An amazing sunset from the outlet cascade of Gem Lake in Little Lakes Valley, Eastern Sierras.Buy this Print from Fine Art America
I took this photo while backpacking in little lakes valley with the Forest Service. We are building a trail re-route and creek crossing just below this fall.
Once again the mosquitos were absolutely HORRENDOUS in the whole area, especially around twilight hours. They were so bad it was almost impossible to actually take the photo. Only having my hands exposed during the time, I literally couldnt even adjust my exposure or look through the viewfinder without each becoming infested with them.
As the sun began to set and illuminate the clouds the amount of reflected light hitting all around me was mind boggling making this photo look boarder line surreal. I knew while I was taking the shot that some would not believe me that the color and amount of yellow warm light reflecting from the clouds was real, but I assure you this was how it really was.
