I passed this tree while taking a short hike between Wright's Lake and Beauty Lake. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
In the early morning with mist rising off the lake the color of the light is almost monotone. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

A little later in the morning the sun starts to peak through the trees. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Minox 35EL 35mm' (Click for larger view)

As the sun rises the colors start to show themselves and the ducks start to appear. Wright's Lake is located at 6941 feet above sea level near the Desolation Wilderness. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

Now that the sun is up the beauty of the lake is apparent. Notice how clear the water is. This lake is not very deep. In most places you can stand without the water going over your head. (That is if you can stand the cold!) Wright's Lake, CA. 'Minox 35EL 35mm' (Click for larger view)
The beauty of this lake at the high altitude of 7000 feet is almost beyond description. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

The colors of these pine needles were too much for me to resist taking a picture of them. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

As can be seen, this picture of Wright's Lake was taken as sunset approached and the color of light changed from white to orange. Wright's Lake, CA. 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

This crystal clear stream feeds Wright's Lake. The water looked to be about ten feet deep at the spot where I took this picture. Wright's Lake, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

This picture of Wright's Lake is actually a double exposure, two images recorded on the same piece of film. The first exposure of the moon was taken at night with only the moon in the frame. The second exposure was taken the next day. I remembered approximately where the moon was in the original exposure and composed the second exposure appropriately.

This picture of Wright's Lake was taken very late in the day as sunset approached. Wright's Lake, CA 'Mamiya RB67 Pro-S 6x7 SLR' (Click for larger view)
This picture of Wright's Lake was taken very early in the morning before sunrise. This is a color photo if you are wondering. The lack of color is totally due to the early morning light conditions. Wright's Lake, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
The rowboat in this picture looks like it is just waiting for the next fishing trip on the lake. Wright's Lake, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)

I don't know how long it has been since these trees were cut down, but I do know it has been many years. Wright's Lake, CA 'Nikon F100 35mm SLR' (Click for larger view)
