At 7,850 feet above sea level off the Highway 395 corridor in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, Convict Lake is a gem for nature lovers and trout fishermen. A 3 mile trail around the Lake is perfect for a saunter. There is also 4 mile trail from Mt. Morrison road which at its summit provides a photogenic view 700 feet above the Lake.
Convict Lake Resort has cabin rentals and a restaurant, and horses or fishing boats can be rented in late spring, summer and autumn.

Hello Ray - I like water as a feature in landscapes as it adds calmness to a composition and provides the opportunity for lovely reflections. This is a very good example of what I mean, the colours in the lake are beautifully rendered with an attractive blurriness that reminds me of an Impressionist painting. Your clever composition takes full advantage of the reflected scenery and I like the thin strip of land in the upper frame. What an idyllic spot to be a convict!
