Sierra Nevada Mountains, California, USA
I took this photograph in February from Wacouba Pass on Death Valley Road while traveling to Eureka Dunes. I have a bias toward all things associated with the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I grew up in Southern California and the Sierra's were both a place to play and a place to hone my backcountry skills for a lifetime of hiking and mountaineering. Each time I look at a picture of the Sierra's I see both beauty and a mentor. Nikon D800, 80-200mm, F11, I/640 sec, ISO 100, 1:3 image crop.
