This beautiful flower offset the yellow of the daisy remnants was taken on the Fullerton Loop trail. I nearly stepped on this gem while taking photos of the nearby Brea Dam. You never know what you'll stumble across while you're out and about.
A sunrise shot at the famous Mono Lake tufas. These unusual rock formations are ancient calcified water springs. Basically the underground streams of water from the Eastern Sierras hit the alkali lake and cause a chemical reaction. These particular tufas are hundreds if not thousands of years old.
One of the highlights from the High Sierra Trail in Sequoia National Park. The morning I took this photo I was in a mad dash to get to the lake from the Hamilton Lakes before the morning sun snuck up over the cliffs. Thankfully I beat the sun and captured these wonderful blue tones in the lake.
