Deep Sierras


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.
These five shots came from various spots. Some of you can easily recognize them and if you do please don't spell out the place's name here. I don't want these locations to get flooded with pseudo-hikers/photographers and "trashed" like Patagonia. (I've seen a toilet paper hanging on a tree right next to the trail there. Argentinian park rangers are getting freaked out and it's understandable why).
The last one is of course the Mt. Whitney. I was happy to finally captured it with some clouds.
