Congratulations to dakel for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 7 votes - View Previous Winners


Hi all. Had a quiet summer photography wise - made one trip up to the White Mountains but got chased off the mountain by lightning and afterwards my friend didn't feel well so that trip was a bust. So as newly anointed empty nesters I took my wife for her first trip to the Eastern Sierra, last weekend, for the autumn colour.

She loved it and claimed it was like seeing heaven. We visited a few areas new to me, like Lobdell Lake and Sagehen Summit, both locations blared out in social media as being "go now" status, which is how I found out about them. Also did the classic South Lake, North Lake peeping. June Lake was still green when I drove through it but Convict Lake and McGee Creek canyon were as usual spectacular. Here's a selection of my favourites. Comments and critiques always welcome.

The white trunks against fall color always pleases. This time, however, my favs are #4 and #6 for the lighting.

Well done series. Your angle on the North Lake image was worth the extra effort.

Thank you kindly. It's funny you should mention the extra effort, because climbing that hill in low light, at high elevation, with a lack of sleep, resulted in me slipping, tripping and even falling once.

Thanks Cedric. I enjoyed your website! I visited Brussels many years ago when I lived and worked in the Netherlands for a year. Beautiful city.

Fortunately the Eastern Sierra has so many locations to explore. I've been 5 times and only scratched the surface. I'm sure that pales in comparisons to the number of your visits!
