Congratulations to Gregg B. for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 12 votes - View Previous Winners


I've been to the Sierras many times before but never really hiked deep into the mountain range. Just like a lot of photographers I mostly shot from the areas near by 395 highway that are easy accessible and require no major hiking or any hiking at all (e.g Alabama Hills). But, after seeing some very interesting shots taken by hikers/mountaineers (like a frequent poster here Dave Dillemuth), and study shots taken by Ansel Adams I decided to explore places that are harder to get and require sometimes even a serious hike.
So, in the last two months I've been hiking quite a bit and shooting places with peaks I've never shot before, or even knew existed there. I know I've only scratched the surface since I've done so far only three major hikes to several lakes but I've planned at least 20 more already to hike up and see what this huge 130 miles long range has to offer.
The last one is of course the Mt. Whitney. I was happy to finally captured it with some clouds.

Nice photos! your efforts were definitely rewarded. Number 2 is a beauty, I really like the way it is composed with the trees to left and the rocks and the log in the foreground. The colors work for me as well.

The ole don't ask don't tell policy.


I'm still intrigued every time i see a Whitney picture. The peak is quite flat on top even though it looks like a jagged spike from the valley or AHs area.


Epic work as always.

Really inspiring work Gregg. Each one makes me want to be standing in the location to appreciate it all, fine job capturing and conveying the feelings and drama of the light. I appreciate each one, great presentation!

Excellent imaging Gregg. Seasoned hikers already know all of the Sierra and these places are not going to be trashed by disclosing the locations here. And, btw, there is only one 'S' in Sierra. There is no plural for this word. 😊

The first, bathed in rich alpenglow, is my favorite, Gregg. Over the past 60+ years I have explored such places off the beaten path into mostly untouched Sierra wilderness. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful, rugged peaks and photos. Where is this place? Looks like Patagonia
Just kidding.
