Once at the bottom of an ancient sea, the rocks at Convict Lake have been thrust up and tilted to give a dramatic framing to the water. The lake is named for a band of horse rustlers who tried to hide out from a posse in the late 1890's. The posse captured the men who were later hung from the Cottonwoods in nearby Bishop. One of the lawmen was killed. The highest peak (at the center) is named for him; Mt. Morrison.

Great place, pov and exposure. But you should try smaller apertures on landscape ;)

Great shot David. It's too bad you don't have a bit more blue sky, but I know how that goes. The lighting isn't bad at all, and the subject is absolutely marvelous. Nice work.
