I got lost...

Uploaded: October 08, 2004 17:05:28


I was on my way to photograph fall colors on June Lake, but I missed the exit. The next exit was for Mono Lake...I looked at the sky and saw what promises to be a beautiful sunrise, so I decided to skip June Lake, and went to Mono Lake instead. I barely made it...

Francis ole man, LOL.. this sent chills through my old body. I for one am very glad you missed that exit, and also glad you made it in time. The detail and colors are simply stunning. Still waiting on details from you on catching the perfect sunrise or sunset. #830887

Hey Francis! This is another beauty from Mono Lake. Glad you made this exit and got there in time for this morning color. Seeing your image reminded me...I've got my D100 back now and need to load that curve you sent me. Would be interested in your specs for this one. Again, great shot! #830956

When fate wants to take you somewhere its usually best to go with it. You sure made the right choice this time. Your reward was a beautiful sunset photo that we all get to enjoy. Nicely shot also. Congratulations and good luck, Francis! #914981
