The Eastern Sierra

The photo was taken with my Nikon D5100 with the Nikon DX 35mm 1.8 lens. I cropped the hell out of it to get rid of excess sky and pasture that wasn't adding anything to the image -- the drama is in the mountains, and that's where I wanted the focus to be. 

The photo was taken at the wildlife viewing area on the west side of U.S. 395 a few miles south of Big Pine. There's often a herd of tule elk west of the road -- in fact, they were there on Monday, but I didn't have my telephoto lens with me. 

But that could be a good shot for the future -- elk + mountains + sunrise? Hmm.
