ISO 200

    High country around Mt. Whitney:
    E-M5    ---    12mm    f/8.0    1/1000s    ISO 200

    Southern Owens Valley from Horseshoe Meadows Rd:
    E-M5    ---    12mm    f/8.0    1/640s    ISO 200

    Sigh - I used to get up to Cottonwood Lakes or one of the other Eastern Sierra trail heads almost every weekend all summer when I lived in Ridgecrest. Now I live in Baltimore - blah.

    Thanks for sharing, I so miss visiting there!

    Thanks Ken. I've been through Ridgecrest more than a few times on the way to Death Valley or the southern end of the Owens Valley (the Motel 6 there is a good place for a tired and dirty hiker after a long weekend). Hope you have the opportunity to visit again soon!

    I like that you captured the scenery without oversaturation or cartoonish HDR. Nice job. Especially the first.
