Granite and Glacier
by Steve Wolfe (trailhiker) 
Camera:
Pentax K10D
Location:
Big Pine, California
 
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
The eastern Sierra Nevada just west of Big Pine in California's Owens Valley is classic mountain scenery sculpted by glaciers. The remnants of one of those glaciers feeding into the lake give it its turquoise color, and the granite monolith of Temple Crag looms over the rugged scene. Taken with the Pentax DA 16-45mm lens and a Singh-Ray 3-grad ND filter, ISO 100, f5.6, 1/100 sec @ 16mm.
